In August, the Dachstein Ice cave is transformed from the most popular excursion in Salzkammergut to a unique concert hall! Internationally renowned musicians of all genres gather in this special atmosphere to impress guests with their sounds which are anything but frosty!
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.
