Skid-in! Ice Palace, Jungfraujoch

Jungfraujoch, one of my favourite places in Switzerland was exhilarating to say the least. While  there I visited the Ice Palace, which was super cool…literally too!

The Eispalast or Ice Palace is a terrific experience. After you enter in, the smile on your face gets frozen in time & while you try to oooh & aaah at the novelty of the experience &  ice sculptures around you…be careful. You really have to watch your step else you may just slip,  fall  &  find yourself ski-dding all the way down the icy corridors…nothing like a free ski sans the skis 🙂 Don’t go soooo fast that you frip on srippery glound.

Unsolicited advice – make sure your shoes are able to walk you across ice without slipping.  For the extra care needed to walk on this surface, I wouldn’t encourage elderly folks to try it.

  1. In Scandinavia they have ice bars and hotels, and I thought it would be fun to go look at one, but we took our trip during the wrong season. This is a fun idea. Thanks for posting.

  2. I am planning on visiting the palace in October….I’d appreciate any advice regarding the footwear…What kinda shoes to take if we keep in mind visiting the ice palace? 🙂

    • Hi Anubha, great to know your visiting..it’s awesome. On footwear, sports sneakers are fine but ensure to pick up something where the sole is specifically meant for walking on slippery terrain (mud & snow). All the best.
