Loved every minute, we were literally above the clouds! Dress warmly though- even in August it was only 5 degrees up there. We went early in the morning 8:00 and spent about 2-3 hours walking around and also visiting the ice cave. The view leaves you simply breathless. On nice days you can also go on the open deck cable... More

We had a fun afternoon riding the gondola up to the Skywalk and Dachstein summit. Even though it was August, we experienced rain, snow, and dense fog on our journey up. If you can, be sure to get a "terrace" seat on the gondola -- it's outside on the gondola's roof, and is truly spectacular. Almost like an eagle's eye... More

Your afraid of heights? This is not the spot you want to be. Great view across the alps. Recommend to connect it with the ice palace

Of all the places we visited in Austria from when we landed in Wien and our drives all over The country; this place beats all hands down. So unbelievably beautiful; the four fingers have to be believed by going there.

This was a fantastic trip up to the glacier. We went on a sunny Saturday and it was very crowded because there are lots of walks around and parking was a bit difficult. We were fortunate to have the Summer Card so did not have to join the line for tickets. The trip in the lift gave great views of... More

It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen but it's a little beat expensive and unlike other places in Austria the service for families with small kids and babies is worse. Take into consideration that if you are from a warm place it might be very cold.

The place is really great with good scene. I was unlucky that I had been when it was raining and snowing heavily .. The cable carts costs like 30 € and there is ice palace which is for 10€ .. But you can avoid this ice palace.
