Every year in January, international artists create “Winter Art” - fascinating sculptures of snow and ice - in San Vigilio di Marebbe.

Every year artists from different countries meet in San Candido in the Alta Pusteria valley and - one week later - in San Vigilio in the Val Badia valley on the occasion of the International Snow Festival. The pieces of art can be admired until the end of winter season, when they start melting.
During this event artistis create very special pieces of art out of huge pressed snow cubes of 3×3×3 metres. The tools the artists use to work these snow cubes are hammer, chisels and saw, the 10 teams have three days to complete them. Afterwards the sculptures are rated and also illuminated in the evenings. Worth seeing!
