The Allander Tropfsteinhöhle (Dripstone cave of Alland), named after the nearby town Alland, is located at the slopes of the Großer Buchberg (467 m asl) in the Wienerwald. The cave is rather small, but it is one of the largest caves in Lower Austria. It consists of rifts and bedding plane passages, some up to 12 m high.
The Allander Tropfsteinhöhle, as the name suggests, is noted for its nice speleothems. The cave shows stalacties, stalagmites and moonmilk. It is also a paleontological site, with remains of brown bears (Ursus arctos). A 10,000 years old brown bear skeleton is on display in the cave in a small exhibition.
