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

We visited Seegrotte as part of a tour that went through Vienna woods; reference Expedia details:- Pass through Baden and the Helenental Valley en route to the former Mayerling hunting lodge. The lodge is now a commemorative chapel, remembering the deaths of Crown Prince Rudolph and Baronesse Vetsera in 1889. Marvel at the intricate medieval cloister in the Cistercian Abbey... More

I will be honest, the main reason we visited was because I wanted to see an underground lake, and with the promise of the largest in Europe, I couldn't resist. If anything I was a little underwhelmed by the actual lake. It is all in an old gypsum mine that they accidentally flooded by blowing up the wrong bit. Because... More

Visited Seegrotte in Austria which is an underground lake. It is an old mine that got flooded and became a lake. The place was very beautiful and the water is very clear. The boat ride takes you through these cave openings that look so beautiful especially when reflected on the crystal clear water. The mine is very cold so do... More

A visit to the Seegrotte is important because of its unique position as a subterranean lake where one can actually ride on a boat. It is actually a Gypsum mine that got flooded in 1912 and is now Europe's largest subterranean lake. It was also used by the Nazis during WW II for manufacturing aircraft , using POW labour. Be...

The underground mine is converted to let people see the formations over the centuries. The boat ride seems to be the big hoohaa about the grotte, which is a short run in the dark. For the wait, the long walk, and above all underground chill, over-rated and over-priced. Could have saved the day trip.
