Dachstein Giant Ice Cave in Obertraun on foot of the Krippenstein


These magnificent giant ice palaces rank among the greatest natural wonders of the Alps. People come from all over the world come to admire these subterranean Dachstein ice caves.

Gigantic cave glaciers, vast icebergs, frozen cascades of blue-coloured ice and "ice chapels" are just some of the highlights of your tour. These caves are the perfect refuge for humans and animals on cold, rainy days - just as they have been for thousands of years - and on a hot summer's day they are a welcome contrast to the outside world.

Caves are like ancient historic documents - a record of how the world has changed over time. Your tour guide will explain the findings of scientists who have tried to unravel the secrets of the earth's history.

Free admission to the "Caves Museum" in Obertaun while the caves are open to visitors.
NEW: Guided tour with the free Audioguide app "Hearonymus" for your smartphone  avaiable in 7 languages.
