Ice palace and art
Beauty is often fleeting and therefore all the more valuable. This is particularly true of the ice palace on the Jungfraujoch and its precious treasures. As early as the 1930s, mountain guides used picks and saws to create the corridors and halls in the middle of the Jungfraufirn. Nowadays, it is talented artists who shape the ice with extreme sensitivity.
On a smooth tour through this frosty world, visitors can discover their works of art in the niches. Eagles, penguins and bears look as lifelike as if they had just solidified into ice. Even at temperatures of minus three degrees Celsius, this art is meltingly beautiful.
