  • It costs around 20 euros you have to wear a helmet and be prepared to climb up and down ladders inside the glacier. Often just spoken in German with occasional English. Worth doing once but not repeat...  more »
  • The Ice Palace is right at the very top of the Hintertux Glacier which itself is definately worth a visit. The Ice Palace however is a giant let down. Surprisingly this was recommended by other people...  more »

  • Awesome tour inside the Gletscher. You can also do this tour with your ski boots.
  • A beautiful tour through a thousand year old glacier. You will see amazing ice formations. The tour also offers a boat tour on top of an 30m deep lake inside the glacier. Beware: you will need to be in a food shape to complete the tour, since you will have to climb multiple ladders and walk up steep slopes, all at > 3000m altitude, where you will quickly run out of breath due to the thin air.
  • Not worth 21 EUR; generally ok. went there when it was to foggy to ski; Only boat was nice (5min long) and maybe two places with ice needles. Guide did minimal effort. The cave is nearby the top. You have to walk down the slope. If it snows a lot be prepared for a short but hard approach in the end.
  • Not worth the money they asking for, minimal effort from the guide. Last year visited ice cave in Werfen - much better experience.
  • Worth doing but not for the faint hearted. Wobbly ladders and icy floors (which are to be expected!). They say it can be done in ski boots but I wouldn't recommend it. Would be expensive to get there without a ski pass. But beautiful and worth doing if you're up there. Personally I wouldn't bother with the boat trip option - five minutes in a rubber dinghy is not value for money. Stick to the basic standard tour, you see the same thing without having to get in the dinghy! Could upset those with claustrophobic tendencies!!
