Ice Caves "Eisriesenwelt"
A natural wonder and one of the best excursions in the Salzburg area. Discover the worlds' largest ice caverns and ice figures at the Eisriesenwelt. Even from a distance the massive 20 m high and 18 m wide entrance can be seen. The cave system stretches over 42 km, 1km is covered in ice. This part of the cave is accessible to the public.
The visit consists of a 20 minute walk from the car park to the cable car followed by another 20 minutes walk to the cave entance and finally a 75 minute tour trough the cave. During the tour 134m altitude have to be overcome. Therefore the excursion is somewhat strenuous! The beauty of the ice figures and the sheer size of the caves are totally worth it!
