Hundsalm Eis- und Tropfsteinhöhle - Wörgl

With expert guidance, one can venture up to 45 meters below the surface into the Hundalm Ice and Dripstone Cave, the only publicly accessible ice cave in the Northern Tyrolean Alps. The cave is located above Angerberg/Mariastein, with the main entrance at an altitude of 1520 meters.

Spring is an especially recommended time to visit, as the cave displays the most bizarre ice formations. Its ice and rock formations provide a fascinating insight into the secrets of the formation and development of our Earth. This story is compellingly told by members of the cave research association during a guided tour. Before heading underground, participants are equipped with mining lamps and helmets.

One descends through a narrow gorge using well-secured stairs into the mountain. Just a few meters in, the first ice surfaces are visible — almost still under the open sky. Then, the well-developed paths continue deeper into the intricate cave labyrinth. There are frequent opportunities to closely examine the abstract shapes of ice and stone. The truly large and spectacular ice and rock formations are hidden deep within the mountain.

  • From Langkampfen: via the well-maintained forest road from Mariastein to Buchacker, then on to the ice cave - walking time approximately 3 hours.
  • From Hinterthiersee: towards Modal to Köglalm, continue to Hundsalm and then to the ice cave - walking time about 2.5 to 3 hours.
