Kids Loved it, fun interesting and energetic, but no large spaces, lots of ladders, not for feint hearted

We took our 6 and 8 year old boys here for a treat and adventure. The cable car ride up to 10,000 feet was spectacular and the final 3rd stage is not for the feint hearted! We... read more

Just 0,5 km of walk over metal ladders and passing stairs with steps full of icy water and besides a few very impressive icicles nothing to see. "Boattrip" just exciting for claustrophic people. Not worth the time nor money (21 Euros per adult) Sicherlich kein Palast! Es sind nur 0,5km zu gehen über Leitern und teils im Eiswasser stehenden Treppen,... More

It takes 3 long cable car rides to get to the highest point over 3000m where you can enjoy snow even in the middle of summer. The views are awesome. There is a very nice sun terrace at the second cable car stop. It is not cheap ( approx. 33 Euros to get to the top and 21 Euros to... More

We visited on August 22 2016 having decided a summertime trip up into the snow would be good fun. We hadn't really considered the ice caves until we got to Hintertux, so found ourselves buying some thick socks in one of the ski shops. The ticket to get to the top of the mountain is purchased at the bottom, but... More

This attraction is way too expensive for what is offered. You need to pay the entrance at the top of the mountain where the lady at he counter does everything in order to convince you to do this attraction.

Firstly do not pay for VIP tour. As mentioned before this doesn't exist. We narrowly avoided overpaying. Disappointingly, this place feels like a rip-off as it it does not match the hype in the tourist websites and is borderline dangerous due to poor maintenance. Done properly this could be so much better. I get that it is a natural glacier... More

Nice ice cave, not so inpressive as you would expect. Staff is not bothered at all and charge way above the official price. In the brochure the price is 16 euro, they charge for a VIP tour 21 euro and it is a normal tour. There is no VIP tour. The waiting room is tiny and very basic, and only... More

Very Expensive, quite boring, staff don't bother and dangerous. The first part of the trip was really good, however, they didn't care about us as we are English. We said we were English and they said 'We don't speak much English since we are in Austria.' It got a bit boring after the first section. The first section was very... More

Very interesting activity and definitely exciting although you should be well prepared with good grip boots and be in fairly fit condition. The walk down is slippery and that is the easy part. When you emerge from the ice cave, you have to go back up the way you came down - it can be moderately difficult but if faced... More

We (wife + 10 yr old son) visited in February because we were in the area skiing anyway (skipass allowed us onto the cable car). We were concerned able doing the tour with ski boots, it turned out that it was no problem; however you had to pay extra attention going up & down the ladders with them on. We... More
