Selfie Station

The newest addition to the ice this year is a rink side selfie station. For the first time ever you’ll be able to capture unique snapshots on the ice and take them home as festive souvenirs.

As you and your friends and family skate by, the automated kiosk will give you the option to freeze for a photo. When exiting the rink, you can purchase these as a festive keepsake – like a snow globe photo block! A magical way to capture your time on the ice or as a one-off gift to a special someone this year.

Food & Drink

Outside of the rink there are festive food stalls selling a selection of sweet and savoury Christmas treats including crêpes, waffles, hot chocolate, German sausages and gluwein.
