Experiences in the eternal ice

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 10 minute walk from the top station of the glacierbus 3 lift. Visitors are asked to „Step inside” to this wonderful world deep beneath the ski slopes to discover a glacial cave system with magical ice stalactites, giant sparkling ice crystals, frozen waterfalls and even a glacial lake.

At Nature's Ice Palace is a constant temperature of 0°C. The ice cave is open all year and you can visit it in all weathers. You can perfectly combine a visit with a ski day or a fantastic view from the panorama terrace.
