Ice Palace


The Dachstein Ice Palace is a seductive and mystical world of ice and snow deep inside the Dachstein glacier.

Let yourself be guided six meters under the eternal ice to a time travel through history!

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.

A time travel through history

Since June 2020, we invite you to join us for an icy time travel through history.

Our Ice Palace team, consisting of Hans Böhmer and Peter Strassegger, as well as the team of sculptor Michael Bachnetzer have worked attentively on the creation of some of our most important historical mile stones.

The journey through the eternal ice begins with dinosaurs and leads visitors from the old Egyptiac pharaoh Tutanchamun to the first landing on the moon. In addition, revolutionary ideas such as the lightning bulb or the locomotive are carved into ice in all their glory details.
