Good half a day trip from Vienna!

Interesting place to visit if you are around Vienna and have half a day to spare. It is a train and a bus journey away from Vienna. Please check the bus timings before you leave... read more

It was a great trip outside of Vienna and very informative.. some history happened in the caves which I won't spoil but rather interesting to get the knowledge of.. I would definitely recommend a visit to this cave.. the tour I attended was in Arabic which was a surprise.. any question about the area was answered by the tour guide..... More

Interesting place to visit if you are around Vienna and have half a day to spare. It is a train and a bus journey away from Vienna. Please check the bus timings before you leave as the frequency is less. We ended up walking to the railway station after our visit to the cave. If the weather is pleasant, then... More

It is not typical cave, if you are looking for typical dripstones as stalactites and stalagmites, you will be disappointed. This is simple extra large underground space with interesting history. But main attraction is underground lake. It take about 20-30 minutes walk from entry to achieve it (depending on guide :)), and then you will have opportunity for about 10... More

Like others, when purchasing tickets I asked if tour was in English and the German woman said "yes." Well, tour was in German and Arabic. Very disappointed. Besides that, there isn't much to see. Luray Caverns is much better and in the USA. Do not waste your time. The castle was pretty cool to see if you do that first... More

Worth visiting, the whole experience of taking a walk inside the mine and witnessing part of the history where Nazi's manufactured air crafts in addition to the 10 mins boat trip in one of the largest underground lakes is all awsome. An easy 1 hour trip from Vienna u can do it by yourself, take S1 train heading to Mödling... More

To be completely honest I must admit that seegrotte itself is nice and the boatride absolutely lovely, but... Be warned! ...tour was in german (understandable as seegrotte is in austria) and arabic (!what the...!). When we asked if guide could also talk in english he snaped at us (in english) and continued tour in abovementioned 2 languages. Needless to say... More

Interesting to see! If you have NÖ card, there is free entrance. Bring jacket or something warm with you, because inside is only 9 deegres. Only thing I was dissapointed is that boat drive last only like 8 or 9 minutes. :(

Brilliant and well worth seeing! We used public transport to get here and had no problems! Remember to pack a jersey or jacket as caves are cold and wear sensible footwear as floor can be slippery!

Do you really want to waste an hour and a half, and EUR 11, stooping in a dingy tunnel for a mile or more each way, to ride for 5 minutes in a plastic boat with a guide who asks for tips at the end after you have seen all of 5 lighted caves with water in the bottom. Over... More
