Curling in Munich: Where is it fun? - Went out
Winter is here and so you can enjoy another outdoor activity in addition to ice skating, drinking mulled wine and snowball fights: curling!
Similar to normal stick shooting (only a little more fun), this is also shot with sticks, which are usually made of pear or maple wood. They are fitted with a wrought-iron ring and a wooden shaft made of birch or ash. They are usually shot on frozen ponds, lakes or even on ice rinks.
You can find out where the most fun is to be had in Munich here. Many cable cars are even open until January and February, depending on the winter weather. Let's go there!
Even though there are a thousand things to discover at Tollwood, you also have the opportunity to go curling there. It's even totally sustainable: at Tollwood, the lanes are not powered by electricity or water. What's more, curling fun is possible whatever the weather, as the curling rinks are covered. Bookings can be made online as usual: if you wish, you can even book a curling pro for personal advice.
Anyone who thinks that the Hirschgarten is only worth a visit in the warmer seasons is mistaken: you can also rent your own ice rink here with a group of up to 10 people and put your skills to the test. You and your friends can hire the right equipment on site for a small fee. You will also be provided with drinks and food at the nine natural ice rinks. And if it gets a little too cold, you can warm up again at the ovens. One hour costs 30 to 35 euros, depending on the day of the week. The rink is open until at least 19.03.2023.
The Bellevue next to the Nordbad is once again hosting the Eisstock-Winterzauber. Here you will find an artificial curling rink on the terrace with cozy seating, a fire bowl, heating mushrooms and bar tables. You can improve your curling skills and have a good time until mid-March 2024. If it does get too cold, the restaurant offers delicious food that is guaranteed to warm you up quickly. The cost of the ice rink is 20 euros for half an hour. Reservations can be made directly at the restaurant.
During the colder months, the crew of the old Utting invites you to enjoy a cozy get-together with friends and family while playing Munich's favorite winter sport - curling. Whether you're with friends, family or colleagues, the curling rink is a great place to spend some convivial hours. Without prior knowledge or years of training, you can book the rink for an hour plus equipment. Price information and booking can be found directly on the website of the old Utting.
This year, Minna Thiel also invites you to go curling during the frosty months. The Minna Thiel atmosphere awaits you, which you can experience together with 12 people directly on the curling rink. During a 30-minute time slot, you will be offered the following: eight curling sticks in two different colors and a stave (the target). This may sound complicated. Don't worry, you don't need any previous experience.
Curling above the rooftops of Munich? That's always special and can be done on the rooftop of the FITZROY Bar in the Werksviertel district. If you don't know the bar yourself yet, you should definitely pay it a visit with your friends. The ambience is urban-chic and you have a wonderful view of the glowing Umadum all the way to the Allianz Arena through the large window front. The curling rink can be booked daily in good weather and costs €99 for 45 minutes including 10 curling sticks. You can book online and pay at the bar. So grab an ice-cold or hot drink and off you go on what is probably Munich's highest curling rink.
Lake Christmas im Olympiapark
In the Olympic Park, you can now not only go for a spin on the pedal boat, but also work on your curling skills. You can play together with up to 10 people on two lanes (if one is not occupied by the fitness program), 45 minutes cost €35. Particularly suitable for beginners, as you are not on real ice but on solid ground. This means you always have a firm footing and can hone your technique. Furthermore, ice sticks are available in two different weights, so you can choose between a light and a slightly heavier one. And if all that doesn't help, the Lake Christmas team have told us: You get better with every sip of mulled wine!
We love the Park Café for extended brunch sessions with live music, but do you also know the Winterbiergarten? This year, the outdoor area is back in the Christmas spirit - the rustic alpine hut, the mulled wine stand and, above all, the mobile curling rinks are already waiting for you (and your entourage)! There is room for up to ten people to play at the same time - one hour's play costs €39, the curling sticks are available for €5.50. It's best to book in advance at www.winter-biergarten.de!
At the Container Collective, you can not only watch the Christmas hustle and bustle at the top of the Transit Bar, but also enjoy some sporting action on the curling rink with a mulled wine flat rate. You and your friends can conveniently book the rink online, including catering, and it can be used by a group of 8-10 people. The equipment is rented out so that you don't have to bring anything with you. Participation costs 9.90 euros per registered person and the course is yours for 45 minutes, open every day from 11 am to 10 pm. If you want to play for longer, you can indicate this online. We think the surroundings are unique! So, fun and a special time are guaranteed.
