Eisriesenwelt Ice Cave, Werfen

4.1
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.
