“Breathtaking views”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

We were lucky to be in Dachstein on a sunny day, moreover there was an Austrian bank holiday, so the price for the cable car was reduced by 25%, otherwise if you want to see it all, you have to pay over 41euros- i.e. for the cable car and the Ice Palace including the price of the suspension bridge. A good idea Austrians! Though it is a bit pricey, I think it is worth the money.Once you get off the cable car, there is a skywalk - a platform with breathtaking views of the mountains, some of them snowclad. A few steps away there is an entrance to the Ice Palace and the Suspension Bridge. The suspension bridge is an interesting experience, not so scary as you might think, so definitely try it. At the end of the bridge there are "steps into nothingness", again a special experience, though there are usually a lot of people who want to take a snap. Not so scary as advertised on the web but definitely a unique experience. Do not miss it. The Ice Palace was a bit disappointing for me, as the floor was very slippery, it was all ice on the floor with the exception of some scattered metal grids and as it was the end of the season, there were reparaition works going on. Definitely saw a more interesting Ice Palace in Switzerland. Maybe children would like it. All in all do not miss the Dachstein mountain top area, even if you do not want to go skiing.

“Stunning View”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

A good experience to be High up on the mountain. I thought it a bit expensive at 33 euros each. but the sky bridge was free on the day, I cant believe you would normally have to pay for this. Didn't go to the Ice Cave, as we were not particularly interested. Did get some stunning photographs, on what was a very clear day.

“Great - But Book ahead for the Weekends”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Had a great time here, the views on the clear day we had were amazing. Got some great photos on the Bridge, the Sky Walk and in the Ice Caves. worth the trip and the money!

If you do try and go on a weekend, I suggest you book ahead, we tried to go up at 10:30 on the Sunday and the next slot was 1:15! Monday it was empty at the same time!

“Amazing view.”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 via mobile

This was totally worth its money. Although you are charged seperately for The Ice Palace and Skyview platform, still worth it. Unbelievable view. Grossglockner and the Austrian alps for your eyes only.
