Season end 2021/2022 – The ice palaces are closed

A fairytale world of ice and light with caves, caves and fantastic ice buildings awaits you and your family in the ice palaces. Experience the true magic of winter in the Schwarzsee valley!

When the temperatures drop below freezing, it’s time for the ice palaces. Sparkling ice crystals and glittering ice sculptures enchant visitors for the 36th time at the ice palaces in Schwarzsee. They can be walked through and climbed and are a memorable and unforgettable experience for the whole family

Two courses lead you through the ice and fairy tale world. They both begin and end at a playground. For the children, the ride on a giant, illuminated swing and the fast ice slide are among the highlights of the evening.

The real beauty of the ice palaces is revealed in the evening at dusk. Then the different ice formations are particularly impressive due to the shimmering light colours. If it hasn’t snowed yet, the ice palaces sparkle like a crystal.

Warm you up at our little restaurant and enjoy a delicious mug of tea or a freshly prepared mulled wine, a traditional hot spicy wine. Spoil yourself by eating a delicious typical Swiss cheese fondue. Or you can grill your own sausages in the barbecue hut.

With a bit of luck you’ll also meet Kari, the founder of this fantastic fairytale world and after the ice adventures his stories are just heartwarming.
