Be surrounded by 69,000 kilos of ice and stay warm with provided winter clothing.  Meet your fellow crew members for a drink in the tavern before the captain rings the ship’s bell to board the Hansa. Assistants will make sure you are properly dressed for the freezing experience to come, as King Wilhelm I and Chancellor Bismarck see you off on your journey to the east coast of Greenland. When you enter the bar, you’ll receive a Seaman's Book, or Seefahrtsbuch, before you can take part in the Polar Expedition. The Seaman's Book documents you as a crew member of the Hansa.

Great fun activity to do whilst in Berlin. All members of the bar friendly and welcoming as soon as you arrive . Decent drinks , one on arrival in main ‘warm’ bar we chose a cocktail and two in ice bar, beer and a shot

Always cool to pop in an ice bar in every city I visit! And I have to say that the Berlin one is the best

Coolest experience in Berlin would highly recommend for something a bit different :)

Great place. We absorbed so much great history today, it was great to take a break.

I think the show was sold out, so it's a good idea to get tickets in advance
