Famous for its hollywood connection we chose to visit as part of out journey to the castle which sits nearby. It is a journey through the mountain via old mining tunnels and the tour guide orates in English and German for tourists. I wont spoil the ending but its a nice way to finish. Our only criticism would be of... More

Guides very friendly and knowledgeable, familiarity with the history of this place is also very informative. To get here from Vienna just using the commuter train and local bus. Near... More

It is very close to the city of Vienna. We spent a morning there for this tour. We had an English guide to lead us for the trip. The underwater is very clear and beautiful. I would recommend people to come to see the beautiful water reflection. The guide is amazing too to explain the history of the mine. We... More

Not so cool as they talk. There are some interesting moments (for example remains of Heinkel jet planes factory), but in summary looking a bit boring.

The Seegrotte is a really cool place, but somehow they don't sell it properly. The tour was quick with not too many details, it would have been interesting to hear more historical stuff about the WWII site, but they concentrate more on the film. As it was mentioned before, a lot depends on the guide and I guess I got... More

We had an extra day in Vienna and decided to visit Seegrotte mine. It proved to be an excellent decision since we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Some people find it difficult to understand the route, so I will briefly explain the route. Take a train to station named Modling from central Vienna. Right outside the station is a bus stop...

Our family of four recently visited the mine and underground lake after a visit to the Burg Lichtenstein. The guide for the mine was entertaining and informative. We would highly recommend visiting the sight in conjunction with the castle. Be forewarned it is cold down in the mine, but they rent good blankets for a nominal fee.

Be strong to reach the underground lake through a difficult route ! That is the thrill. This may be one of its kind. There is guided tour explaining the history from a Cave to Mine to Nazis making war planes during world war 2 to a tourist attraction for entertainment, in and around the Lake.! A must see attraction.
