  • Your guide takes you 45 km south of Salzburg after an hour drive will reach Ice Caves mountain at Werfen village
  • The cave system is over 40 km in length, at present only the first kilometre accessible for visitors and only this section had the glacial formations. The grandeur of Eisriesenwelt makes it a top sightseeing destination in Salzburg state. With stunning scenery from its hiking trail, huge halls, narrow recesses, gigantic sized icy sculptures, small ice curtains, and light effects, the ice caves are very unique in all respects.

    In the caves temperature remains below freezing, proper shoes, warm clothes and gloves are recommended. Please also take note that within the ice caves you have to go up and down 134m. The experience of this miracle of nature will reward the effort. Persons with serious walking difficulties or heart and circulation problems are asked not to enter the caves. It is also not suitable for small children below 4 years of age.

  • After the ice caves we will visit the fortress Hohenwerfen, giving great views up and down the valley. This fortress has been used as a movie set (e.g. the 1968 film Where Eagles Dare). Today it houses weapons, various special exhibitions, the first Austrian Falconry Museum. At the historic Falconry Centre there are daily flight demonstrations giving a Birds of Prey show.
  • Then we return to Salzburg and you will be dropped off near Mirabel Gardens.
