How to go to Dachstein Caves;
There's a direct train ride from Vienna and Salzburg and 2 bus transfer from Salzburg. What I did was I used train transpo when going there and going back is bus. Travel time from train is around 1.5 hr while in a bus is around more than 2 hours but bus fare is relatively cheaper than train fare. Dachstein combo ticket for Ice and Mammoth Caves costs 34 Euro including roundtrip cable car ride and scheduled guide tours. Free wifi at the entrance above and souvenir items are available. Please take note of the information provided at the Schonbergalm - here you need to register and obtain tour number.
