A welcome change to skiing and snowboarding - and perfect bad weather option for the whole family as they enjoy an afternoon on the ice rink. Some may opt for excitement with a game of chase or ice hockey, while others enjoy gliding round the rink at a more leisurely pace. However, the ice rinks are open to all, whether novices or pros, and you can choose your own tempo and preferred sport. In some places you can even have a go at curling or dance to the sounds of lively music in an ice-disco as you glide over the ice. Ice skates are conveniently available for rent in all sizes and places.
Every year during December, an ice rink is set up on Brig’s town square called Sebastiansplatz. For several years now, the artificial ice rink attracts visitors from the entire region as well as neighbouring cantons. From December to January, it transforms the Stadtplatz into a Christmas fairy tale in which everybody is welcome. The ice rink is open daily from 13:30. Ice skates are available for hire at the rink.
