Adventure: Ice Cave
The Schellenberger ice cave is located at1570 meters. Ideally, the visitors hikeup early in the seasion, after opening the ice cave. You can reach the entrance from starting in the valley or make a long hike from the mountain station of the cable car. As earlier you visit the cave in the spring as more ice is in theSchellenberger ice cave. The cave tours takes about 45minutes (depending on the season).
Please, you must bedressed warmly. Temperatures in the cave
are partly below zero.So don´t forget the warm clothings even in the summer!!
Track to the Ice cave:
Between the village Marktschellenberg and the border toAustria, on the B 305, you will find a small, free car park for the Schellenberger ice cave. Here, close to the historical "boarder tower",the challenging climb begins on a good path. Throught shady forests you will reach the treeline in about 1,5h to 2 hours. Above you will have a magnificentview of the Untersberg and theToniLenz Hut (1.450m). From this point it´s a other good hour. From there it's only 20 minutes to Schellenberger ice cave.
