Winter Sports Fun at Potsdamer Platz from 04/11/2016 to 01/01/2017
Every year in November, Potsdamer Platz turns into an alpine Winter World in the heart of the capital. Within view of Brandenburg Gate, winter sports fans can try Europe’s largest mobile snow tubing run or skate a few rounds at the ice rink. Bavarian curling is also on the programme. The ideal après ski ambiance is provided as well: Warm up with punch or hot spiced wine, and sample from a wide assortment of alpine specialties while swaying to party tunes at the Salzburg Schmankerl Hüttn. For a quieter atmosphere, the charming little Salzburg Stiegl Alm is the spot – quaint, cosy and just as delicious.
Free ice skating lessons are offered to children ages 4 to 7 by coaches from the Bundesstützpunkt Eislauf Berlin. Berlin schools can also reserve the rink for use as part of their sports programme.
