Temperatures are declining below zero degrees and therefore, of course, you will get enthusiastic for the real Dutch experience, ice skating.
That is why SWU Thymos in cooperation with IxESN will go to Biddinghuizen, where a ice-skate rank is built, which gives you the closest feeling of skating on natural ice. As well, this ice-skate rank is famous of his length; it is the longest in the world. But don’t be afraid if you have no experience, there is also a round of 400 meters. For this experience we also arranged free lessons for those who need help with the first steps. So do you like to prepare yourself for the coming ice on the Rijn or even for the ‘Elfstedentocht’ (a famous event in the Netherlands), please subscribe!
Costs for this experiences are €11.00 if you have sports rights, €13,50 when you don’t have sport rights but have a ESN membership, and €15.00 if you don’t have the sports rights as well no ESN membership. If you don’t have ice skates yourself, you can rent them there for €7.50. Your subscription is complete when you have transferred the money to NL66 RABO 0367 0126 26 in the name of SWU Thymos, stating ‘name + ice skating’.
Please send an e-mail to swu.thymos@wur if you want a free lesson after subscription.
