Inspirock Rating:
3.8/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Werfen Ice Caves and other Werfen attractions using our handy Werfen itinerary builder.
