Nature's Ice Palace
The Natural Ice Palace has been opened to the public since 3rd November 2008. In August 2007 Roman Erler of Natursport Tirol, whilst doing a mountain tour discovered the cave by chance and subsequently surveyed it. At this time it was never considered opening it to the public because of the natural movement of the glacier. Astoundingly there was little movement of the wall although the iceflow was at a 30° gradient.
Guided tours are from 9.30 am (advance notice required), 10.30 am, 11.30 am, 12.30 pm, 1.30 pm and 2.30 pm.
