The Seegrotte, near Hinterbrühl, Austria, is a cave which was actually an old gypsum mine. It’s a spectacular natural monument. As the history of Seegrotte goes, in 1912, an underground blast operation in the gypsum mine “Hinterbruhl” caused millions of litres of water to gush...More

Everything OK, nice experience - maybe slightly overpriced when considered what you get in return. Do not expect too much and you won't be disappointed. The boat trip is very (I mean very) short and does not correspond with the "largest in Europe" status. Quite...More
