  Entrance to Eisreisenwelt in Tennengeberge cliffs
by mtncorg

ust 50 minutes south of Salzburg, near the town of Werfen, are the largest accessible ice caves of the World - the Eisreisenwelt - World of the Ice Giants. To get to the caves is a little adventure in itself. From a car park on high (Minibuses do go up from Werfen below, too), you walk about 15 minutes to a cable car. From the upper station, another 15 minute walk takes you to the entrance of the caves. There is a 75 minute tour which visits formations and large caverns. You only visit 1/50th of the cave - there are over 42 km of passages which have been explored. Take warm clothes with you. These are ice caves, afterall:-]
