Up in a cable car, high into the mountains, where a long path through the snow leads to the world's biggest ice-caves, Eisriesenwelt (no photography). Deep inside the mountain, limestone caves allow water to percolate through - dripping slowly into the sub-zero caves and freezing in the most amazing shapes resembling animals, as well as great columns, of fused stalactytes/mites, made entirely of ice. Sadly they very stictly enforce the no photography rule in the cave, so if you want to see what we saw, look at some of the on-line photos in places such as this.
