History of the Ice Palaces

«Ice and water are unique subjects for the nature», underline Karl Neuhaus. Every winter the Fribourger of 84 years old created in the environs of Schwarzsee an enchanted univers of ice with magnificent Palaces and sculptures. To build this wonderful world of ice he just needed scrap iron, some wood planks, an installation of watering and a lot of imagination.

Since the fourth winter Kari is no longer active. His successor is Flavio Catillaz, who now builds and operates the ice palaces.
