This was the first ice cave we have visited and we absolutely loved it! It really is narnia esque! The staff make the tour really interesting and are funny too. You cant take photos yourself but you can buy post cards in the shop afterwards....More

We had an awesome day and were surprised how interesting and fun it was. That said, this is not a excursion for everyone. You need to be in pretty good shape to walk up the hillside, then take a tram, and walk up a mountain...More

If you're even considering this, you should do it! It was amazing. There are stunningly gorgeous views on the walk/gondola ride up. There are spectacular ice formations inside the cave, which is like something from another world. The hike up is a bit steep, but...More

What a fantastic experience! The walk/cablecar/walk journey to the ice cave brightens the experience. It’s a workout inside, with so many steps, but a wonderful place hidden inside the mountain. Highly recommend a visit!

Hi Corinne. The ice cave is closed in October because there is too much snow. Are you planning on being in Austria for the holidays? Great skiing and beautiful scenery.
