Biggest ice caves in the world

This was an amazing life experience. You do need to be in good shape to climb up, but it is so so so worth it. If you're in the area, don't skip it!!

Going to Eisriesenwelt Ice Cave on your own is like a little adventure. We took the train to Werfen Station and walk for about 15 minutes to a big open car park to wait for the private van to bring us to Eisriesenwelt. After paying for the entrance fees, we walk up towards the Ice caves, which took us nearly... More

Overall experience was really good. Way to the cave is really easy to find. We went with car to the ticket place from where there's a walkig part (approx. 20 minutes) to a cable car and then a little walk again to the entrance in to the cave. Really beautiful site. Every fourth person get an oil lamp and off... More

Very beautiful and unforgettable place. Don't forget to wear a warm clothes (!) Take to your account that in order to get there you have to walk for approx. 20 minutes, to take a cable car and then to walk again for approx.20 minutes. Unfortunately our tour guide (+-20 years old boy) was not nice and impolite, it was the... More

This is really an attraction that was really worth every step I have given. It is one of the most macnificent things that I have ever seen and has experienced. It is a long way up and reasonable pricy, but it is worth every sjieling. The history, pioneership and layout is absolute fantastic. Our tour was informative and very well... More

The tour lasted about 70 min. It was cold but very bearable. I wore a light jacket and jeans and was fine. There is no light in the cave and so they give you a lantern. There was a gondola ride and a 20 minute hike up to the cave. The cave itself was really cool although no pictures were... More

We got to Salzburg after spending time at Prague and Vienna. Castles, forts, palaces, museums - we'd done them all. There was nothing that quite prepared us for the Ice Caves - right from the picturesque 20 minute bus journey from Werfen, to the *whoooooooosh!* of the winds at the cave's entrance, to the 'hall' deep within the caves to...

Did I say wow? If you don't mind a hike for a reward, then you'll be fine here. The views on the hike and gondola ride up are superb. This is not for the feeble as it is a moderate hike up, then a gondola ride and then another strenuous hike to the mouth of the cave. Once inside, it... More

Everything with this excursion was just plain pain! Paying 20€ (!!!!!!!!) per person (!!) just to take a 2min cabine ride up the mountain (this is excluded the 40min walk) incl. the painful and somewhat boring mandatory guided tour inside a dark, icecold cave. To this all of us was already soaking wet from the walk of sweat and rain.... More

The cave in Werfen is well signposted and easy to get to. There is a large carpark and shuttle bus (unfortunately not free!) that will take you to the visitor centre incase your vehicle can't make the very steep windy road...I mean really steep in a couple of places! - Although on my visit there was a motorhome that made...
