Bavarian curling – ICE MAGIC Interlaken

The unique group experience in the heart of Switzerland

A unique, exciting group experience awaits you at the ICE MAGIC in Interlaken. Who will manage to slide their Bavarian curling stone closest to the “house”, the target, and catapult their opponent’s stone out of the target area? It’s a game that will ensure that you and your team mates enjoy plenty of fun. Be careful not to let the impressive mountain scenery of the Bernese Oberland distract you too much from your game!

  • Perfect for your company outing

  • Three Bavarian curling sheets, each suitable for up to eight players

  • A fantastic winter experience, whatever the weather, thanks to the covered rink

  • Perfect evening activity after a day trip to the mountains

Information about the continuation of ICE MAGIC

According to the Communal Council of Interlaken, a revision of the concept and a radical cost reduction is required to ensure the financial viability of the ICE MAGIC in the medium term. There is a lack of financial resources for the realisation of the ICE MAGIC within the known framework. It needs a change - innovation. In this case, innovation can mean an adapted continuation of the event. At the moment, however, the indications are that an alternative innovation will take place.

New ideas and innovative alternatives are being examined. Locals and guests should be able to look forward to an illuminated and lively Interlaken in the coming winter.
