ICE MAGIC – Interlaken’s unique skating experience

Skate across the ice and warm up with a drink in the Winter Lounge

Some extravagantly lit runways and a variety of ice rinks await you on the Höhenmatte in the centre of Interlaken. Whether you fancy a game of Bavarian curling or a round of mulled wine or punch, ICE MAGIC is a winter experience that has it all.

ICE MAGIC Interlaken has to skip its 2022/23 season due to the imminent power shortage

With a heavy heart, the association “Chance Winter” decided not to realise ICE MAGIC Interlaken 2022/23 due to the imminent power shortage.

Interlaken’s unique skating experience

A first-class skating experience right in the heart of Interlaken. Bring your own skates or hire a pair at the venue. Put on your skates on in the changing room and place your valuables in a locker and then you're ready to go. Skate from the main ice rink along magically lit runways to various practice rinks.

Happy children’s smiles

The ICE MAGIC offers the very best in entertainment for your children. On the children’s and soft hockey ice rink, which is open daily until 15.30h, skating aids are available for first-timers on the ice. Bring a helmet so the children are better protected on the ice. Need to take a breather? Relax and warm up in the Winter Lounge.

Bavarian curling combined with dinner at the Swiss Chalet Restaurant

Fancy a game of Bavarian curling with your work colleagues or friends? From 16.00h you can reserve one or more lanes for a game of Bavarian curling. Ideally, a team of four players competes against another four in the same lane. The two teams try to slide their stones closer to the target than their opponents. You don’t need any previous experience to play the game. Bavarian curling is fun and encourages team spirit. Why not follow your sporting exertions with an all-you-can-eat raclette, a cheese-topped rösti or a delicious cheese fondue in the Swiss Chalet Restaurant? The cosy wooden chalet exudes conviviality and charm.

Best entertainment in the heart of Interlaken

The Winter Lounge plays host to a variety of events. Celebrate to the sounds of a DJ. In the lead up to the festive period, Interlaken offers visitors a multifaceted Christmas experience called “Winterzauber”. In December, combine your visit to the ICE MAGIC site with a Christmas shopping trip or a stroll through the Christmas market. Admire the enchanting lights and tasteful decorations on the stalls of the Christmas market and in the windows of the local shops. The big Christmas tree at the entrance to ICE MAGIC creates a Christmas atmosphere all of its own.
