during summer time possibility to visit the Icecaves and the Fortress Hohenwerfen
On this tour I pick you up in our comfortable panorama glass roof van and drive with you to the countryside. During the summer time (1st. May to 26th October) I drive directly to Werfen - a countryside village in the south of Salzburg. There you can visit the Ice caves with a cable car ride. After that visit to the ice caves (takes ca. 2, 5hrs) in the mountain you return to the city of Werfen and have a look at the fortress's falconry. The fortress itself is worth a visit and has a museum included. It is over 900 years old.
During winter time, when the caves are closed I offer you the saltmines in Hallein/Bad Dürrnberg instead. There you will walk at about 1, 5km within the mine and find a few adventures on your way (kids over 4 years).
Please note - the ice cave, the fortress and the saltmine have separate entrance fees. I will assist you and try to get a discount, but you have to take cash local money (euro) with you.

Bernd was a truly amazing guide. He was on time and really flexible with our days plan due to inclement weather. He was wonderful with our children and careful about the way he shared information about WWII- so the kids wouldn't be frightened. He took us to 2 additional sights (summer tobagoning-which was awesome) and a Sound of Music detour. He also recommended a lovey restaurant that was off the beaten path with only locals and had amazing food. I highly recommend. He has a true wealth of knowledge!!
