A deeper insight into the eternal ice at Nature’s Ice Palace

Nature’s Ice Palace at the Hintertux 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 glacierbus 3 lift. On tours, visitors are asked to „Step inside” to this wonderful world deep beneath the ski slopes and discover a glacial cave system with magical ice stalactites, giant sparkling ice crystals, frozen waterfalls and even a glacial lake.
