In addition to the six winter worlds in Switzerland, the first igloo village opened up in Austria, namely in Kühtai near Innsbruck. The igloo villages are newly built from about 2,000 tons of snow each winter, and are located in Davos Klosters, Gstaad, Zermatt, on the Schilthorn, Stockhorn and Zugspitze mountains and now in Kühtai, a Tyrolean tourism destination. They function more or less as a “100 days hotel”. International ice and snow artists are responsible for the interior decorations of the igloo villages. For example, this year the Gstaad location takes guests to ancient Rome, whereas the people staying in the Zermatt igloo village are taken to the Alaskan wilderness in line with the motto “Out in the Wild”. One sleeps in the igloo on a bed made of snow, but this features soft padding using a foam mattress and also has warming sheepskins.
