The magical new sculptures of Europe’s largest ice exhibition have been unveiled in Brandenburg on Friday.

The hall, spanning over 2,000 metres squared (21,527 sq/f), features impressive stations of favourite fairytales, including Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and Little Red Riding hood.

27 artists worked on the sculptures for over just under three weeks, in conditions between -8 and -10 degrees Celsius.

Artistic director Othmar Schiffer-Belz said there were “27 artists from all over the world. For the entire exhibition, they did 25 fairy-tale stations, with many, many sculptures. It took around 20 days.”

The exhibition is open for nearly 11 months until October 30 2022. This year’s theme is ‘And when they are not melted, then they still stand today.’

SOT, Othmar Schiffer-Belz, Artistic director at Eiswelt: “We have built this hall, especially for ice sculptures. It’s floor space is over 2,000 metres squared. It is open until October 30, almost 11 months, therefore is Europe’s biggest ice sculpture exhibition to be seen at this place.”

SOT, Othmar Schiffer-Belz, Artistic director at Eiswelt: “It was very difficult. We had 27 artists from all over the world. For the entire exhibition, they did 25 fairy-tale stations, with many, many sculptures. It took around 20 days.”

SOT, Othmar Schiffer-Belz, Artistic director at Eiswelt: “Currently, we have a temperature of around -8 degrees. That is so that the structures stay stable, and when one comes here, we have lovely ponchos, that protect a little. For us it is still manageable.”

SOT, Othmar Schiffer-Belz, Artistic director at Eiswelt: “In case that is really cold, we have an emergency station, here it is called the ice bar. And at the ice bar, one can drink a small vodka in an ice glass. Or strawberry drink. We also have warm drinks, there’s children’s punch, hot chocolate. All are provided for.”
