39th World Snow Festival

The World Snow Festival has developed into one of the most fascinating and popular winter events in the Eigerdorf Grindelwald and it is now hard to imagine the season programme without it. Every January Grindelwald invites you to the international snow festival on the Eiger+ North Face Square and Baer Square in the village centre. What began in 1983 with a giant Heidi carved out of snow by Japanese artists has since developed into a cultural event that the Eiger village no longer wants to miss.

Monday, 17 - Friday, 21 January 2022
Daily work on the sculptures on the Baerplatz and the Eiger+ Nordwandplatz in front of the Sports Centre in Grindelwald. Day after day, from Monday to Friday the teams will be working on their sculptures from around 8.00 to 17.00, during which time you can marvel at them.

Take the chance and win a great prize! Come by, visit the sculptures and vote, starting Thursday, for your favorite. The drawing for the winners will take place on Friday.

Monday, January 17 - Friday, January 21, 2022.
Every day, three ski resort teams will work on their sculptures on Männlichen. The teams will work from about 9.00 to 16.00 hours to form the impressive shapes out of only snow and ice.
