Eisriesenwelt, Werfen

4.3
#4 of 223 in Nature in Austria
Explore an extensive network of frozen tunnels and caverns at Eisriesenwelt, the largest of their kind in the world. Stop by the formation and join a guided tour through the ice. You'll find as you venture into the depths that the drafts of air that cycle through the caves are the lifeblood of the entire freezing process, along with melting water that seeps underground. You'll see open spaces, imposing stalagmites, and dangling stalactites, including the centerpiece of the caves--a 23 m (75 ft) tall behemoth rising from the floor. The caves are very cold year-round, so dress warmly. Put Eisriesenwelt and other Werfen attractions into our Werfen trip planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • With a total length of 42 km, the ice giant world is considered to be the largest ice cave in the world. The trip to the ice cave was a complete success for all of us Opi and granddaughter. It's a physical challenge, but the view from above and the cave is worth it. We were on the road with baby - worked out perfectly. Warm clothes are important! The hike, the cable car ride and the ascent to the cave were already an experience – with the best view. In the cave there are many, steep steps and poor visibility - but all have succeeded.

  • Magic place! Great view of the Alps, track is not hard at all who looks for a big hike. Inside the cave is pretty cold, around 0 degrees for an approximately 1,5 hours experience inside, be ready for that even on hot summer day. Plan this trip for minimum of 4 hours return. 5/5 🏔 🇦🇹
  • Really cool! Very unique experience. The view from outside the cave was also stunning!
