This tour is definitely not for everyone. You need to be in good physical health and please don't bring your baby or dog. When we were coming out, a dog was howling in fear, it was extremely painful to bear! Bring warm clothes and good shoes because the temperature gets you as soon as you walk in. There is a... More

They say "no pain no gain"...so in order to experience something so enchanting some efforts have to be made. Yes you need to walk a lot,sweat a bit, climb uphill but when you are up there every bit of that effort seems worth it. Pack yourselves some warm clothes and steady shoes, no matter how warm it is outside you'll... More

Got to car park at 08:45 and consequently could park at the steps to the ticket office. When we were leaving, at 12 noon approximately, people were parking up 3/4 of a mile away; so get there early to avoid queues! Adult ticket was €22. Walked 15 mins to cable car, got second cable car of the day up the... More

Po zakoupení vstupenky si lze cestu ulehčit lanovkou a pak je nutné dojít až k jeskyním, ale cesta není až tak obtížná pro zdravého člověka. Návštěva jeskyň za to opravdu stojí! Skupiny jsou dělené na německy a anglicky mluvící a jsou docela velké - občas bylo průvodce špatně slyšet. Ale snažil se a nás vzadu se neopomenul zeptat, jestli máme... More

Being prepared is half the battle won. Having read the reviews on TA we were better prepared on what to expect, we split the ride up (to get much needed rest) and came back very satisfied that we did visit this amazing natural beauty. Add let me add that we are not even moderately fit. But the will power to... More

I completed this journey seven months pregnant with my husband carrying out young daughter in a pack. It was a hit day and the trek up to the cave was testing but I feel it was well worth it for the opportunity of being inside such a unique cave. When the doors first opened I was nervous that it would... More

Worth going to but you must be in shape. It's a 20 minute walk from parking lot to the lift then there is another 20 minute walk mostly uphill to the ice cave. Once your at the Ice cave the tour is 700 steps up and 700 steps down. It was tough but we did it

Steep and long walk to the caves which I did not expect. Overly tired once you get there and once inside you have to wait often quite long for the next tour in English. Every fourth person gets a lantern and then you start with the steps upwards. It is steep and gets very tiring. Our guide would stop every... More

We tend to be "adventure-type" travelers, and this was by far the highlight of our trip. Our alarm went off at 4:15am in Salzburg, but the early wake up was totally worth it. We took the one hour train south to Werfen, and then walked the 5 minutes to the parking lot meeting place for the 7am bus up the... More

We visited the ice cave using just public transport. It takes close to an hour from Salzburg city. Once you reach Werfen station, there's a bus which takes you to the base via another bus station. The sad part part is that these buses from station to the base is there only every 2 hours starting from 8 18 am.... More
