Top of Europe 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 curling or a round of mulled wine or punch, Top of Europe ICE MAGIC is a winter experience that has it all.

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 and through the colourful Coop ice igloo, then take a souvenir photo at the Photopoint.

Happy children’s smiles

The Top of Europe ICE MAGIC offers the very best in entertainment for your children. On the children’s 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. Would you like to play a game of ice hockey? The soft hockey rink is particularly popular with families. Need to take a breather? Relax and warm up in the Winter Lounge or the heated Lounge Tent.

Curling combined with dinner at the Swiss Chalet Restaurant

Fancy a game of curling with your work colleagues or friends? From 16.00h you can reserve one or more lanes for a game of 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. 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. Dance to live music or celebrate to the sounds of a DJ. The opening of the ICE MAGIC site and the “Touch the Mountains” celebrations on 1 January are particularly spectacular. 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 Top of Europe ICE MAGIC creates a Christmas atmosphere all of its own.
