If you want to be charmed by the magic of snow and ice, head over to the Bruges Ice Sculpture Festival 2012, inspired by the tales of Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
“Ice Magic immerses you in the time immemorial magicians and enchanters. Take a trip to the land of giant sculptures by letting yourself be guided by the Philosopher’s Stone to the Ice Palace. Follow the talisman in the crystal forest and ward off the bewitching queen of snow. Get to know the legendary animals of the snow maze and find yourself face to face with the winter dragon. Take the ice slide to go to the dungeons and meet the knights with the magic sword. Go to the discovery of the treasure, only the book of magic can take you there …
Go on an adventure in a fantastic world made of snow and ice for an unforgettable visit, certainly the most “cool” moment of the year. At the Ice Bar, literally consume an invigorating hot drink in the rocks. Shiver with pleasure, nose and red cheeks guaranteed. Do not forget your hat and mittens, as the temperature in the ice palace is permanently below six degrees Celsius. Hot clothes highly recommended! »( Http://www.icesculpture.be )
