Three new rooms
During spring 2019 three new rooms were carved out in the ice tunnel - now measuring 375 square meters! The rooms were shaped and light set by the artist Peder Istad, and are called The Diamond, The Climate Archive and The Globe. A solar panel and a wind turbin makes the tunnel self-supplied with energy.
