The world of giant glaciers Eisriesenwelt.

The tour from Salzburg to the most significant Ice Cave in the world.


The world of giant glaciers Eisriesenwelt.  The tour from Salzburg to the biggest Ice Cave in the world.


Eisriesenwelt is a system of substantially interconnected caves stretching through the bowels of the mountains for 42 kilometers. The areas closest to the surface are covered with centuries-old ice formations constantly growing and changing their shape. 

The cave was discovered by the Austrian naturalist speleologist Anton Posselt in 1879. Subsequent explorers moved kilometers deep into the mountain, spreading afterward the fame of giant glaciers far beyond Austria. By the middle of the 20th century, municipal authorities with private investors built a cable car, making the unique natural attraction publicly accessible.
