The ice cave

In the Dachstein Giant Ice Cave - one of the largest ice caves in the world - a musical highlight of the special class takes place annually. The concert series "Eisklang" offers a unique acoustic experience in the Parsifaldom of the Rieseneishöhle, in a crystal clear atmosphere and in front of bizarre ice formations, from the classic to jazz improvisations and swinging blues and boogie. Musicians, which are partly engaged in world-renowned orchestras, transform the unique ambience with brilliant, dreamy sounds to a concert hall, where you get goose bumps not only because of the outside temperatures.
