Icy pleasures…

Everything literally comes full circle every year in November… when the people of Wiesbaden flock to the 60 x 30 m ice rink for lots of outdoor fun and exercise. The evening ice discos are another attraction, featuring floodlights, lighting effects and a sound system.

The facilities are actually popular all year round, because they also attract inline skaters in the summer.

Due to the extended lockdown, the Henkell Artificial Ice Rink must remain closed permanently for the 20/21 season. As things stand today, the earliest the rink would be allowed to open would be February 1. However, due to weather conditions, the season ended at the beginning of March at the latest in the past years. Ideally, therefore, the outdoor ice rink could be operated for a maximum of five weeks. However, additional runtime cancellations, for example due to rain or snowfall, would have to be taken into account here.

“Even if we were able to reopen on 01.02.2021, which is currently very unlikely, the recent attraction in the winter areas has shown that we would not be able to control a rush on the ice rink in such a way that the safety of users would be guaranteed at all times” says Mayor Mende. “For the protection of all, we have therefore unfortunately decided against opening,” Mende continued.

“We have therefore decided with a heavy heart to end the season before it has begun,” said mattiaqua operations manager Thomas Baum. The installation of the cooling hoses, the preparation or constant maintenance of the ice surface are associated with an enormous cost and time. The same applies to dismantling and storage of the materials. “From an economic point of view, the commissioning is therefore not justifiable,” Baum continues.

Normally, the season runs from early November to mid-March at the most.


Cool facilities


The ice rink has a total area of 1,800 m² (60 x 30 m) – an outdoor sports haven for fans of pucks and pirouettes. The standardised facilities are also the ideal venue for winter sports clubs, such as ice hockey and figure skating teams, featuring a well-maintained surface, function rooms and floodlights.

The sports venue is an all-round popular meeting place in winter, especially for young people, thanks to its ice discos with pop music and lighting effects.

There are plenty of learning aids, such as penguins and gnomes, to help young skaters take their first steps on the ice.
