We travelled to Werfen directly from Hallstatt. Austria has to be the most beautiful country I've visited. Be prepared to do a lot of walking. It can be quite strenous at times but well worth it. We took our time going up. I tried to...More

The hike isn't too bad - it's steep and you have to walk across one bridge. But you don't need to be a regular hiker to do it. Also I'm afraid of heights and managed it. The scariest bit is around the top of the...More

This is a fascinating place. Well worth the steep and winding drive up, the walking to the cave, and the hundreds of steps once you're inside it. Do take gloves because, not surprisingly, you can get veeeeery coooold!

I visited here with my son and would thoroughly recommend. The trip up to the cave involves 2 fairly strenuous uphill walks, but there are plenty of opportunities to rest and enjoy the view. The steps inside are quite hard work also, so make sure...More

A reasonably long uphill walk that is at a reasonable angle to the cable car ride which gives fantastic views. After the cable car ride there is another 20-30 min walk uphill to the cave entrance. Again a reasonable angle. The actual ice caves are...More

Hi Corinne. The ice cave is closed in October because there is too much snow. Are you planning on being in Austria for the holidays? Great skiing and beautiful scenery.
