Create an itinerary including Eisriesenwelt
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.

  • Amazing experience to see the a piece of the massive ice filled cave system! Please take appropriate clothing with you! (I can recommend gloves). Our guide was great at telling the story of the cave, and was keen on answering questions we had. Make sure you are fit! There are a lot of steps to take in there.
  • Take the cable car up, the alternative hike is very dangerous. The cave is amazing to see, you will Explore it in the dark with oil lanterns to guide you. Worth the experience but go early because it can get quite busy.
