The place is amazing but by the time we get there, there was only a tour in German. So you have to pas attention on that. Otherwise that was a beautiful experience.

I have to agree with the majority of reviews on here - this is fine if you just want to kill two hours, particularly on a very hot day when it is around a constant 9 degrees underground. Some objective negatives - personally I think it is a little overpriced for what it is and the café charges a high... More

We visited Seegrotte, the biggest underground lake in Europe last weekend with kids aged 9 months in a carry on and 4-8 ( 6 of them) and I must say we all enjoyed. It was not too long for the kids, distance or time, interesting and exciting at the end, when they went on the boat. Kids were happy and... More

Especially I enjoyed to learn about the history of the grotte (Nazis built airplanes there during the WW2). There is also a Hollywood movie history from the 90ies. And also a nice touch is the ride with the boat in the lake.Enjoyed it, worth the trip. While going by public transport from Vienna is a mess (train from Vienna to... More

Its not everyday you can visit Europes largest underground lake. Our guide Alex was very entertaining, funny and a great guide and this made the experience that much better. Yes its €10 for a 35 minute tour and you are left to your own devices for the last ten minutes which I liked. There is quite alot of upkeep for... More

Interesting and nice attraction, going with boat through the lake was the best part. Guide was a little bit fast, you dont have much time to wonder around. Comparing to the experience I think the entrance fee is high, I was expecting more and longer program. But it was nice indeed.

A decent attraction. Lots of historical trivia about these gypsum mines which are now leading to a subterranean lake (largest in Europe). The guide was very witty and friendly. A decent cafe next to it.

If you are already in the Vienna Woods (perhaps visiting the nearby Lichtenstein Castle), you should stop here if you are interested in WWII history or Disney's The Three Musketeers movie. An odd combination, right? The Seegrotte is an undergorund complex where German aircraft were once built in secret during WWII, so there is some interesting history on the tour.... More

We were there in spring. Went There By train, Then took the bus from the station. The guide speaks several languages. He is a funny person in a funny costume, but it's a part of his job. Told us a lot of stories, took through the maze of labitinth. We had a boat trip on the lake (sea). Films were... More
