The Spannagel Cave (German: Spannagelhöhle) is a show cave near Hintertux, in the Zillertal Alps in the Austrian state of Tyrol.

Its entrance lies below the Spannagelhaus (2531 m), a mountain hut formerly run by the Austrian Tourist Club (ÖTK). The cave and the hut are named after Dr. Rudolf Spannagel, who was the president of the ÖTK from 1902 to 1904.

  • Inside the cave you get to climb, slip through small holes and areas, quite fun. But the guide cannot speak English so basically you pay money to go in and look and climb around and you won't learn...  more »
  • Great trip with kids [although a little expensive when you add the cable cars and the cave price]....Ice caves were much bigger than I anticipated. It was about 28 degrees in Hintertux, then 15 mins.....  more »
  • The cave is very beautiful and worth seeing. The entrance fee is reasonable and fine. The cave guide was very competent and friendly – Thank you again at this point. You can take the cable car to the Fehnerhaus and go downhill from there for about 10 minutes. In theory, you could also walk from the valley station, saving yourself the expensive price for the mountain and descent by cable car (€24 per adult). We come back for a trekking tour through the cave because we were thrilled by the "small" tour.
