Open-air ice rink

Figure skating, ice hockey or curling: the open-air ice rink at Château-d'Oex is an icy pleasure to be enjoyed without moderation from mid-October. With the added bonus, a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountain range.

A great alternative to skiing, the open-air ice rink at Château-d'Oex welcomes you every day *, starting in the fall, to skate in a sumptuous setting, surrounded by mountain ranges.

Besides the simple pleasure of slipping on the ice, there is a wide choice available to you. Team sports enthusiasts will be able to practice hockey on a third of the surface of the rink **, while figure skating fans will benefit from skating aids (metal bars for beginners **) or group lessons for perfect their technique.

Another activity to discover: curling, a sport practiced for nearly a century in the Pays-d'Enhaut. Upon request, the local club organizes introductory sessions to discover all the intricacies of this game invented in 16th century Scotland and once reserved for the aristocracy.


* it is advisable to find out about the opening of the ice rink to the public on weekends, sometimes busy for events
** depending on weather conditions, it is therefore advisable to find out about the possibility of these alternatives beforehand
