The world of giant glacial caves: Werfen

The largest glacial cave in the world

The so-called "Eisriesenwelt" ("giant ice world") in Werfen is a labyrinth of caves, with a total length of more than 40 kilometres; almost the entire guided path is covered in ice.

Lighting is provided as it was one hundred years ago: using carbide lamps, which are distributed among the visitors. Astounding ice figures are illuminated by the cave guides with bright magnesium lights.

Especial care has always been taken to preserve the environment of this miracle in the way nature intended it to be.
