with participation of Hardy Schabdach (Bindlach)
This paper presents some sandstone caves in the surroundings of
Bayreuth, North Bavaria. Genetic aspects of the caves are reported
only in a short manner. This topic will be a main subject in a
paper presented later on.
In the area of the map 6035 Bayreuth fourteen caves in upper
triassic (Rhaetium) - lower liassic (Hettangium) sandstone are now
documented. Documentation started in 1984. The longest cave
presented, called "Hohler Stein bei Forkendorf" (Hollow Stone near
Forkendorf), has a total length of 23 m.
