Sky Walk & Ice palace
Sky Walk - Under your feet: the Hunerkogel rock face dropping away 250 metres straight down. All around you: an unrivalled mountain panorama. Welcome to the Dachstein Sky Walk, the most spectacular outlook platform in the Alps!
The Dachstein Ice Palace is located only three minutes on foot from the Upper Station of the Dachstein Gletscherbahn. It is open to visitors daily all year round - in any weather. Attractions like the “throne room,” the “crystal cathedral,” and the “blue parlour” await you in a tour deep within the glacier that hides many generous niches. The impressive entrance pillars and detailed decoration were created from the ice of the glacier itself by Chinese ice sculptors and employees of the Dachstein Gletscherbahn during weeks of work.
Sensational: the glacier crevice view
Recently, the Dachstein Ice Palace began offering a new attraction unique in the Alps. You can view the inside of a natural glacier crevice without any danger and with easy access. The dimensions themselves are imposing: 40 metres long, 17 metres deep, two metres wide and filled with up to 600,000 litres of water. The glacier crevice was discovered during the Ice Palace construction work. Stick your head through a huge porthole carved from the ice. Discover wonders of ice like naturally crown crystals up to 80 cm high.
Opening hours: daily from 8:30 to 16:30 when the cablecar is operational
