Bonjour, hola & servus!

Since May 2018 visitors to the Dachstein have been able to marvel at Europe's most famous sites in the Ice Palace. The journey takes them from the Eiffel Tower via the Brandenburg Gate and Vienna's Giant Ferris Wheel to the Rialto Bridge in Venice. Other famous landmarks recreated in ice include the Manneken-Pis statue from Brussels, the Mermaid of Warsaw and Holland's windmills. It's an opportunity for visitors to experience Europe's rich cultural heritage at close quarters.
