Beware, if your knees are not fit then this place is not for you.You have to face steep uphill walk for about kilo meter and then challenge 600 plus steep steps inside the cave. Yes, inside the ice formation is great!

Nature is fantastic, thumbs up to Sustrian authorities on preserving it together with a high sense of safety and cleaniness. Not enough info in English. Tourists must be informed on physical effort required in visiting the ice cave. Costly visit !
