The Eisriesenwelt or the largest ice caves in the world are a sight to behold. They are as breath-taking as they sound and are well worth your time when in Austria. These majestic caves were first found out by Anton Posselt, a natural scientist from Salzburg, in 1879, and since then the caves have not faltered in enticing the spectators with their undeniable beauty. The distinguished beauty of the place is attributed to the stunning natural ice formations in the cave which have been formed as a result of the freezing of the inflowing water into exemplary figures. To top it all, the formations are often highlighted with magnesium lighting.
