It was spontaneous devotion, but the trip was great. It is really cold inside and since you are moving slowly be prepared. It's interesting and we had fun. I suggest you to visit the castle in Werfen while you are there.

I took a private tour minibus from Salzburg, which cost about €80, but it was well worth it to be picked up from the hotel and taken directly to the cave ticket office. The driver then waited to pick us up afterwards and return us...More

We had an amazing time hiking, exploring and learning about the ice cave. It was a bit of a drizzly day, but we still enjoyed it. Most of the hike up is under a roof or through a tunnel, if needed. The funicular ride up...More

Nature has made an amazing sight, but it is no place for scared young children. Our guided trip of maybe 30- 40 German and English speaking tourists, had only one guide, so that when this little family was left behind with only one hand lit...More

Sometimes it's better to not know what you are getting in to until after you pay. I imagine if my husband had known or realized about the two 20 minute uphill hikes and the funicular ride up to the cave and then 700 steps up...More
