The ice grotto is a premanent feature. The ticket lady informed us that each year there is a different theme carved into the snow and ice. This year it was Carousel or fun fair. There is clever use of lighting to show off the sculptures....More

Visited the ice cave with my daughter. It’s so cleverly done and I was really amazed at some of the sculptures. If you are going up the mountain it’s definitely worth a visit.

Been coming to ADH for 13+years and can't believe we have never been. Went today, and were totally amazing by how good and detailed the sculptures are. Cheap to get in too. A must do activity if you're coming to ADH x

A little ice cave with ice sculptures - some very nicely done. Not recommended for adults, although it might be surely be enjoyable for young kids under adults' supervision.

An interesting 10 minute diversion, lots of ice and snow sculptures I guess it is a different theme every year. For the entry price of 5 euro is is something to do while waiting for the lift up to the summit
