Very easy to get to, there is a ferry that runs regularly across the lake from the train station. A beautiful town, I recommend renting a boat out, very cheap.

The Ice Cave is open from 29 April until 29 October 2017. I think it is closed now due to weather condition Yes, you need cable car to get there, no matter what.
