The Feuchter Keller (Wet Cellar) is a daylight shaft leading into a cave system. This cave tour is a true caving expedition offered by the Höhlenrettungsdienst Salzburg (Cave Rescue Salzburg) for people interested in high level caving trips. It is not really a difficult trip, but there are definitely no trails, and beneath full caving gear some vertical experience and surefootedness is necessary. However, the guys from the cave rescue are the right bunch to get anybody back to the surface, one way or another.
