Discovering the ice cave ‘Eisriesenwelt’ at Werfen

Cycling day 2 – From Salzburg to Bischoshofen (40 km)

This morning I left Salzburg at the home of my friends and followed the EuroVelo 7 along the river Salzach which was great. So at the small town of Golling I took the train as it was recommended in my guide book because of the traffic on a narrow road for just 15 minutes.

I arrived in Werfen and took a bus to reach the valley station of the cable-car. After that you’ve had to walk another 20 minutes to reach the entrance of the ice cave.

In the cave it was not allowed to take pictures as the guide would have to wait all the time – so there are perfect pics on Facebook.

If you want to make this visit you need about 4 hours and a warm suit – there are only 0 Degrees C – as there is ice 😉

The ice cave ‘Eisriesenwelt’

After being back to my bike I cycled only a few kilometers, set up my tent, cooked a meal – and it started to rain like cats and dogs – but fortunately on this campingsite you’ve got a big tent with chairs where you can enjoy a beer or pizza – and WiFi 😁
