This is the most beautiful cave I have ever visited. And not only it's nice also the service is great. The tour guide has fluent English, his words were easy to understand and he was very profesional. Since it's only 9° Celsius in the cave you can borrow a blanket too (for a small fee of 50 cents). The underground... More

It used to be a gypsum mine but when it was flooded...it became a tourist attraction. That being said...during WWII...the Nazis used it to build airplane parts..safe from Allied bombs. It has an interesting history and well worth a visit.

The Seegrotte is certainly off of the proverbial beaten path but well worth the trip! The mines are really cool and the underground lake is amazing! I highly recommend it! My only warning is that getting back to Vienna can be challenging. We took a city bus from the Seegrotte to Modling and then caught a train back to Vienna... More

Seegrotte was located in the outskirt of Vienna. It was an underground lake, previously a mine, but flooded in WWII. Entrance to the cave was Euro 10 including briefing by Adam, guide with humour, but be careful that you would have to walk for about 15 minutes on slippery floors/steps for the boat ride. Temperature underground should be about 10... More

This is one of the must visit place in the town which is a day trip from Vienna. The place is quite unusual and is a guided tour with a sail in battery driven boat in underwater caves. The temperature is low but venue rents blankets at 50 cents per trip. The guide had a great sense of humour besides... More

A great tour to see part of the local history. We had Adam as our guide and he was wonderful. A great sense of humor. Bring a sweater or light jacket, and wear shoes with non slip sole. Bathrooms cost .50€ to use

We visited this attraction as a part of our tour to Heiligenkreuz Abbey, and as it was the last stop, we were a bit tired. Frankly, there is a very long walk into the mountain and then 85 steps down to the boats, so it is not for the faint-hearted or those who have trouble walking or with stairs. And... More

Have you ever felt like a mine worker? Here you do feel like one. It is historically a telling place. The water is blue and there are lights everywhere. We had the boat tour that was short, it is like traveling inside a cave filled with lake water. They say that each month they have to empty the water. Inside... More

It was a great experience . Its the largest underground lake in Europe . Its inside the mines and worth going for a tour which lasts almost an hour .
