Essen. Ice skating fun for the whole family: Already for the fifteenth time, the water basin in the former pressing machine rail of the colliery Zollverein changes into the 150m long ZOLLVEREIN® ice rink, this winter. From the 3rd of December to the 8th of January 2017, visitors can skate along the impressing coke ovens, rust red pipes and high chimneys.
On an additional 180 square metres large surface, families and friends compete against each other during curling matches on weekends as well as during the holidays.

In the past, the colliery Zollverein, baked coal to coke at more than one thousand degrees Celsius.
Today, it is 'probably the most fascinating place for ice skating nationwide', according to the travel magazine Marco Polo. In the past years, the ice rink had around 30.000 visitors per season. Stalls in the small winter village take care of the ambiance. Here, skaters are able to fortify themselves with hot drinks and snacks. When night falls, a very special atmosphere awaits the ice skater, when the industrial architecture shines in red and blue light.
