Lake Piburger See
Ice Skating Rinks

Conquer the icy dance floor

Floating elegantly on the ice - even if this idea can't be put into practice a hundred percent right from start, ice skating simply creates a good mood. And after the first restrained attempts everyone will get enthusiastic very soon. In addition to the well-groomed artificial ice rinks, where team athletes can give curling a try, Ötztal also offers a breathtaking natural ice rink on frozen Lake Piburger See.

Ice Skating Piburger See Ötz

Gliding smoothly on ice skates

Atmospheric music for little stunts on ice, lit with floodlights in the evening, plus bistro or refreshments in the immediate vicinity - the ice skating rinks within Ötztal make a superb alternative to skiing or tobogganing. Ice skates are usually available for rent on the spot. Even the little ones can take part in this entertaining activity - thanks to funny plastic figures as skating aids. Highlight in Ötztal, weather permitting: the natural ice rink on Lake Piburger See in Oetz.

Ice curling and ice hockey team sports

Let the curling stone glide precisely on the icy surface. Not as easy as it sounds on the first try. If you like playing in a team, curling is the right activity. In contrast to ice hockey matches no equipment is necessary, except for the curling stone and target button. The more people, the more exciting is the tournament. By the way, why don't you treat yourself to a glass of mulled wine which tastes deliciously.
