Ice palace Schwarzsee

Ice caves, igloos, a penguin hill, a pirate ship and a dragon cave – just a short drive from the BELLEVUE PALACE Bern away, in the canton of Fribourg, you will find this fascinating paradise. Karl Neuhaus prepares this mesmerizing world out of ice every year since 3 decades.

When the nighttime falls, the sculptures and palaces are lit with colorful lights, resulting in an even bigger miracle.

The season to visit this sightseeing usually lasts until mid-March; however, it depends on the climate.

Did you know?

… that the famous poet Rainer Maria Rilke was a guest at the BELLEVUE PALACE in Bern in the early years? Apparently, he did like some of the products at the hotel’s barber so much he was ordering them after he had already left. In August 1919 and March 1920, he sent letters to order an aftershave, a skin cream and razor blades from the BELLEVUE PALACE. At this time, he was staying in Solio in the Grisons, where these products were not available.
