A dream of snow and ice
The glacier is a habitat and place for adventure, always in the flow and yet of majestic calm.
The Hintertux Glacier
Austria’s only year-round ski area with plenty of pecularities
The Hintertux Glacier is a jack of all trades when it comes to the most beautiful holiday experiences. In Winter, it is part of the Ski- und Gletscherwelt Zillertal 3000 (Ski- and Glacier World 3000 Zillertal) with fantastic 203 km of slopes and a sensational ski track of 72 km and 15,000 altitudes. But that’s not all: The NaturEisPalast (Natural Ice Palace) and the Spannaglhöhle (marble cave) are underground attractions for the whole family.

Wonder of natural at the Hintertux Glacier
Only a few minute's walk from the mountain station of the “Glacier Bus”, you find a rather unremarkable entrance to another world: the NaturEisPalast (Natural Ice Palace). Descend to 30 meters beneath the surface along the way from natural crevasses, cages, and artfully built passageways. Discover the underground glacier lake of never-freezing water and take an enchanting boat trip. The contrast could not be sharper when stepping out of the artfully illuminated, freezing calmness into the sunlight! One-stop further by the Glacier Bus down the valley, the next discovery awaits you: the Spannaglhöhle. The marble cave dazzles among other things with cave bears’ actual skeletons and thereby conveys a different but just as exciting impression from the inside of the mighty Hintertux Glacier.
