The ones catch fish; the others only trouble the water.  
Dates of events can be put into the programme by all members and guests. We have short-term and long-term dates, e. g. annual slide-shows, one autumn walk and bus tours. Our slogan “This calling means: cave.” is well known and often used.  
14 times „g“ – means approximately „Go together – against lack of ideas“ (Genaugenommen genügen gesellige Grubengänge gegen gewöhnliche Gleichgültigkeit. RHW. 1. 12. 1998)  
We have many slide shows, especially about the following topics:  
Insteresting beauties in Romanian caves  
With more than 12.000 caves, Romania has one of the front places in Europe. Speleology has a long tradition there. Members of the Cave Research Group of Dresden visited Romania often and took many very interesting photos of the country, people, and under ground.  
Salzburg – Between Mozart House and Cave „Eisriesenwelt“  
The modern and historic sights of Salzburg are visited, followed by slides shot during an expedition in the alps. The pictures from a visit in the more than 42 km long, ice show cave, the „Eisriesenwelt“ in the mountains named „Tennengebirge,” are most impressive.  
With Cavers of Dresden into the Underground of Bulgaria  
There is a world of miracles: we have trips by rubber dinghy into a world of dripstones, bivouacs of cavers, and travel around the Rhodopes.  
Hungary – Between Budapest and the Underground World of this Country  
Cavers trips and speleological congresses provide the opportunities, to see the “bright” and the “dark” part of Hungary. Many slides show a colourful picture of different landscapes, including the hot job of charcoal burners in the buekk-mountains, and of some newly discovered caves under the capital…  
DRESDEN – Old City with a New Face  
This slide show is a surprise for guests and residents. It shows many historical objects in an amusing and informative way. It shows the development of Dresden from the Middle Ages until now.  
The show can be combined with a part “Saxon Switzerland,” an impressive sandstone area near Dresden.  
In Caves and Mountains of Bohemia and Slovakia  
A neighbouring country with sandstone caves, limestone caves near Prague and the separated Slovakia, where there are the most important caves with stalactites and stalagmites. The centre is the area („Maehrischer Karst /Moravsky kras“) with big showcaves nearby Bruenn (Brno).  
Those people, who never have time, do little. (G. C. Lichtenberg)  
Guided Tours  
The most famous speleological guided tour has been the “RUSCHER-Wanderung” for more than 25 years. It is dedicated to the founder of the oldest speloelogical association in Saxony. The date is annually in May.  
In addition we offer individual tours into caves, to the table mountains of Saxon Switzerland (walking, climbing), and tours concerning the geology of Saxony.  
Who searches for pearls, must climb into the deep.
Approximately 40 times a year, the Cave Research Group sponsors excursions to search, document, study, and become acqainted with caves. Everybody can have free time together with us...  
The human being needs caves, common caves.
(Johann Gottfried Herder)
Bus tours  
Since the reunification of Germany the publisher DER HÖHLENFORSCHER has arranged bus tours (with walks) into interesting caves and landscapes in different parts of Europe. One of the dates of a “scientific tour” is a 4-day-period near Ascension Day.  
Please ask for an invitation.  
The contemplation of the the organisation of nature deep into the crust of earth is in general a cosmological view that is certainly not uninteresting.
(Alexander von Humboldt 1797)
Since 1968, cavers of the Cave Research Group of Dresden have spent a part of their holiday together in an area of caves of our earth. We found wonderful targets: e. g. in Bulgaria, Hungary, Slovenia, Ireland, Scottland, and South Africa.  
It is helpful for you to make an early application for these programmes.  
Sometimes giants are trained in gnome schools.
(RHW. 09. 08. 2000)
We offer our material and training courses on speleology in Saxon evening schools (called VHS), which is a long tradition in Saxony.  
True cavers are better in a front position than being day-dreamers who only react.
(RHW. 10/1995)
Cave rescue  
Accidents in Saxon caves are relatively rare. In the case of an accident, the assistance of other cavers is the first step to first aid. There are some “Cave rescue teams” outside Saxony that work together with the local professional rescue teams as fire and rescue brigades.
In the case of an accident in a cave, do not hesitate to phone Cave Research Group Dresden as well.
