Parliament Square (Bundesplatz) artificial ice rink
21th December 2016 till 19th February 2017
In the winter, Parliament Square (Bundesplatz) becomes a playground for ice skaters. This artificial ice rink amid the unique setting of the Swiss parliament building is hugely popular with locals and tourists alike: every year, thousands of visitors lace up their ice skates and practice their turns on the 700m2 illuminated rink.
The ice rink restaurant warms cold feet and provides skaters with hot drinks and snacks. Entry is free of charge.
Ice skates are available for hire at the rink. The artificial ice rink is open 11:00-22:00 every day, at the weekend 10:00-22:00.
