Eis Pavillon (Ice Pavilion)

Eis Pavillon (Ice Pavilion) Review

Considered the largest in the world, the Eis Pavillon combines fascinating construction with a dash of kitsch. More than 25 feet below the ice pack, the cavernous facility provides an impressive view of the surreal, frozen environment inside glacial formations. There are ice sculptures, exhibits on glaciology and crevasse rescue, and even a chapel-like room for meditation, concerts, and art shows. In winter, the ticket for the cable car and underground funicular is pricey, but if you are up on the mountain, spring for the entrance fee and have a look below the frozen surface of the earth. It's free in summer with Saas-Fee Visitor's Passport.
