Not too far from the Gutenek Castle (now known as Dobrnica) in the direction of Hudičev graben, you will find the Ledenica cave (Bierkeller cave).
The way is well signposted and the cave is easy to find. Many years ago, this natural limestone cave was expanded and used to store ice for cooling the beer brewed in the Dobrnica Castle. Later, it was used as a place to store drink in the cold. In winter months, the locals collected ice from the nearby ponds and stored it in the cave, where it didn’t melt until late summer. Outside the cave, you can enjoy the fresh air sweetened by the coniferous trees and pick a handful of heather, hellebores, cyclamens, lungworts, primroses and liverworts.
Don’t miss the beautiful marsh marigolds that grow around the cave entrance. From here, you can continue on your way to Hudičev graven or climb over the hill, crossing the Drenovec, and head to Brdce, where you can see the Šumej black kitchen and enjoy a picnic at the Marovšek farm. From there, you can continue all the way to Brdce and Paški Kozjak.
The Ledenica cave is part Ana´s Trail.
