Faces Pop Off the Walls Inside Germany’s Incredible Ice Hotel


IgluLodge is an ice hotel located on the Nebelhorn, a high mountain in the Allgu Alps near Oberstdorf, Germany. The venue offers a unique experience for visitors looking for a wintry getaway with eye-catching design featuring the sculptural and architectural work of local artists. Owner Matthias Lenz insists, “The interior design makes our guests speechless over and over again.”

The hotel’s artistic renderings are everywhere you look. The walls of the icy accommodations are full of lively inspiration in every direction as faces and objects made of snow and ice pop out at the viewer. The themes vary from room to room, encouraging exploration of the amenities, which includes a festive restaurant and an ice bar.

Guests are also welcome to soak in a relaxing hot tub outdoors. Despite the low temperatures of the environment, past visitors claim, “Inside the igloo it s not as cold as expected.” IgluLodge explains: “This is due to the interior design of the igloos!” Additionally, they say, “On the snow-beds lies a layer of insulation next to an original Norwegian reindeer skin and a sleeping bag, that without doubt, meets up to a Himalaya expedition!”

The IgluLodge is currently open for guests to book two- or four-person rooms through mid-April.
