The Snow & Ice Sculpture Festival Bruges 2013Mini ice sculpted Bruges at the The Snow & Ice Sculpture Festival Bruges 2013, Belgium. It's -6C inside and all worth it. It looks to me like the exhibit is a tad larger than in past years.
The main theme this year is Disney's Frozen but my favorite piece was the traditional Belgian buildings in Bruges.
It's a great weekend activity especially for the kids. At the end of the exhibit there is a massive ice slide that our kids really loved. (Ok, we loved it too :-D)
To get warm you can have a shot of the hard liquor of your choosing, at the ice bar. Sadly the little shot glasses are plastic, not ice like in past years.
The ticket stand is not overcrowded so no need to get tickets online. They are open until January 5th, everyday from 10am-6pm. To avoid crowds, going during the week is better.
