German term or phrase: Nebel- und Bärenhöhle
Seems to be caves near Lichtenstein Castle. I would translate the latter as bear cave but not sure about Nebelhöhle. Or should I leave the name and provide an explanation instead?

Explanation:
These two caves are located on Suabian Alb or highland area. For explanation I would use Bear's Cave and Misty Cave, but other than that I would leave the German.

I would leave the name and explain


Explanation:
bear cave sounds ok to me for an explanation, mist cave maybe for Nebelhoehle,, but it would be more interesting to see, where these caves
got there name from. Maybe your client
can supply this info.

Explanation:
I wanted to add that this Lichtenstein Castle is near Reutlingen, on the Swabian Alb, rather than the country. My goodness - you're going to know Baden Wurttemberg like the back of your hand after this translation!
