‘Ice Work! World’s biggest igloo built in Zermatt

The last snowy brick of World’s biggest igloo has been laid in a beautiful location looking out to the Matterhorn mountain in Switzerland. The record breaking attempt took place at the Swiss Alps resort of Iglu-Dorf in front of Matterhorn, situated in Zermatt at an altitude of 2,727m.

The maginficent icy home broke the world record with an impressive 11m high ceiling and 13m wide. It took a total of 1,700 snow bricks, 11 days and a team of five to complete the construction. The giant igloo was built to celebrate the resorts 20th anniversary.

The previous record holder of the largest igloo was built in February 2011 in Grand Falls, Canada, with a diameter of 9.2m and a ceiling height of 5.3m.
