"Werfen Ice Caves" Ice Caves Tip by Ladymarian1

Ice Caves, Salzburg: 12 reviews and 19 photos

A place to avoid unless you are extremely fit. It is up a cliff face with sheer drops and at an altitude of 5628 ft - Jungfrau in Switzerland is 3120 ft and is reached by a railway. Within the ascent you have 2 x 20 minutes walk and then the ice caves. Cable cars looked small. Not to be recommended for anyone with health problems i.e. asthmatic, diabetic, arthritis etc. Website tends to gloss over the real dangers. Looking at it I would imagine that getting medical assistance could be difficult.

Directions: The Eisriesenwelt can be reached on the Tauern motorway (A10), on the trunk road from Salzburg or by train. From the train station you can take a bus up to the car park situated at an altitude of 1,00
