In 2007, a hiker called Roman found a 10cm-wide fissure on top of the Hintertux glacier and - being a complete legend - climbed down into it and discovered a network of ice caves. Since then, he has almost single-handedly turned them into a rather...More

The ice caves themselves are fairly interesting, but as is evident in many of the reviews below, management needs to improve the level of the guide(s), which ruins the whole experience. I've traveled around the world, and we had the worst guide ever - totally...More

I went with my family to the Hintertuxer Gletcher in late September. Once we were at the top of the mountain, the views were breathtaking. We signed up for the glacier tour, and while we waited, we were able to tube down a small slope...More

When we enquired about the tour we were assured that it was quite safe and easy. We are from Australia with no experience of snow. We even asked if the shoes we had were suitable and were assured that it was easy to access the...More

The views at the top of the glacier were beautiful and definitely worth seeing but do not pay for a guided tour of the ice palace if you don't speak German or aren't experienced with the system- it didn't feel like tourists were welcome. The...More

Visited here in July. Paid €21 plus an extra €5 for a photo pass. Can't remember what that money went towards, maybe maintaining the caves... You could say you don't want to take any... Once down there they certainly don't check who paid and who...More

Expensive for what it is, particularly on top of the cable car price. We paid extra to take photographs, but the guide didn't check this so I guess we wasted our money on that. It is a physically demanding attraction right from the start. It's...More

I should have read the review before trying this tour. Inside the cave is nice but it is just too overpriced. We are three adults and ended up paying totally E88 because they topped up the photograph prices. I wanted to give nice presents to...More
