One of Wiesbaden’s highlights in the pre-Christmas period is the “ESWE-Eiszeit” located only a few steps away from the Twinkling Star Christmas Market.
This year again the motto for the “Eiszeit” at the Warmer Damm behind the Hessian State Theatre is: “On with the ice skates and off we go!”. The public ice-skating rink is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. In addition to the approx. 800 sqm ice skating rink, three curling rinks are available again this year. And as every year there are already bookings for professional, but hopefully other light-hearted matches. The curling rinks can be easily reserved for an afterwork game between colleagues only at the curling rinks itself.
The nicest view of the city meets the most delicious food from the earthenware pot (local dialect: Dippe) and barrel at the Ferris wheel with its Hessian winter tavern – daily from 26 November 2018 until 13 January 2019. Roasted almonds, gingerbread, punch. There are certain smells and tastes that go hand-in-hand with Advent and evoke perhaps forgotten but fond memories. This range of winter pleasure is now enhanced by Handkäs (marinated handmade cheese), Äppler (apple wine) and the most delicious food the earthenware pot and barrel have to offer.Because once again this year the Hessian winter tavern awaits the visitors with traditional treats at the foot of the shimmering Ferris wheel in addition to the Christmas festive stands. The Hessian winter tavern brings that rustic, cosy feel that we all know from home into the centre of the city. “And that includes typical Hessian treats in addition to the usual Christmas delights” enthuse thrilled guests.
