2 Caves to explore in Upper Austria
Upper Austria is Austria's leading industrial region. As of 2009, it accounted for approximately a quarter of the country's exports.
The Dachstein Ice cave lies high above the Trauntal valley and is just a few minutes’ walk away from the Schönbergalm. The ice is formed by water which seeps from the Dachstein plateau down into the cave through small cracks and joins in the cliff. It is one of the iconic attraction in this area and the ice with its fascinating, glistening shapes and figures, is immersed in light and music.
The Dachstein Mammoth Cave is located on the edge of the northern Dachstein Mountains above the municipality of Obertraun in close proximity to the Dachstein Giant Ice Cave and the Hirlatz Cave. This giant Mammut Cave is one of the largest karst caves in the world impresses with its size, variety of shapes and spectacular artistic installations – something you would never expect to see beneath the ground in Salzkammergut.
