Small but nice: Grüningen Castle ice rink
In the castle courtyard on skates
Twirl around surrounded by the historic setting of the castle, with a view of the mountains and the surrounding area. Fire bowls and discrete lighting create a romantic atmosphere; the cosy castle bar provides "Glühwein" to warm up. A fireplace, outdoor fondue and raclette provide a special experience for young and old.

While school classes enjoy themselves on the ice in the mornings, everybody else is welcome to skate in front of the historic setting of Grüningen Castle in the afternoon. Animal skating aids to hold on to are available for children and for those who feel on shaky ground.
At dusk it will get really romantic on the castle ice rink when fire bowls are burning, the trees and the castle are discreetly illuminated and when you can see the lights of the surrounding communities while skating on the ice.
The castle bar not only offers light snacks, hot ice rink chocolate or ice rink coffee, in the evenings you are able to sit at the bar snug on cosy furs and enjoy fondue, raclette or a tasty soup along with Grüninger wine or beer from the area.
The castle ice rink is open from December to February daily from 1:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. - find more information under www.schloss-eisbahn.ch
