  • Amazing experience. It was underground lake. It was very cold there. Guided tour was very informative. Boat ride was also nice.
  • Largest underground lake in Europe. Tour itself was very educational, with the guide proficient in both German and English. Treated to a history of the former mine turned tourist attraction, plus a boat ride in the middle of an underground lake with crystal clear waters with a blueish tint due to the minerals. A great alternative to the castles and palaces in Vienna although the tour price of 11 euros was a little bit pricey in my opinion. Opening hours vary throughout the year so do check before heading over.
  • Reasonably priced at 11 euros, the Seegrotte was definitely worth the trip if you are taking a day trip to Mödling from Vienna. A 20-30 minute walk away from the town, the tour took you to the underground mine and largest underground sea in Europe. The tour guide was well versed in English and German and gave us an insight into what the caves were used for during WWII. The tour included a short boat ride around the cave and lasted about 45 minutes. Well worth your time to drop by and visit.
  • A beautiful underground lack and aircraft factory from WWII you can reach there by taking a bus 262 from Mödling station It cost 11€ for a nice tour inside Keep some coins in pocket for the boat guy
  • Tours in Seegrotte are guided and scheduled. It is better to buy tickets immediately upon arriving because one tour can only accommodate a few people. It is better to go early just to be sure. It gets cold inside, so make sure to dress for the sub-zero temperature. For a WW2 enthusiast, the tour was really enjoyable, although not as informative as I expected.
