It is not very expensive I forget the cost as it was a long time ago. it is best to wear your own ski helmet as the hired ones are a bit naff. be prepared to climb down steep ladders which in ski boots is harder than you think and the glacier floor is slippery of course. Good to see... More

This attraction is unlikely to be the most thrilling thing you've ever experienced but nevertheless offers a unique & interesting diversion from skiing & can be easily incorporated into your ski day with tours available between 10.30am & 4.30 pm, plus it can be done in ski boots. Tours are also offered in summer. It takes you into the glacier,... More

This experience at the Ice Palace at the top of the Glacier at HIntertux,Austria was really unique and different. It costs 16 euros for an hour tour with a guide climbing through caves and up ladders throughout the experience. It is beautiful and quite a good workout so dress accordingly with proper shoes etc. You wear a hard hat so... More

Visited in the depths of winter. Wonderful scenes inside the glacier. Very high altitude so breathing can be a bit hard as walking in the glacier is not easy. As a pedestrian the toll on the cable cars to the top was rather expensive so I've only done it once in the times I've visited the area.

I visited with my teenage daughter in Summer. As others have said it was slippery and be prepared for the cold, especially if you go in Summer. The ice cave is an interesting phenomenon found under the glacier. There was a nice ice formation and some illuminated small caves and sink holes with water (underground lake would be exaggerating) but... More

We read the reviews on tripadvisor before the time and were thus warned that we might get a poor guide, but decided to try it anyway as guides might change and because coming from South-Africa we do not have the opportunity to see the inside of glaciers often ;-) We had a friendly guide, who did do a head count...

Big mistake, should have read reviews before buying tickets. Sounded like great adventure for family (ages 11-68). Only pricey grand tour available , talked with guide about to expect_-----she was eager to take our money & kept saying "no problems, you will do fine". First clue to problems----steep 200 meter descent on icy ski slope---but, of course, no skis. Only... More

We enjoyed the visit to the Ice Palace, with a couple of exceptions. First and foremost, we thought that the guide was very poor. Like previous reviewers, we were surprised that no headcount was taken going or out. The day we visited, the cloud was down so visibility was very poor. When we exited from the ice palace, it was...

First of all it was to say the least over priced.....we only had the option of the Grand Tour so had to pay 16 Euros each plus 8 Euros for a child . The alleged 'guide' when he showed up did no introduction, did not do any check that people were suitably equipped not even a basic head count. He... More

Went here with great expectations - after all, a walk through a Glacier! First problem was that only the longer more expensive tour was available. Second problem was that there were no helmets available. Third problem was that access to the ice palace turned out to be via a 200 m stroll down an active ski slope (they didn't tell... More
