I was just looking at digital images from our trip to Germany last summer with our friends Bev and Dave, remembering what a fun trip it was. Our first time in Europe. What a great experience. We went to Austria for a couple of days, and visited the ice cave — Eisriesenwelt Werfen. This is an image looking out from the cave entrance (click the image to see it full-sized). No photography is allowed in the cave.
The cave is way up a mountain. You climb, then take a cable car, and then climb more. Here’s some footage from the cable car on our way down — check out the town down below to get an idea about how high up this is. And the cave is actually even higher up the mountain. I believe they said this is the steepest cable car ride in Europe. I believe it.
