Berlin Icebar Polar Expedition

Discover a world made out of ice at the heart of Berlin. Do you have what it takes to brave the cold and explore the Arctic?

Once you step across the threshold of the Berlin Icebar you’ll be transported to a tavern in Bremerhaven. Here you can meet your fellow crew members and share an included drink before the captain calls you to board the Hansa.

When you are armed against the cold with a warm jacket and gloves, you’ll enter the actual icebar. As the ship gets stuck in the ice it is time to abandon ship and step into the icy world of the Arctic. Enjoy two more included drinks, this time from glasses made of ice, while you try to stay warm.

  • Drink from glasses made of ice
  • Kept at a constant -10°C
  • Stay warm with provided winter wear and included drinks
Public transport
Nearest stops are Hackescher Markt (S-Bahn S3, S5, S7 & S9) and Museuminsel (U-Bahn U5).

The real Hansa crew left Bremerhaven on 15 June 1896 in the presence of King Wilhelm I and Chancellor Bismarck. Only one month later the ship ran into pack ice and got stuck a little more every day. As the ice crushed the ship, the crew abandoned ship and took shelter on an ice floe where they had limited supplies and were under threat from polar bears. A year after they left Bremerhaven the surviving crew made it back to land.
