This winter Scheveningen is again the place to be for the ultimate winter sport experience. From 12 November 2017 to 14 January 2018 The Hague's beach resort is transformed into a true winter wonderland called Cool Event with several activities.
Kurhausplein on Ice
In front of the famous Kurhaus Hotel you will find the beautiful 600 square metre covered ice skating rink. The skating rink is open every day from 10.00 to 22.00 hrs. Admission to the ice skating rink costs 5 Euro. Skates are available for hire.
Palace Fun Slide (from 2 december 2017)
A 2-minute walk from the ice skating rink through the Palace Promenade shopping centre will bring you to the 30-metre long ice slide 'Palace Fun Slide' on the boulevard. You can spend 20 minutes sliding down on an inflatable tire for a couple of Euro or purchase a combination ticket together with the skating rink.
Ice Expo (from 2 december 2017) On Scheveningen boulevard next to the Pier you can admire beautiful ice sculptures. From 2 December you can see how they are made. There are many exciting sculptures especially for the kids. Adults will be able to relax at the ice bar where you can sit on chairs made of ice and drinks from ice glasses. Admission costs € 10.00 for adults and € 6.50 for children.
A warm drink
Take a seat at one of the outdoor cafes (with heating) around the square and enjoy a delicious meal or glass of mulled wine or mug of hot chocolate. This winter the restaurants around the square are offering the Kurhausplein deal with meals and ice skating (including the skate rental).
Why not organise your children's party at Cool Event? After a couple of hours of winter fun on the ice skating rink, children can enjoy preparing their own meal in one of the nearby restaurants. They can flip pancakes at Toff or bake their own pizza with their favourite toppings at La Galleria Boulevard. There are also combinations possible with ice skating and a film or glow-in-the-dark midget golf. Just contact the organization of Cool Event Scheveningen!
Scheveningen is the most-visited beach resort in Holland. It offers a host of attractions, such as the Pier, SEA LIFE, Museum Sculptures at the Sea, the Circustheater and Holland Casino. After a refreshing walk along the beach, drop in at the restaurants and cafés on the boulevard and the year-round beach clubs to enjoy a delicious dinner with a view of the sea. SEA LIFE Scheveningen is a must for a day out with children. The Pathé cinema, Circustheater and Holland Casino guarantee a great evening out in Scheveningen. The historic city centre of The Hague is only fifteen minutes from Scheveningen beach!
