I went with my family to the Hintertuxer Gletcher in late September. Once we were at the top of the mountain, the views were breathtaking. We signed up for the glacier tour, and while we waited, we were able to tube down a small slope...More

When we enquired about the tour we were assured that it was quite safe and easy. We are from Australia with no experience of snow. We even asked if the shoes we had were suitable and were assured that it was easy to access the...More

The views at the top of the glacier were beautiful and definitely worth seeing but do not pay for a guided tour of the ice palace if you don't speak German or aren't experienced with the system- it didn't feel like tourists were welcome. The...More

We arrived at 10:30 to be led into the cave with helmet. The climb down is fairly easy with ladders to help with the decent. It is quite wet so wear waterproofs and gloves as the metal ladders are cold. The guide speaks perfect English...More

Expensive for what it is, particularly on top of the cable car price. We paid extra to take photographs, but the guide didn't check this so I guess we wasted our money on that. It is a physically demanding attraction right from the start. It's...More

I should have read the review before trying this tour. Inside the cave is nice but it is just too overpriced. We are three adults and ended up paying totally E88 because they topped up the photograph prices. I wanted to give nice presents to...More

It costs around 20 euros you have to wear a helmet and be prepared to climb up and down ladders inside the glacier. Often just spoken in German with occasional English. Worth doing once but not repeated

The Ice Palace is right at the very top of the Hintertux Glacier which itself is definately worth a visit. The Ice Palace however is a giant let down. Surprisingly this was recommended by other people who also went there. The lady on reception (which...More
