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

Avoid this destination. It is a tourist trap. It is over an hour away from Vienna. I would advise people to visit one of the salt mines rather than visit this place. The tour is in German only and they have a translating machine which can only play one language (which happened to be in Romanian the day we went).... More

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
