The average temperature in the cave is +10°C/50°F, therefore appropriately warm clothing and footwear is recommended!
In order to protect the cave, the maximum number of participants is 10 people! If the number is exceeded, those interested can see the cave in several groups, scattered over multiple starting times.
Due to the limited capacity of the cave, it is advisable to inquire ahead of time about available tour times at the Jósvafő ticket offices!
