Glittering ice sculptures in various shapes have made Niagara Falls on the border between the USA and Canada a true winter wonderland. But even if it seems so: the waterfalls are not really frozen over.

vacationers from Canada and the USA are currently thrilled when they visit Niagara National Park. The reason: It seems as if the world-famous Niagara Falls have frozen over. Because of the enormous minus temperatures, the rising spray of the waterfalls freezes and forms ice over everything that surrounds the falls.

So it happens that branches of trees and railings are completely covered with a layer of ice. There are also numerous fascinating ice sculptures in the national park. But even if at first glance it might look as if Niagara Falls were completely frozen over, it is not.

“When I traveled to Toronto in 2018, of course I also had to make a detour to Niagara Falls. It was the beginning of March and really quite cold, I remember that the temperature never went above zero on any day. Nevertheless, after spending days in the metropolis of Toronto, I hadn't expected the winter wonderland at Niagara Falls. The combination of the gigantic amounts of water plunging into the depths and the magical ice sculptures that form on the sides as the water mist falls down like snow - it was just unbelievable and is one of the experiences that I have probably had for my entire life will not be forgotten.

Dass es in Skandinavien im Winter kalt werden kann, ist allgemein bekannt. Dass man am Öresund, der Meerenge zwischen Dänemark und Schweden, sogar Schlittschuhfahren kann, wohl weniger. Bei Sonnenschein und steigenden Temperaturen könnte das Eis jedoch bald dünner werden. Am kommenden Freitag soll das Thermometer auf acht Grad klettern, dann wäre dieser Wintersport vorbei. Niagara Falls are only completely frozen once.

The Niagara River of the same name falls at Niagara Falls, which connects the gigantic waters of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, 57 meters deep. An average of 3,160 tons of water per second flow down the falls. With these crowds, it's hardly surprising that it is technically impossible for Niagara Falls to freeze over completely. However, in 1936 there was such a cold winter that at least large parts of the cases were frozen, as reported by the “ Kurier ”.

In addition, there was a situation in March 1848 that Niagara Falls froze over - but mainly because their water supply was stopped. At that time the water-giving Lake Erie froze and through the ice dam no more water could flow into the Niagara Falls. The “leftovers” then froze completely, as reported by “ Golfnews ”.
