ice rink

For the second year in a row we are organising IJsvrij Park Festival and from the 30th of November 2018 until the 6th of January 2019 a romantic, roofed ice rink will appear in the middle of The Park by the Euromast. Lonely Planet ranked our ice rink in the top three of the most beautiful ice rinks in Europe and many visitors compare it to the rink in Central Park, New York. The ice rink will be bigger than you saw last year. You can also find an IJsvrij-Cafeteria on the ice where you can enjoy a mulled wine and a hot chocolate whilst wearing your ice skates. Take a spin on the ice with your whole family, a group of friends or co-workers and enjoy the atmosphere of this winter scene. You can also visit IJsvrij for a school trip, to celebrate your child’s party or to enjoy a drink with colleagues!

The IJsvrij-Café is a new addition to the IJsvrij Park Festival. We are trying to increase the temperature so you can warm up whilst enjoying a good meal or cup of mulled wine. It’s very cosy and there is a great atmosphere in the café. A game of cards with friends or bingo with the neighbours all contribute to this atmosphere. You can also come over for a drink after working hours. Snacks are always available, there are enough provisions to get through the winter and every weekend there is a programme filled with music, theatre and especially a good vibe.
