Giant Ice World
Another highlight, a short 40 minute drive into the town of Werfen, are the world's largest ice caves with an incredible total length of 42 kilometers - the Giant Ice World. Cold air masses flow into the cave in winter. Due to rising temperatures in the spring, the ice begins to melt, making the water seep into the cave, where it freezes. This and other complex processes create the enormous, stunning ice formations - the "Ice Giants."
