Werfen Ice Caves, Werfen

3.8
Explore an extensive network of frozen tunnels and caverns at Werfen Ice Caves, the largest of their kind in the world. Stop by the formation and join a guided tour through the ice. You'll find as you venture into the depths that the drafts of air that cycle through the caves are the lifeblood of the entire freezing process, along with melting water that seeps underground. You'll see open spaces, imposing stalagmites, and dangling stalactites, including the centerpiece of the caves--a 23 m (75 ft) tall behemoth rising from the floor. The caves are very cold year-round, so dress warmly. Put Werfen Ice Caves and other Werfen attractions into our Werfen trip planner , and watch your holiday take shape.
