Förderverein Nürnberger Felsengänge e.V., the Association of Friends of the Nuremberg Rock Cellars, was founded by committed citizens in July 1994. The nonprofit organization’s aim is to further explore the historic caverns under the Castle Hill, and to preserve them and open them to the public.
The association performs a number of other tasks besides conducting public tours:
- Documenting the underground chambers
- Organizing lectures and exhibitions
- Providing repairs and maintenance to preserve other parts of the site that are worthy of conservation
- Publishing research articles and plans on local history, including in collaboration with other associations and institutions
