Ice Skating in Hamburg’s EisArena
Practice your skating techniques this winter season and feel like a kid again at one of Germany’s biggest artificial ice skating rinks! The EisArena in Hamburg is one of the most popular ice skating rinks in the city and will help put you in the festive mood ahead of the national holiday.
Skating in the Planten un Blomen Park
Located in the middle of the Planten un Blomen park, this outdoor ice skating rink is larger than three ice hockey fields combined! Offering plenty of space for everyone from young to old, the ice skating rink is the ideal family day out. Visitors are free to bring their own skates or rent a professional pair for 6 euros, and there are walkers on-site for the littles ones to use.
If you are not too steady on your skates, then come by the rink on Wednesday afternoons at 4.30pm, when Vice European Champion Heinz Germerhausen offers training to all! Visitors can also try their hand at curling, a fun winter sport in which you try and shoot the curling sticks as close to the target as possible.
Enjoy outdoor ice skating in Hamburg
After spending a few hours exercising on the ice, why not warm up with some mulled wine, German beer or traditional dishes at the cafe? There is also a bigger restaurant in the park with regional specialities, if you’ve really worked up an appetite after skating.
EisArena also offers special deals for larger groups like companies and schools, with optional catering, as skating is a great way to bond and increase group morale. Just for the ladies: there is a special night every first and third Thursday of the month, with a complimentary drink. What’s more, every Friday and Saturday night is Club Night on the ice, with a live DJ playing the best tunes from 7pm onwards.
Visiting EisArena Hamburg
The perfect winter activity for everyone, whether you are a beginner or a professional, EisArena is open daily from 10am to 10pm. For more details on ice skating in Hamburg’s Planten un Blomen park, head over the EisArena website.
EisArena has made some changes this year, to ensure skating on the ice is safe for everybody. As far as possible, facilities have been moved outdoors. There will be no mask requirement on the ice, but visitors are kindly requested to wear one in the toilets and when queueing.
