  • A cool trip an well worth the price. The tour could be a little bit less stressy with more time at some stations. The light show is nice. But the sound effects were too much for us.  more »
  • Just follow the signs/description on the street after Hallstatt. Take the cable car to the intermediate station - first stop. From there it is a steep 10 minute walk up the path to the ice cave...  more »
  • We visited here today. The way up was beautifully snow covered. The caves were very interesting and a fun excursion. Definitely worth it. Guide was nice and helpful.
  • The Dachstein Giant Ice Cave, which sounds like fun, turned out to be a disappointment. Who would have thought ice caves could be so...uncool? Well, they are if you try to generate excitement by playing the 2001 Odyssey theme while lighting up the ice formations in blue, purple, and pink. And who could not like Boris the animatronic Cave Bear??? To top it off, they ended the tour with the Dracula organ music for a very cheesy finale, with the piece de resistance of ice having a very unfortunate shape (you’ve been warned).
