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

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

Visited with my wife who is a bit nervous with regards to heights and ladders. She found it nerve racking as the ladders are small and slippery. The guides are not very good and you feel rushed. The tour is over before you know it and you are left expecting more.

Well worth the effort to visit but I'm not sure that the title of ice palace gives an idea of what to expect. This glacier is unique and it's quite mind blowing to be walking around inside it and take a trip on a boat! Don't attempt it in ski boots and take your crash helmet as it's better than... More

Just randomly decided to do this and was pleasantly surprised! This "ice palace" is not only super interesting but also a beautiful thing to witness. You are led through an hour long tour and get to walk through it at your own pace to look at all the wonderful glittering ice. (however I wouldn't recommend the boat ride its about... More

If you take the little brochure you have already read more than is told and seen the prettiest that this site has to offer. We paid 21€ p.p. for the so-called grande tour and about 32€ p.p. to get all the way up the glacier. First you have to get to the entrance, which means, descending the mountain on foot... More
