About Eisbahn

Since 2008, Eisbahn has become an integral part of the Christmas season in Fredericksburg and the Hill Country. Eisbahn attracts hundreds of visitors, skaters, and spectators from local communities and metropolitan areas who come to Fredericksburg to share in our town’s holiday spirit. Last year we welcomed more skaters than ever, and this year we are anticipating to break previous records! For many families, Eisbahn has become an annual family holiday tradition.

One hundred percent (100%) of the families at Heritage School volunteer to work Eisbahn. It is only through family volunteerism that Eisbahn is successful year after year. A portion of the proceeds from Eisbahn is donated to two great causes: Lifeline Foundation supporting (cystic fibrosis research) and the Boys and Girls Club of Fredericksburg. In addition, Eisbahn contributes to needs-based tuition assistance for qualifying families at Heritage School.


How do I schedule a private party?
To schedule a party, please contact Kathy Ferrier at 830.733.7996.

Can we rent Eisbahn for a private party?
Yes, but only outside of normal operating hours. The minimum charge is $350 which includes skating for up to 25 people and lasts for 2 hours. Once the rink opens to the public, you are welcome to continue skating. Additional people over 25 guests will be billed at the regular day rate of $15 per person. For example, the fee for 35 guests at a private party would be $500.

Can I skate for a while, leave for lunch and then return later in the day?
Yes, your stamp pass is good for one whole day.

Do you get a discount if you have your own skates?
Unfortunately, no.

Do you sell season passes? 

No. As this is a charity event, we do not offer season passes, but we do offer 10 day passes for $135 which saves you $15.00! These can be purchased at the rink.

Is there anything to eat or drink at the rink?
Definitely! Each year we offer a variety of concessions including items such as pizza, candy, sodas, and hot chocolate.

I would like to give skate passes as gifts or stocking stuffers. Is there anywhere I can buy them?
Sure! You can always buy passes at the rink, and they do make great gifts!

Can we bring our own music to be played while skating?
To ensure that Eisbahn is in keeping with the theme of the St. Nickolausmarkt, Eisbahn plays traditional Christmas tunes and fun upbeat seasonal music. No other music is permitted.

Is there a minimum age for skaters?
All-age children are welcome. However, all children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

All those taking part in Eisbahn expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity.
