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.

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
