The Nature Ice Palace at the Hintertuxer Glacier is a natural gem, unique worldwide and an ideal year round excursion destination for the whole family. The entrance to this ice cave is only a 3 to 4 minute walk from the top station of the Gletscherbus 3 lifts. On guided tours, visitors are asked to „Step inside” to this wonderful world deep beneath the ski slopes and discover a glacial crevasse with magical ice stalactites, giant sparkling ice crystals, frozen waterfalls and even a glacial lake.
The Nature Ice Palace has a constant temperature of 0° degrees 365 days of the year. Warm clothing and sturdy shoes are required for the tour, which is easy to negotiate – even wearing ski boots. The Nature Ice Palace fascinates both adult glacier fans as well as families with children aged 6 and over with its cool, natural beauty.
Visitors to the ice caves can choose between two different tours accompanied by experienced guides: The grande tour takes 60 minutes and shows the most beautiful attractions held captive within the glacier. Children’s tours are also possible for groups of a minimum of 10 participants, advance reservation is required.
The ice cave is open all year round and can be visited in any weather. A visit to the Nature Ice Palace can also be easily combined with a ski day on the Hintertux Glacier or with a trip to enjoy the views from the panoramic terrace.
