THE UITHOF ICE RINKS

1. LONG-DISTANCE SKATES

Our 400-metre track is one of the oldest artificial ice rinks in the Netherlands and certainly not the least! On January 2, 1973, the ice rink was officially opened. In 1989 a roof was built, making the course semi-covered. In the meantime, we welcome thousands of skaters every year even Kjeld Nuis of skating team Team Reggeborgh has started skating on our 400-meter track. The skating rink is open from October to April.
