    News from Svalbard

    Dear Svalbard friends,

    The thresholds for entry quarantine requirements changed on 05 July 2021.

    Since then, harmonize Norwegian rules with European recommendations.

    COVID protected persons arriving from a "green" country no longer have an entry quarantine requirement. However, there are still some things to consider.

    Christian Bruttel and Marcel Schütz are on TV! (ZDF)

    13.12.2019

    Christian Bruttel and Marcel Schütz are on TV!

    On Christmas Day 2020, the show "Ausgerechnet Norwegen" was broadcast on ZDF.

    If you had to imagine the end of the world as a place, it would probably look a bit like Longyearbyen: Gray and white rocks surround the small community that is billed as the northernmost city in the world. Temperatures there rarely climb above freezing. Roads leading out of the city end after a few kilometers in the wilderness. Christian Bruttel (36) chose this of all places on the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard. He and his business partner Marcel Schütz work as "Arctic Guides". On kayak tours, they show vacationers the polar landscape. They themselves are always impressed by its beauty.

    Anniversary exhibition

    02.6.2016

    June 18, 2016 - August 20, 2016

    For twenty years, wood sculptor and draftsman Daniel Rohrbasser has been visiting the Arctic with his sketchbooks and his 6×7 SLR camera. The encounters he has had with nature and animals during all this time are powerful engines that sustain HIM in his workshop during countless hours at the drawing table and carving bench. His photographs are often presented in schools to inform young students, but also to motivate or simply to arouse interest in this unlimited but sensitive area of adventure. The wood sculptures are carved from his highly accurate studio drawings and depict the Arctic mineral landscape of ice, glacier and rock, crevices and cracks. In fragile lines almost always float some contours warning of the polar bear. His presence felt Daniel Rohrbasser on each of his excursions and this is experienced very strongly in his works again. Over the years, a close relationship has developed between life in the Arctic and Daniel Rohrbasser's work. This close relationship is now on display for you at Gallery Svalbard.
