Boy it's cold and slippery in here!

 

At the Jungfraujoch station are a few activities to entertain visitors. In the perpetual cool is the Ice Palace, a cavern carved from the ice of the glacier. Tunnels of glistening ice and sculptures fill the cavity, even sometimes a stairway into an upper chamber, lit by colored light in a translucent iridescence.

 

According to the advertising, pretty cool provided you didn't slip.
