Explore an extensive network of frozen tunnels and caverns at Eisriesenwelt, 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 Eisriesenwelt and other Werfen attractions into our Werfen trip planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

In the cave there are many, steep steps and poor visibility - but all have succeeded.
Reachable first by car to the ticket building. Then by walking to the cable car that will bring you to a restaurant then another 20 minutes walk to the entrance. Entrance fee is € 24 per person includ... more »
Magic place! Great view of the Alps, track is not hard at all who looks for a big hike. Inside the cave is pretty cold, around 0 degrees for an approximately 1,5 hours experience inside, be ready for that even on hot summer day. Plan this trip for minimum of 4 hours return. 5/5 🏔 🇦🇹
Really cool! Very unique experience. The view from outside the cave was also stunning!
