Now a traditional feature of Advent in Graz, awaited with great excitement every year: the ice nativity scene in the Landhaus courtyard. Ice sculpture, light and the courtyard’s beautiful surroundings together create a magical atmosphere that is sure to leave all visitors in awe. The well-known ice sculptor Kimmo Frosti and his international ice-sculpting team will create a magical Christmas nativity scene out of ice in the Landhaus courtyard. Made with about 35 tons of crystal-clear ice, the crib is sure to be an amazing – if short-lived – work of art again this year.

Start of work: Fri, 25.11.2022
