The success of the AMANDA neutrino telescope has shown that the ice sheet at the geographical South Pole is a suitable medium for optical Cherenkov detection of high energy neutrino interactions. Several thousands of atmospheric neutrinos have been recorded by AMANDA and the sensitivity for cosmic neutrinos has continuously improved. So far no cosmic neutrino signals have been detected. The deployment of the much larger and more sensitive IceCube neutrino observatory has started and nine out of 80 strings have been installed. This paper summarizes some of the results obtained by the AMANDA telescope and presents the status of the IceCube project.
