Visited here on the day we took an excursion coach up the valley to the Hinterlux glacier lifts but you could get there by the local service bus. Our weekly Zitteral cards only covered us for the first of the 3 lifts up to the...More

Visited here in July. Paid €21 plus an extra €5 for a photo pass. Can't remember what that money went towards, maybe maintaining the caves... You could say you don't want to take any... Once down there they certainly don't check who paid and who...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

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

Visited the Ice Palace as part of a day skiing on the Hintertux Glacier. No need to pre-book, just turn up and take a tour (departs each hour from the top of the lift system). Natural corridors under the ice have been expanded to create...More

You get to go on a boat ride in the the middle of a glacier at the top of a mountain... what more can I say. The altitude can make the walk back to the glacier bus a bit breathless, but otherwise absolutely fascinating.

The Guide was excellent ! The tour is well organized and the visitors must come well prepared with well covered water resist boots as the floor could become wet with very cold water
