Ice Skating

The natural and artificial ice rink in the middle of the village offers free enjoyment on ice from December to February.

This is where the youngest ice sports fans meet to be an ice princess or ice hockey player. Adults are also welcome. Rink time can be rented by the hour. Or one can just watch the local ice hockey club, the EHC Zermatt, while they train. No village without a natural ice rink: in Täsch and Randa one can also glide to ice enjoyment.

  • It is possible to rent the necessary equipment nearby.
