Be prepared to climb many steps! But the ice makes it all worthwhile. Bring warm clothes cuz it get quite chilly inside the cave. There is also a bit of walking before you get to the cave so reasonable level of fitness is required. No...More

First, the climb! It is 3,500 ft up and you feel every step lol but it’s so worth it! My 5 year old did it as well as my 15 year old twins. The views were magnificent. You can take the gondola (of course I...More

Before travelling to this ice cave, I read the reviews on Trip Advisor. I found a few of the negative ones misleading, so I will try to be as objective as possible. First of all, it is true that there is a lot of uphill...More

The cave and the ice is absolutely mesmerising and huge and its is very worth visiting. This being said, the management of the cave makes it very hard to give it even one star. In excuse for "authentic" experience, the cave isn't lit by any...More

During my vacation to the area, I picked Esiriesenwelt Ice Cave as an day outing for me. Staying in the near by village of St. Johann Im Pongau, it was a simple two stop train ride to Werfen. At the train station or Bahnhof a...More
