Delve into the history of holy Beatus and the legend of the Dragon of Beatenberg! Visit the St. Beatus Caves, where holy Beatus - our village’s namesake - spent part of his life.
The amazing Beatushöhlen cave system will fascinate adventurers young and old. In the museum, you can find out all about the caves’ formation and the legend of holy Beatus. There is also a children’s playground, restaurant and kiosk.
You can get to the St. Beatus Caves using the STI 21 bus from Interlake West or from Beatenbucht. You can also take a boat trip to Sundlauenen. From the boat stop, you can easily walk up to the St. Beatus Caves.
The Festung Waldbrand fortress is an extraordinary artillery fort of the réduit national, which - compared to other forts - has an impressive entrance hall with almost cathedral-like dimensions.
The fortress is best visited with a competent guide - the Beatenberg Tourismus office will be happy to make a reservation for you.
