Details of the ice rink
Weeks: December to March

Ice rink:
Length: 30 m
Width: 15 m
"We finally wanted to offer our population an uninterrupted skating experience in winter," says Johannes Jenewein, member of the municipal council, in a relieved manner.
The warm winters in valley Alpbach have been a real challenge in recent years. Even after many attempts, the natural ice rink in the "Ski Juwel Arena" sports facility in Alpbach could hardly be maintained.
Mr. Jenewein enthusiastically adds that the ice rink was incredibly well accepted by the population. During the 5 opening days per week, not only hockey players but also countless skaters came to the public skating and schools in the community used the space for sports lessons.
About the municipality Alpbach
The municipality of Alpbach is a village in the Tyrolean lowlands at the head of the Alpbach valley, a side valley of the Inn valley with about 2,550 inhabitants. The traditional building regulations as well as the maintenance of traditions distinguish this municipality. "For its efforts, the community received the awards "Most beautiful village in Austria" and "Most beautiful flower village in Europe", Mr. Jenewein proudly reports.
Thus, in addition to many traditional clubs such as the music band, fire brigade and the comradeship association, many sports clubs are active in the community. By installing the ice rink in the Alpbach sports facility "Ski Juwel Arena", the ice hockey club could also be reactivated.

The community is also known for the European Forum Alpbach, which welcomes thousands of congress visitors every year in August.

Objectives of the common project
  • Installation of an ice rink, which is available to the public during the winter months even with warmer temperatures
  • Guaranteed ice quality throughout the winter season
  • Positioning on the tennis court so that the existing infrastructure of the sports facility can now be used optimally in winter as well
    "Here, not only adults but also numerous children play enthusiastically ice hockey on the ice rink and the facility has been regularly used for public ice skating since the 2019/20 winter season", reports Mr. Jenewein enthusiastically.
