(600+ reviews on the web)
Cave
Take a breath of fresh air at the world's largest ice cave, Eisriesenwelt Ice Cave, penetrating 42 km (26 mi) into the Alp mountains, 1,656 m (5,433 ft) above sea level. Book a guided tour, and walk through tunnels and labyrinths of limestone covered in thick layers ice. The ice never melts due to chilling winds blowing from deep inside the cave's chambers. The guide will hand you a lamp at the entrance so you can explore the ice formations, some of which are more than 20 m (65 ft) tall. Dress warmly--the temperatures are almost constantly below freezing. Add Eisriesenwelt Ice Cave to your Werfen travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Werfen tour planner.

  • A totally unique experience, we were first team and thus very fortunate, we were allowed to take videos and pictures, about the first 20 minutes, when the next team was on the road was the end, but we got great shots with gaiden who keeps his lyskaster, very beautiful with istapperne etc. We can only recommend this experience, requires good legs warm clothes and trekking boots, much like a penlight and a pair of gloves because the banister is very cold (iron), everyone should try this tour, has never seen anything like it, Go ride and take the right and visit where Eagles dare also;-) Greeting Dorthe and Bjorn Stevns Denmark Nb! when the right date does not exist, we have to take may 2016 we there was 01-05-2011 at 9-45
