THE DACHSTEIN ICE PALACE – A MYSTICAL WORLD OF ICE
The Dachstein Ice Palace is a seductive and mystical world of ice and snow deep inside the Dachstein glacier.
Marvel six meters below the eternal ice at the exhibition Up the Mountains!
Created in 2007, the Ice Palace astounds visitors with intricately detailled carved figures, ice pillars & a crystal dome.
The Ice Palace is just a three-minute walk away from the mountain station of the Dachstein Glacier cable car and is open daily.
- The Ice Palace can only be reached via the suspension bridge!
- Good shoes and warm clothes are recommended for the visit!
- Dogs are not allowed on the suspension bridge, the stairway to nothingness and in the ice palace!

IMPRESSIONS FROM THE DEPTH OF THE GLACIER
UP TO THE MOUNTAINS
Since January 2022 we take you on an icy journey - up to the mountains!
Our ice palace team, consisting of Hans Böhmer and Peter Strassegger, has been working diligently on the completion of the ice figures together with the sculpture team around Michael Bachnetzer.
The journey through the eternal glacier ice begins at the first T-bar lift and leads the visitors via the climber, who climbs the Dachstein for the first time, to the summit cross with mountain greeting. A mountain biker or an ibex are also carved in detail from ice.
Of course, the anniversary "50 years Planai-Hochwurzen Bahnen" with its own stadium under this motto may not be missing!
