  • 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!

  • The short hike through the Ice Palace was very interesting. Please good boots and thick jackets attract.

  • Tour of the Ice Cave and we can recommend it to anyone who visits the Hintertux glacier. For those who come to skate, the cave can be visited in a day of rest (done that), or during a break in the day. The second is less convenient, so how will the ski or snowboard boots to climb stairs and walk on the ice, which for convenience in many places with rubber mats, but not everywhere. For those who just come take a walk in the mountains, visiting caves are well combined with the rise of the observation deck, which is located on the roof of the station of the Glacier bus 3. With a height of 3250 offers stunning views and elevation here is actually an excursion to the fantastic beauty of the Austrian Alps. That would combine business with pleasure, it is better to choose a bright, clear day. To visit the caves only weather doesn't matter, the main thing that operated the ropeway.

  • 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!!
  • 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.
  • I liked this place. A lot. It is a bit difficult to visit this place in ski boots but still worth it.
  • Fascinating to be able to wonder in the inside of a glacier! Unique experience. The guid was not talking/explaining much and his english hard to understand. Very expensive since you need to get up there first but combined with some walking in the are it is defiantly worth it.
