Crystal Cave is a cave near Kutztown in Berks County, Pennsylvania, United States, the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. It was discovered by William Merkel and John Gehret on November 12, 1871, and quickly became a popular tourist attraction.
Shortly after its discovery, newspapers reported that it was "more beautiful than the famous Mammoth cave in Kentucky." The first "show cave" to open in Pennsylvania, it remains one of the oldest continuously operating show caves in the United States.

  • I had a fantastic experience at Crystal Cave exploring with my kids and nephews. Our tour guide was super nice and knowledgeable, and the cave itself is interesting for kids and adults alike. The gift shop is nice as well, sort of feels like you're stepping back in time, and the fireplace was a great place to warm up on a cold March day.
  • We got there at 1p and were told 3hr wait for the tour, we did the sleuth and left
