Eisbahn ice skating rink to open for season Friday

Fredericksburg’s ice rink, Eisbahn, will return to town following the Thanksgiving holiday.

The rink, run by Heritage School volunteers, is set for Marktplatz begins Friday, Nov. 29 and continuing through the first weekend in January.

Hours vary throughout the season.

The rink is open from 4-8 p.m. Monday through Thursday during school weeks, 4-10 p.m. on Fridays and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays.

Sunday hours are 1-8 p.m.

Eisbahn is open on New Year’s Eve, with scheduled hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. If enough workers are available, the rink will stay open until midnight that night.

The hours for the final day of Eisbahn are 1-8 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 5.

The rink may be reserved for private parties any time it is not open to the public.

A full day, come-and-go pass is $15, and $10 every Tuesday of the season.

Concessions, such as hot chocolate, pizza and candy, may be bought near the rink.

Seating is available for those who would prefer to watch people skate rather than brave the slippery ice themselves.

Gift buyers are encouraged to consider skate passes as gifts or stocking stuffers.

Prospective skaters should call Kathy Ferriere at (830) 733-7996 if temperatures drop below 30 degrees to make sure Eisbahn is still open.
