Worth it as the car said 30c at the bottom. Take the shortcut through the tunnel on the way up and around the outside on the way down (when you are cooler). Guides are good and don't just read of a script (Nottingham cave :-{) Hang back a bit and you can get the place in the dark which is... More

The ice cave is one of the most beautiful places in Austria. Located around 35km from Salzburg. The cost was 66 euro for my family including the cable car. But be aware as you should be healthy and fit to go for this beautiful attraction as you should walk for a distance to reach the cave. You should take a... More

Amazing! It is a hard 20 minute walk, cable car (or hard 90 minute walk) and then another hard 20 minute walk and then once your in... An hour more walking up 700 and steps and back down! But so worth it! Truly stunning views inside the caves and outside. It is cold in there and there is a really... More

The trip to see the Eisriesenwelt is totally worthy. You will be allowed to visit the first kilometer of the 42 kilometers which make it the largest ice cave in the world. It will take you around 3 hours to complete the tour (one way up is around 45 min, the visit to the cave takes 1 hour plus 45... More

Eisreisenwelt is a fascinating place. Yes, there is climbing to do, but average condition is sufficient. Our 5 and 9 years old kids managed that well. We were given lamps with living fire that increased excitement for the kids. Part of the fun was that we got a good guide. Only drawback was 45 minutes waiting for the gondole.

This was the most memorable time of our visit to Austria and a real must do if you are physically able to do it. There is amble parking depending on the time you arrive will depend on how far you have to walk to the ticket office. Strolling to the ticket office is the beginning of your adventure as you...

This place is really special. A phenomenal location, there's a 5km drive up the mountain just to get to the ticket office. After that, there's a 15 minute trek on foot, a steep assent in a cable car, and finally one last 20 minute hike to the entrance of the cave. With this in mind, I wouldn't recommend this attraction... More

From the moment that we approached the atraction entrance by a special shuttle (all 4 levels of parking were full) we were amazed from the magnificent observation spots. The entire Werfen charming town was laid in the valley below including the impressive Hohen castle. We had a lovely walk of about 20 minutes up to the cable car including a... More

In a 2 week, 3000 mile driving vacation this was one of the coolest experiences we had! The trek and visit are physically demanding, but if you're able it is absolutely worth it. We were able to manage it with a 5 and 7 year old, so it's doable, but just be prepared for a hike. The air is a... More

Just the walk from the parking lot to the ticket booth will get your heart pumping. Then you have a long hike to the gondola up and again to the entrance of the cave. Then inside the cave there are 700+ stairs up and another 700 down. This is not for people who are not in good health. I was... More
