I came across the same information too, whilst trying to fathom the Hochthron thing out. Same here - i have stored it away in case it becomes relevant to any developing line of research.

What immediately came to my mind, was that i am sure i have read that places such as the Untersberg, and Mt Shasta, are referred to as "Geonodes", and also, as we know, heart shakras.

My initial (but all to brief) thought, was that there MUST be something special about this place for them to use it as a Pseudolite. After all, there are many more, larger and more famous mountains, not too far away, which one would think would be used for such as purpose.

Also, you have the legend that a ray of light will shine down (templar legend), and the place where it meets the earth was mentioned to be the Untersberg. Is this because there is some kind of connection between that which is beyond outr atmosphere, and the mountain. Does the mountain "attract" energy from space, and possibly the sun? I am certainly no physicist/scientist, but for some reason i thing that this mountain does provide some sort of link bretween earth and space - possibly due to gravitational anomolies and high geomagnetism.

I think you are right to make reference here, and certainly something may well become relevant further down the road.

Some more in formation regarding the Galileo Pseudolite on the Hochthron (and , as it turns out, the 5 other Pseudolites in the Berchtesgaden area):

The GATE project is a German research project that simulates signals from then future Galileo satellite with ground based radio signals.
Six Pseudolites have been installed on surrounding peaks (Grünstein, Toter Mann, Hochthron, Kneifelspitze, Kehlstein und Jenner), with two central monitoring stations. They encompass an area of 65 sq km in which they transmit Galileo signals. The two monitoring stations have been positioned in the centre of the area, on the Berchtesgaden radio transmitter.

Through it’s infrastructure, GATE is in the position to generate the navigation signals of the Galileo satellites, and simulate natural influencing factors (eg effects through the Ionosphere, Troposphere, etc), in order to amend signal types and strengths as required.

Source :

Also, check out the GATE website for more information at

Map showing Pseudolites:

3D Pic of the same:

What is interesting is that they can simulate influences of the ionosphere and troposphere……. I go back to my previous thoughts – Is there a specific reason that this area is being used?
It there a good “connection” with the ionosphere, etc in Berchtesgaden? Better than elsewhere? Anything to do with the geomagnetism or gravity anomalies in the area? Remember the radio signals from the N2 ruins that were received from South America……..?

It’s only my own, relatively uninformed speculation, but I think there must be a link…….

formerly it may has been a cult-place.
coming from berchtesgaden, the fuchsstein is the first place, where you can see the "teufelsloch".

This was very interesting. One part of the article that stood out to me was this:

"one is struck less by the discrete cross in the flagstone floor than by a shoulder-high marble pillar in the center of the chapel on which rests a large, translucent mountain quartz."

What's with the quartz atop a pillar? A crystal of some sort? What is it's purpose or meaning?

Sorry, what ruins/signals are those?
I did search this site for "N2" but found nothing that seemed relevant.
Sorry if I somehow missed it!

I mentioned it in a previous post of mine - some time ago now. When i have more time, i can try and find it.

Basically, there is a specific area on Obersalzberg, in the ruins of a communications building buolt by the Nazis, and known as NII.

At a certain time, and on a certain radio frequency, a "spanish" sounding radio station can be received. Research showed the station to be based in Bolivia, South America.

At the time, i made the comment that it was coincidental that a lot of Nazis fled to South america after the war, and was this radio reception connected at all with this.

My thoughts are, that the Ionosphere plays a role in the ability to transmit radio signals a significant distance, and so maybe the Ionosphere is connected, in some way, to this special area, and hence the ability to receive radio transmissions from the other side of the world. This is what was getting at in my post regarding the GATE project being undertaken around Berchtesgaden - is there a specific reason that it is located in this area, especially as they simulate chages in the ionosphere in their tests.

You can also find details regarding NII on the website, which is in German, but an excellent overview (with great detail), about some of the Nazi buildings and facilities around this area.

Thank you. I guess the search function doesn't work perfectly.
I'll reread the thread from where I left it when I have the time.

It's an interesting subject, and I am now somewhat familiar with the area. But sadly I know very little about radio signals and such.

Thanks for the concise reply. I appreciate it!

Well, I feel entirely useless posting on this this thread as blueorb, vanitas, skyfloating and others have QUITE the grasp of things on here...I figured I'd share a vid that was recently shared here on ATS.
This vid is about the possible underground Dulce base in NM, BUT it gives a story that shows how there are other spots that lead to the center of the an underground corrupted highway of sorts.. *shrug*

This is to add entertainment value to this thread, and at the very least give some "what ifs". It's verrrrry out there but hey! This is ATS.

If you're borded check out all 12 vids, at the very least it's like reading an interesting sci-fi book with some occasional bad spelling/grammar.

Over a month since the last post! This cannot be allowed to happen!
Personally i have been a little busy with work, but i have been checking every day and trying to find a new avenue to open up of something to add to the story so far.....

And then suddenly, out of the blue, it happens.....

I was sitting at my desk yesterday, when a small parcel arrived. On the cover, was the logo of the "Landesverien fuer Hoehlenkunde Salzburg". It was book sized.....Surely, it couldn't be the Volume 1 of the series of cave books that i had attempted to buy on the internet from their website, and failed miserably? Surely, not the same book i then attempted to purchase from Amazon, only to find they didn't deliver to the UAE? And how could it be - after all, i hadn't paid for it!

Like a child at Christmas, i ripped the packaging to shreds, to reveal the contents.....sure enough, i am now the proud owner of Volume 1 "Salburger Hoehlenbuch" (Salzburg Book of Caves). The very same volume that features the Untersberg and all it's caves. I couldn't believe it, and couldn't stop smiling. Little things amuse little minds, i suppose.

Anyway, i've been skimming through it and i have to say it's a great book to have, especially for this forum matter. It details all of the 151 caves that had been explored at the time of printing, with lengths, descriptions, locations of entrances, and lots more information.

Also, it has a small folded map on the inside cover, which is a VERY nice touch, showing the entrances to all the caves (i.e the 151). So i photographed it, opened it in MS Paint and made the entrances red for clarity. Here it is:

It's a little large, but hopefully you will be able to see it in some form or another.

It came as a real eyeopener to me personally to see just how many cave entrances there are, and how dense they are in places.

I have highlighted two caves in yellow - The Nixloch in Hallthurm, as we have discussed it here, and also a cave called Gitschnerhoehle (aka Lazarus Gitschnerhoelhe), for obvious reasons. I don't believe this cave is anything to do with the legend itself, but suspect it was named after him by someone who explored the cave and knew about the legend.

I am sure i will pass on more information as i find it in the book - it's hard going as it's all in German and i have to find a quiet place to really take it in and understand, but it appears to be well worth the read - and the 44 Euro....erm....that is, if i had paid for it.....!

But fear not, i shall contact them and work out a way to get the money to them, but in the meantime, i shall be making full use of their "gift".

If anyone has any questions regarding caves, fire away, and hopefully i will be able to find some answers. I may even post the list of all the 151 caves in the near future - maybe the names will awaken a thought in someone.....although i am slightly disappointed that there is no mention of a cave called the "Eisernen Thur" or similar.

But on the other hand, that could also mean it is out there waiting to be rediscovered.......

It's good to be back here with something to say, and i hope to provide more info soon - whether you like it or not!!

PS : If you cannot see the whole picture, right-click and save the map, and you will be able to see everything and look a little closer....

Well done, well done Blue Orb.

Isn't it amazing how you have a desire or goal and it comes true!

Waiting patiently for your tidbits of sharing. Is it a large book? How many pages? Any additional photos? Does it tie in with the Churches and iron doors and legendary stories, or is it just about caves?

reply to post by Julie Washington

I don't have it with me at present, but it's over 200 pages, i think. It's a pure cave book, with full details and many plans of the caves, but it does have a small section regarding myths of the Untersberg, including things we have already touched on in this thread (the more popular myths). I am still going through it to see if i can come across something new.

There are a few pictures in it, which are both interesting and amusing, particularly a picture of an "expedition" setting off for some caves - it basically shows members of the Oedl family, with a cart full of ropes, etc. Very basic equipment, which i suppose was ll that was required back in the 1920s, which is when the photo is from. The Oedl family (or members of it), i think were at the forefront of the cave explorations at the start of the century (20th). What is interesting is that there was a flourish of activity at the turn of the century, and then ther mountain was virtually left alone until later, well after the Second World War.

This book, i think, includes details up to 1975, when the book was published, and so later expeditions, like the one that found the underground lake (also touched on earlier in this thread), are not included.

Once again, and on the same page (!), you have made up for my failures!


I had hoped the sliders would appear automatically, as i seem to have no idea how to make them appear in large pictures.....

I will post some details of the caves shortly, although i am still reading through all the information - there is a lot to take in.

One that immediately caught my eye was cave that is basically a shaft from the top of the mountain, 100m+ straight down.

It's no wonder people go missing with holes like that on the mountain.......

The scroll bars only appear if we use [‍img] instead of [‍atsimg].

Near the place where I live there's a small mountain that also has some cases of people that disappeared mysteriously, they are very dangerous areas.

It may. It happens all the time, you know. (With a book like that, I am sure you do know.
) Caves get discovered and then people somehow "lose" them again. And rediscover them again.

Anyway is there maybe a cave with some other "metallic" name?
I mean a name that could hint at some association with iron, even if it is remote?
Folklore toponymy can be very whimsical!

Sorry for the delay in posting – here are the names of the 151 caves that had been discovered / recorded on the Untersberg as of the date of publication of the Salzburger Hoehlenbouch, which was ……..1975! So not entirely up-to-date but better than nothing. The numbering relates to the map of the caves I posted a few posts earlier, and so you can cross reference them names to the map and see where the cave opening is on the mountain.

For those who do not speak German, and don’t want to spend hours trying to make even the slightest sense of these names, I will give you the following translations of common occurring words in the names. (I don’t want to teach anyone to suck eggs, as it were, but I would point out that generally, German names, nouns, etc are conjunctions i.e. one word is made up of two or more other words, for example Eishoehle = Ice Cave (Eis + Hoehle)

Hoehle / Hoehlen = Cave/Caves
Schacht / Scaechte – Shaft/Shafts
Loch / Loecher – Hole / Holes
Gross – Large
Klein – Small
Schnee - Snow
Eis - Ice
Mittag - Midday
Bei – Near to
Tal - Valley

I will probably add to this information with regard to specific caves, and give some details of length, depth, type etc, in due course.

Of these 151 caves, 93 are predominantly horizontal, and 58 predominantly vertical caves. 116 are in Austria, and 35 in Germany.

Of course, my source is the Salzburger Hoehlenbuch.....

That's impressive work you've done here!
Thanks for your time and effort.

I see there is at least one "hidden" shaft, just as one would expect; and I also see those who named them were typically creative oftentime.
(But Bibelforscherdoline?! Like, in Jehova Witnesses? Where did that come from?! Perhaps they used to meet there in the 1930s? )

Anyway, it doesn't matter, sorry for the excursion.
I see there is a Goldloch near the Mittagscharte. Anyone knows why it is called like that?

Names of caves are fascinating, and they can reveal a lot, so I am looking forward to have a better look at them when I can afford the time.

Excursion, day trip or pilgrimage, I'd like to know that, too.

But most of all, well done, Blue Orb!

This has surely grown into the most comprehensive thread - approaching an encyclopaedia - about the Untersberg online.

I hope White Eagle and other knowledgeable people - beside yourself - can keep it alive.

I'll be looking into the names of caves myself.
(But of course, locals' knowledge about the origins of their names is more than welcome!)
