This is an essential day trip from Salzburg. It´s extremely easy to get a train to Werfen from Salzburg Hauptbahnhof. A bus stop literally outside the train station then takes you at the start of this awe-inspring trip.
The short, but strenuous, walk up to the cable is worth the trip in itself. It offers fantastic views of a quintessential Austrian valley town.
The ice formations in the the cave simply need to be seen.
The ice cave tour is extremely well executed - the tour guides tell you just enough and let the natural beauties on show speak for themselves. The entire place is treated with nothing but respect, and the inclusion of open flame mining lamps make you feel like a genuine explorer despite the throngs of people with you. Even the the ban on photography helps make this place feel even more special, although I have to admit I couldn´t resist taking a few shots.
To top it all off, the cafe at the top of the cable car is kindly priced and the perfect spot for a post-adventure beer.
