  • A really interesting formation, it was a unique experience to "go from summer to the winter" for an hour. However the ice forms are more spectacular in winter season, it was very nice so.  more »
  • May be this is cave from ice age. The Ice Cave name itself is not appropriate, we are of opinion. The parky space is huge.  more »
  • We were there about 10 years ago and was amazing. The ice columns, just as on the pictures. Now all that is gone. Just some ice and snow on the ground. Disappointing. Be prepared to come earlier as there is 10-20 min hike from the road to the entrance of the cage. Additional fee for parking about 8EUR.
  • Attractive cave but we expected to see some more ice. Inside very beautiful. Hiking uphill takes about 15 minutes. Be aware, inside the cave it is cold so advise not to wear shorts.
