The icy journey begins only 200 metres away from the highest point of the Hintertux Glacier.
A secure trail to the gates of the palace leads from the viewing platform at the Gefrorenen Wand (3.250 m), where stunning views of the mountains of Zillertal can be enjoyed. After a thorough equipment check (helmet, harness with 2 safety loops) the trail leads into this natural phenomenon.
The fascinating tour begins in the mystical glacial blue of the entrance area. To see the diversity of turquoise blue tones is an incredible experience in itself. Natural sunlight is all that is required to bathe the entire hall of ice in shades of blue - as this is the only colour that ice reflects.
