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

We visited on August 22 2016 having decided a summertime trip up into the snow would be good fun. We hadn't really considered the ice caves until we got to Hintertux, so found ourselves buying some thick socks in one of the ski shops. The...More
