Is the entrance to the Hohle Fels cave possible by just 'walking in'

When I visited the cave it was possible to just 'walk in'. There is no museum or visitor centre (there are plans to build a visitor centre), just one or two people who give some explanations or offer a guided tour if someone is interested (in German only). The cave isn't very large, though it is the largest of the six inscribed caves. Seems, that currently the cave is open also on weekdays.

The coordinates in the nomination file indicate the locations of the caves, at most locations you have to walk a few minutes from the parking lot to the cave (see my Review). The archaeopark should be signposted.

How are the public transport options?

I am not sure, because I travelled by car. Trains between Ulm and Blaubeuren should run frequently even on Sundays. I guess there are also busses from the train station in Blaubeuren to Schelkingen, but I'm not sure if there are stops along the Bundesstraße. In the Lone Valley Niederstotzingen is the largest town, I guess.

clyde and nfmungard
when do you plan to be there?
I will visit the caves on August 12th (will drive there from Holland the night before, and pick up Worms or Mathildenhöhe on the way back on Sunday)

I shall be visiting next Sunday by car. I plan to drive very early from Luxembourg to arrive at the Archaeopark after 10am. Unfortunately I already have plans for the following weekend.

Planning to combine this with a private appointment I have in Frankfurt on August 25. Frankfurt, Ulm, same neighborhood. And Germany needs to be complete again ;)

I will also try to make it to Mainz and Darmstadt on Saturday/Sunday. I am pretty sure I have seen the Shum sights, but I did not take note then.

I am not sure if the Jewish cemetery in Mainz has regular opening hours. Part of the nomination is only the Old Jewish cemetery Judensand ("Denkmalfriedhof") in the Mombacher Straße, near the main Train station.

In Worms, the Synagogue and mikvah are open daily, also the Cemetery Holy Sands (only closed on Saturdays):

I contacted the Jewish community in Mainz. Let's see what they say. Worms is just too far off for me that day. I wonder if I have seen the site in Speyer. The town isn't that big.

After finally finishing my Uzbekistan reviews, I'll write a review with some more practical pointers for those who would like to visit all the caves as well as the most important museums in the area. Germany is complete again :) thanks a lot hubert for your valuable information.

I also wanted to recommend an interesting book which is sold at the Archaeopark Vogelherd or the Museum in Blaubeuren in German and English : Welt Kult-Ur Sprung, World Origin of Culture (ISBN 978-3-7995-1168-1). It's an excellent souvenir with information and photos of all the inscribed caves, the 3 nearby museums and the main findings.

The Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth reopens in April 2018 with opera performances of Artaserse by Johann Adolph Hasse.
It is not mentioned but I expect that they will also offer guided tours.

And a flyer with information on the restoration:
