The Diebeshöhle (Thieves Cave) is located at the north eastern rim of the table mountain Quirl. The horizontal cave ids of impressive size, but consists only of a single huge chamber. It is visited for a very long time. The first documented visit happened in 1685, which is recorded by an inscription in the cave wall. But it was visited by man since Stone Age, as archaeologic remains were discovered in the cave.
Inside the cave is a stone desk made of a huge sandstone slab. It was errected for a hunting meal of the prince elector.
