Visit Werfen Castle and ice caves (Summer) OR Hohenwerfen Castle/salt mines in Hallein/Bad Dürrnberg (Winter& Summer).
On this tour, I pick you up in our comfortable panorama glass roof vehicle 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, visit the ice caves (takes ca. 2, 5 hours) in the mountain, you return to the village 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 salt mines in Hallein/Bad Dürrnberg instead. There you will walk about 1 mile to the mine and find a few adventures on your way (kids over 4 years).
Please note - the ice cave, the fortress and the salt mine have separate entrance fees. I will assist you and try to get a discount for you.
