Ice castles return to Stillwater, MN in this must-see winter wonderland where fairy tales are brought to life with twinkling lights, magnificent archways and towers, ice-carved tunnels, fountains and slides ready to be explored. By day this frozen castle glimmers with glacial blues and after dark the ice formations create a magical glow.

For the 2nd year, the Ice Castles will be located in downtown Stillwater in Lowell Park along the riverfront. Starting January 8 through March 31, come see this beautiful castle and plan to stay overnight at one of the many local B&Bs to further explore Stillwater’s historic downtown shopping, dining, night life, and family fun.

Stillwater is located just 35 minutes straight east of Minneapolis (The Host of Super Bowl 52) on Hwy 36.
