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

Went to the Zillertol mountain range in Austria with some friends this weekend and while half of the group wanted to ski and snowboard, me and another friend preferred to go mountain climbing and hiking. Came across a flyer for Natur Eis Palast, located at the top of the Hintertux glacier, and it was a great surprise! To get there... More

Was persuaded that this was a must see part of my visit to Hintertux. Wasn't told just how hard it would be to get around it. Could hardly make the entrance down the snow covered slope. Inside was not a lot better. Pathways covered in ice, ladders to scale, posts sticking out at face level. It would be very easy... More

Visited early july 2013. A very large group was brought into the very narrow and slippery ice caves over multiple steep ladders and frozen stairs. However exciting for us wearing warm clothes and sturdy hiking shoes, many were let in on flat sneakers and without sunglasses to protect their eyes for the extreme sunlight reflection on the glacier one is...

It's interesting to visit this ice cave at around 3250 meters on top of the mountain. There are tours during the day on certain hours (last tour in the winter is around 14:30). Be careful if you go there with small children or with ski booths during skiing, there are several aluminum ledders to climb up & down and some... More

The nature does not very often give the opportunity to squint into it's kitchen. So this is the chance. Frankly speaking I did not found out anything new to add to the geographical lessons in the middle school. But there is the huge difference between the theoretical knowledge and your own experience. There are two type of excursions short one... More

My wife, son and I joined a tour of the glacier on Xmas day and thouroughly enjoyed it. Access not the best, only suitable for the fit and able bodied. Tour was led by pleasant young man who spoke German and English and was very informative. Well worth the entrance fee.
