The Dreieingangshöhle (Three Entrance Cave) is one of about 40 caves at the Rosenstein near Heubach. This so-called mountain is actually a piece of the Swabian Jura plateau, cut off by river valleys. The cave is a cave ruin with three small entrances in a cliff face, which are linked behind the entrances. The narrow cave is much fun for children. The entrance area was frequented by man during Stone Age and Bronze Age.
