The Hintertux Glacier in Tyrol
The Hintertux Glacier is the only all-year-round skiing area in Austria, and offers winter sports people 365 days of perfectly prepared runs where there is sure to be snow, a fascinating natural experience at up to 3250 m.
Enjoy the snow on the glacier all year round
Both beginners and experienced skiers and snowboarders enjoy skiing on the Hintertux Glacier on more than 59 km of pistes at all levels of difficulty. And deep snow fans won't feel left out either: the Betterpark at 3200 m is the attraction for all snowboarders.
Natural ice palace
The natural ice palace on the Hintertux Glacier is a natural jewel, the only one of its kind in the world and an ideal all-year-round destination for the whole family. The entrance to the ice cave is just 3-4 minutes' walk from the mountain stop on glacier bus line 3, with guided tours inviting you into the wonderful world deep below the piste. Here, visitors can discover a crack in the glacier they can walk through, with magical ice stalactites, giant sparkling ice crystals, frozen waterfalls, even a glacier lake.
Hintertux Glacier walking experience
From leisurely Alpine pasture walks to demanding mountain peak tours, there's a personal challenge here for any 'mountain goat'. And families and nature lovers can take the summer trails to discover a fascinating mountain world at up to 3250 m and top up on energy for their everyday life.
The Spannagel Cave on the Hintertux Glacier is the highest show cave in Europe, and a particularly rewarding destination for families with children. With a surveyed length of around 12.5 km, it's the biggest rock cave in the Central Alps, with guided tours over around 500 m close to the entrance.
The family-friendly Spannagel Cave natural monument is open all year round, and an ideal destination, even if the weather's bad.
