Expedition to Eternal Ice


At Karls Erlebnis-Dorf in Rövershagen, seventeen artists from all over the world used more than 280 tonnes of ice to create Europe’s largest ice sculpture exhibition. Into the summer, visitors willing to brave temperatures of minus ten degrees can explore unique sculptures with an Arctic theme. They range from Hans Christian Andersen’s captivating Snow Queen to yetis, polar bears and Nordic Gods to the world’s first ever nuclear ice breaker, “Lenin”.

For this unique world of sculptures, which is brought to life with impressive light and sound effects, tonwelt and “roving reporter Wilna Wetzer” produced an original audio guide to enchant children and adults alike.
Accompanied by Wilna, visitors discover a landscape drenched in spectacular northern light. Wilna, who would describe it as “great cinema,” is joined by Father Frost, an expert with a long white beard, big overcoat and warm hat. He spends the remaining part of the year at the North Pole, where temperatures often drop to minus 40 degrees and lower. “When you’re there, it’s not only your breath that freezes, but every hair, your beard, eyebrows and each fibre of your hat,” Father Frost explains. So dress warmly and get ready to be bedazzled.
