The Christmas Ice Rink
Since 1999, the Liège Christmas Skating Rink has been a perfect part of the end-of-year festivities with a very wide-ranging programme of events, developed under the concept of "Liège, City of Christmas" (skating rink, village, European Circus Festival, puppet festival, concert at the Cathedral, etc.).
Installed for 5 weeks on the Place Cathédrale, the most animated commercial heart of the City of Liege, it gives all the regulars of this privileged meeting place the benefit of a special animation and illumination and welcomes, each year, more than 20,000 skaters!
The ice rink is installed on the current site of the parterre of the Place de la Cathédrale, with a surface area of 30m x 18m, or 540m².
During each skating session, the ice rink can accommodate +/- 250 people.
Protection of the ice rink
To protect itself from bad weather, the rink is entirely covered by a 1000 m² "roof" (40 X 25 m).
