The “Eiszeit” offers

Ice stock sport

Ice stock sport

Ice stock sport is a winter activity with a high fun factor! During the “Eiszeit Emden”, groups can put their ice stock sport skills to test on the rink which now boasts three ice stock sport lanes. Professionals and novices alike are sure to get their money’s worth.

The beauty of ice stock sport is that anyone can take part in the game. You don’t need any special knowledge, skills or equipment. Before the game starts, there is a short briefing and then you go out onto the ice with sturdy shoes. Shoes with heels or spikes are not allowed! The basic idea of the game is to slide the ice stocks as close as possible to the puck. The game is decided not only on the basis of concentration and precision, but also through tactics and enjoyment of the sport. Thus, the best throws of one team can still be ruined thanks to the last throw of the other team.

Book now


A real highlight for all ice stock sport fans is the EZ-Eisstockmasters. No matter if it’s family, colleagues or friends – groups of 4 people can compete for victory with skill, precision and team spirit. Due to its enormous popularity, the maximum number of participating teams is limited. Therefore, make sure you get the chance to participate. Register quickly using this form.

1. Can one do ice stock sport in rainy weather?

Absolutely. As our ice rink is located inside the Nordseehalle, we are quite unaffected by the weather outside. The ice stock lane and various other rinks are therefore ready to use at any time.

2. When is rink maintenance and how long does it last?

As a rule, rink maintenance takes place as needed. In order to guarantee optimal ice quality, all through the day, the ice master is the person who decides on the exact time of ice maintenance. Depending on how much abrasion there is on the ice, ice maintenance takes about 25 minutes. Usually, rink maintenance is undertaken daily at 13.30 and 17.30.

3. Can one skate even if it’s 20 degrees and sunny weather?

Cooling hoses under the ice surface ensure that you can skate even in warm temperatures. We have been working with energy-saving refrigeration technology for years. Vapour and heat are drawn out of the rink area through the ventilation flaps without energy consumption. LED lamps prevent additional heat build-up.

4. Can skates be sharpened on site?

We have our skate expert “Oltmanns” on site who can give every skate the right profile and who offers a professional sharpening service. Every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 15.00 – 18.00 you can have your skates sharpened for a fee of 15,-€ per pair (figure skates or hockey skates).

5. Is there a possibility to lock my valuables while I use the skating rink?

Yes, this year you will find lockers in the changing area next to the ice rink where you can lock your valuables for a fee of 1€. ATTENTION: This is a usage fee (i.e., not a deposit) that is charged per lock. The vending machine does not change money and does not refund money.

6. I have lost something at the “EISZEIT EMDEN“ in the Nordseehalle. What do I do next?

Lost hats, scarves and gloves can often be found at the lost property section at the cash desk. Since quite a lot accumulates over a period of about 5 weeks, lost property is regularly brought to the office of the Nordseehalle. If you have lost an object of value, please ask the “Eiszeit” team at the cash desk if it was possibly handed in there. No liability is assumed for lost clothing/valuables.

7. How can I borrow an ice walker?

Our ice walkers are in very much in demand especially at peak times on weekends. Unfortunately, it is not possible to reserve the ice walkers in advance. The motto is “first come, first served”. We would like to expressly bring to your notice that it is not permitted to exchange the ice walkers on the ice or to pass them on to other visitors. The ice walkers are to be rented out from the rental desk for a fee of 1.00 euro per hour plus deposit and returned there.

8. Can I also find you on social media?

Yes, we have a Facebook page where we keep our fans up to date with the latest news. You can also find us on Instagram. We look forward to welcoming our visitors!

9. . I have further questions. Can I send you an e-mail?

Of course! You can reach us at info@eiszeit-emden.de
