Cave admission costs 12 EUR, which includes a 70-min guided tour in English or German, and cable car costs 12 EUR. The cable car saves you 1.5 hours of walking (uphill). Since it takes 40 min to walk from the car park to the cave...More

It was spontaneous devotion, but the trip was great. It is really cold inside and since you are moving slowly be prepared. It's interesting and we had fun. I suggest you to visit the castle in Werfen while you are there.

I took a private tour minibus from Salzburg, which cost about €80, but it was well worth it to be picked up from the hotel and taken directly to the cave ticket office. The driver then waited to pick us up afterwards and return us...More
