Jungfraujoch Ice Tunnel

Imagine yourself walking inside a huge block of ice, that is how I felt walking in this ice tunnel. This is the entrance to the Jungfraujoch Ice Palace in Switzerland. It is freezing! I thought that I would be slipping and sliding all over the place but thank goodness I didn't. The Ice Palace is situated 100 feet under the Aletsch Glacier. It is a 3,280 sq.ft. museum made entirely of natural ice. Inside the Ice Palace are ice sculptures of wildlife: penguins, eagles, bears and fish. There is even an Inuit fishing beside an igloo. If you go, I advise that you bring a thick jacket or wear a couple of layers of clothing. Do not wear shorts, unlike some tourists we saw. They probably thought it would be warm since it was in the middle of June.
