there are several ice caves in the area and I was uncertain which ones to visit, but I was so glad we did not miss this one. The combination of gondola ride, hiking and stair climbing makes the journey to the caves part of the...More

The ice cave is a really interesting and dramatic experience. Getting to it is an adventure in itself, in our case including a train, bus, walk and cable car. The cave is large with 700 steps, but well worth it with helpful guide. We enjoyed...More

The cave is totally dark and lit by small lanterns carried by visitors. The guide shows the most important ice formations with his lantern, but because it's so dark you don't really see that much especially because you have to focus on climbing stairs and...More

There's plenty of parking, though it does fill up fast and you may have to walk further. It's a 20 min hard walk from the entrance booth to the cable car, then a further 20 min walk to the cave entrance. It was steep and...More

40 minutes of steep walking and then more than 1000 stairs in the cave. BUT it is wonderful! Unfortunately, it is not allowed to take pictures inside the cave.

If you havent been to Austria, or Salzburg, this is definitely recommended, though it will take almost an entire day from Salzburg. For us, the journey was as exciting as the destination. Sure, the photos on their website have been light enhanced, which is necessary,...More

Well...went there for the first time and have to say, it was a bit of a disappointment. Bottom line is that the photos provided on their website and Facebook are amazing...vibrant colors and amazing natural ice wonders. The reality is that the actual tour (700...More

Went here not really knowing what to expect, although the reviews pretty much let you know that there is work involved in seeing the attraction. I liked the differing ways you had to experience getting to the cave itself. First the drive is narrow and...More

Hi I was wondering if people can go to the Eisriesenwelt ice caves during december? Or if there are any other ice caves that you can visit in December? In addition, are there any places for dog sledding in Austria?

Hi Elizabeth...I just checked the Eisriesenwelt website and they are only open from 01 May t0 29 October...closed over winter. I can see why it's closed in the winter...the small road leading up the mountain would have to be... More
If taking public transport from Salzburg is it possible to see Hallein salt mine, Hohenwerfen fortress and Eisriesenwelt ice cave in same day? Do buses run between sites? Thank you Erin

Most likely not. Even in a car you'd have a tough time seeing all three in one day. Pick one and focus on that. IMHO given your limited time, I'd try to see Hohenwerfen castle.
Ciao! Posso chiederti come raggiungere le grotte con i mezzi (treno) da milano?
