The Most Beautiful Ice Castles in the World
These magnificent ice castles are the stuff winter dreams are made of.
If you’re someone who loves a good fairytale and believes the first snow to be one of the most magical days of the year, you need to visit an ice castle this winter. It’s hard to imagine these perfect crystalline structures existing outside of storybooks or Hollywood movie sets, but a select few ice castles are even relatively accessible.
Visiting these castles requires strategic planning that relies on weather conditions, with most ice castles slated to go up in December or January. Some of these enchanting castles last all winter long, while others are only erected for a week or two as part of an ice festival (which are held annually around the world).
The perfect attraction for both a family vacation or a romantic getaway with your partner, these ice castles are also the ideal venue to plan a proposal or wedding. As for the ice castles that double as luxury resorts, we recommend staying overnight for a truly otherworldly experience.
