  • This attraction is open to the public just a few years. It comes to tunnels that lead into the glacier where we can see beautiful ice formations and even an underground lake (35 m below the surface). After geologists confirmed that the glacier's structure is stable here, decided to allow tourists the tortuous way to worm their way inside. Have Waterproof footwear and rubber sole. Don't have claustrophobia! There are many flights of stairs. The helmet is provided at the box office and, believe me, is important. There is a boat ride on the Lake of icy waters, pretty cool! The time of the ride revolves around 40 minutes. THERE IS NO BATHROOM!

  • Just 0,5 km of walk over metal ladders and passing stairs with steps full of icy water and besides a few very impressive icicles nothing to see. "Boattrip" just exciting for claustrophic people. Not w...  more »
  • Really enjoyed the tour! incredible sensations. do you go somewhere inside the glacier, and people ride! Tour is in English. Skate helmets, so tours were in their. Skiers better take footwear, snowboarders and their boots. I believe that the cave is obligatory to visit!

  • 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.
  • 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!!
  • Not worth the money they asking for, minimal effort from the guide. Last year visited ice cave in Werfen - much better experience.
  • The glacier is melting! Take the picture in front of it until it's late :)
  • 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.
