If ponds, streams and lakes are not frozen yet, you just have to help yourself out. Ice skating, hockey and curling is not only great fun, for many people they are actually a ritual in the cold season. For those who don’t just want to circle around in the hall, but also enjoy the fresh air, the ice rinks at the many locations in the greater Frankfurt area are a big highlight – fun on skids guaranteed! Anyone looking for an ice rink in FrankfurtRheinMain has the big choice:
From 20 November 2018 to 13 January 2019, the magical ice rink in the Kurpark will open its doors again. On over 500 m² of romantically illuminated, gleaming ice, the skates will be swung and ice sticks shot. Enjoy the historic winter ambience around the Kaiserbrunnen fountain between the Kaiser-Wilhelms-Bad and the casino as well as the events for young and elderly. If you need a little rest, how about spending the break in one of the Nordic chalets where sweet and hearty dishes alongside with hot and cold drinks are served. In case you prefer watching over being on the ice yourself you can follow the events on the ice rink from the directly adjacent viewing terrace while warming up with a hot drink.
Also from November 30th to January 13th on the Rathausplatz in Eschborn it is called “Ice skates on and off!“. Right in the city centre of Eschborn, all ice skating fans will get their money’s worth at the “Winterzauber”. It invites everyone to ice skate, take place in original competitions or simply enjoy a cosy get-together in a great ambience. Besides the ice surface, of course, huts, mulled wine, sausages, pepper nuts and co. provide a real winter feeling and are an excursion destination for the whole family.
Even the highest ice rink in the region has reopened. Above the grapevines and with a view of FrankfurtRheinMain, all skid kings and queens will once again be able to make their rounds at the Laubenheimer Hofgut this season. On 500 square metres of ice, all guests have the opportunity to make their rounds on the ice and sample the fresh mountain air. Afterwards you can warm up and recharge your batteries with mulled wine or non-alcoholic punch and delicious specialties.
An ice rink will also move to the Hessian spa town Wiesbaden, until mid of January 2019. Directly behind one of the city’s most important sights, the Staatstheater, lies the winter ice fun. For the 16th time ice skating fans will get their money’s worth in the middle of Wiesbaden’s city centre. Just a few steps away from the famous shooting star market, the motto is “ESWE Eiszeit”. Whether curling rink or skating rink: both invite young and old to have fun on the ice. Either for original competitions or simply for a cosy get-together in a great ambience! In addition, huts, mulled wine, sausages and the like also provide the culinary “ice age feeling”. Wiesbaden is more than ready for the friends of the cold season.
On skids into the New Year! The ice arena in Hanau will also open on January 4th, 2019. Not somewhere but right in the heart of the city, on the market square – at the feet of the famous sons of the city: the Brothers Grimm. It will remain open until February 3rd and promises lots of fun for both small and large skaters. A highlight of the Hanau ice skating season is the annual curling tournament. Moreover, if you feel like taking a break after skating, you can indulge yourself with sweet and hearty temptations and drinks directly at our ice arena at Uschi’s Creperie.
Where some time ago dozens of flowers were still blooming, it is now freezing cold – winter has arrived. The glazed, four metre high flower hall of the Landesgartenschau behind the Kurhaus has been transformed into an ice arena. Winter sports enthusiasts can let off steam here in any weather until January 13th, 2019. There is also a running school for beginners, as well as programmes such as ice hockey games or a traditional ice stick tournament. On Saturdays, there is also an evening event in the arena with lots of light and music. The rustic “Kufenstubb”, where local clubs offer delicious food and drinks, is a great place to warm up.
