The Old Rectory


Weissensee is probably one of the most popular skating lakes in Europe. An ice expert and his team look after the circular skating rinks (up to 25km long).



At the end of January, 5,000 guests, among them the world’s best marathon speed skaters, will gather here to take part in the speed skating contests over 50, 100 and 200km. For the less ambixious the locals also provide small lake side huts where you can stop and warm up with some food and a schnapps....

If the crowds are too much for you then Afritzsee offers a relaxing and care free day out skating. (above video)
