Schaatsbaan: Ice skating at Kralingen in Rotterdam

The holidays are over and there's been no sign of a proper winter - certainly not enough ice for the legendary Elfstedentocht. But never fear: the Schaatsbaan Rotterdam is staying put until February 28 to see you right through until the end of winter!

The 400-metre covered ice skating track at the Kralingen in Rotterdam, better known as Schaatsbaan Rotterdam, is striking with its tunnel shape and ever-changing lights in all the colours of the rainbow. There’s also a smaller “Funbaan” for practising your skating skills and for taking part in a game of curling.

Skate at the rainbow-coloured ice rink

  • Date: From November 30, 2019, until February 28, 2020
  • Time: 9am-10pm
  • Where: Kralingen, Rotterdam
  • Tickets: 6,75 euros

You can bring your own skates or you can rent skates at the venue. If your own skates are looking shabby, you can even have them polished by the experts on the premises. You'll find lockers where you can store your personal belongings.

Schaatsbaan is regarded by many as one of the best ice rinks in the Netherlands and even got voted as the cleanest ice rink in the whole country!

Getting to Schaatsbaan Rotterdam

Schaatsbaan Rotterdam is located at Kralingen, which is easily accessible by public transport. If you're coming by car, there is a lot of parking - in fact, Schaatsbaan Rotterdam has its own car park with 350 spaces where you can park for free.

Get your tickets

Get your Schaatsbaan Rotterdam tickets online or at the entrance to the ice rink. Skate at the prettiest ice rink for as little as 6,75 euros per session or, if you feel like you might be likely to want to return multiple times, you can purchase a season ticket, which is valid up until the end of the season (February 28, 2020). 

If you're only coming to watch and hang around, you still need to buy a ticket. A spectator's pass is 3 euros, but it can be exchanged for a warm beverage at the bar!
