  • 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 »
  • Even class as you can make money. You pay one how you only later can determine very lush price and is then pulled through the cave system without what to understand. The leadership is silent, incomprehensible and setting out anything and anyone. The thing is a rip off in its purest form. Photographing costs extra! Please the charge do not pay because the leader eh can't tell who has paid and who is not. Which is anyway doesn't matter. 30 people every hour and well. You have no time to enjoy because you get nowhere what with the perhaps beautiful Ice Palace. Only the unbearably kitschy decoration (e.g.,). A skeleton) is incredibly unpleasant... As I said. It is funneled through and good. What a pity. The Ice Palace is really great. It was here the Grand opportunity missed to present something really nice. Instead, ripped off the visitors. What a pity

  • We participated in the 11:30 tour and had to pay because at the moment there is no tour the standard, instead of €16 now admission € 21. To take photos, we had to pay again €5 as a "donation". At the beginning of the tour, it went down a steep hill. We were glad that we were travelling with hiking boots, because the skier among us had light problems during the descent, as well as on the ladders in the cave. Our group was very large so we were constantly stopped to hurry. So not there was much time to look at. The declarations of the guide you overheard therefore unfortunately also not much. The natural ice Palace itself is definitely worth a visit. A short highlight was the boat trip in the glacier, which represents the end of the approximately one-hour tour.

  • 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.
