Who doesn't like ice skating during winter? Or even a spot of roller skating?

In any case, if you and the children love to enjoy some quality time together ice or roller skating, these are the places you can go to, in and around Luxembourg.

I have also included information on which Christmas Markets in the area offer an ice-skating rink or roller skate rink this year.

As always enjoy and let’z TravelmatKanner.


Ice Rink Kockelscheuer

Probably the most famous location for Luxembourg residents, the Ice Rink in Kockelscheuer offers skating classes, ice-skating fun, birthdays and also disco parties where you can actually add little lights on the skates - it looks so magical.

Support for beginners also available.

All information is here.

Ice Park Beaufort

The Ice Park in Beaufort is open from 12 November 2022 to 19 February 2023.

A beautiful ice rink, classes are also possible. Support for beginners (penguins) available.

Ice karting is not possible this season due to energy saving measures, but all the fun is waiting for you under a unique tent roof.

Roller-skating Track at Winter Moments, Mamer

From 25 November, the festive market of Commune Mamer around Mamerschlass offers visitors a roller-skating track suitable for both classic roller skates and inline skates. You can bring your own shoes (roller skates, inline skates) or you can rent them on site in sizes 26 to 47.

Ice Arena Metz  

What is interesting about the Ice Arena in Metz is the events that are being organized.

For example there are snow storms, ice bowling, a laser show, pyjama parties (on ice?!) and more. Sounds... fascinating.

The aim of the association is to keep alive the love for roller skates.

Patinoire Amneville

Amneville is well known to families in Luxembourg and France, but maybe it is not so known, at least to expat families, that there is also a patinoire (ice rink) apart from all the other family friendly activities and experiences.

Patinoire Luneville

As well as hosting a nice castle, Luneville has an ice rink to enjoy during the winter months.

Ice Rink at the Saarlouis Christmas Market

The cute town of Saarlouis is normally missed as most people drive to Saarbrucken. However, it is a wonderful town to visit. This year during its Christmas Market it also features an ice rink.

Winterland Trier 

One of my family’s favourite festive ice rinks, and I am sure also yours, is at Trier Christmas Market.

As the team at Winterland Trier says:

"The new ice-skating season starts for you on Friday, November 25th, 2022 with the official opening of the 2022/2023 season. Lots of new things and lots of ice-related fun await you Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. The end of the season is on January 31, 2023, until then we look forward to seeing you.’’

We can’t wait to be there again!
