Spannagel Cave natural monument

The Spannagel Cave at the Hintertux Glacier is Europe’s highest altitude publicly accessible cave and a very worthwhile day trip destination for families with children. With a measured length of around 12.5 km it is the largest rock cave system in the Central Alps, 500 metres of which can be experienced by visitors on a guided tour.
Opening hours:
From 15 October 2015 to 31 May 2016 Mondays and Fridays upon request
Reservations at +43 5287 87251

Guided tours

During the 1 hour tour accompanied by a certified guide, visitors will be taken through this unique labyrinth of marble and sintering, shown geological features such as stalactites, marble seams and glacial pot holes and informed of interesting facts about the cave. And maybe even catch a glimpse of a bat during this underground expedition! As is appropriate for cave explorers of all ages, visitors will be provided with rubber boots, a helmet and raincoat for the tour. 
The family friendly Spannagel Cave Natural Monument is open all year round and is an ideal place to visit even in bad weather.
Hot tip
On request, extensive tours of several hours are available, where cave trekkers are taken even deeper into the complex cave system under the Hintertux Glacier.
