So here we are … spending the last day of holiday at Scheveningen.

Our Sunday morning started with a fantastic breakfast overlooking the Scheveningen Pier. (See previous blog post)
After that, we decided to take a stroll down the boulevard embracing the brisk winter air and to see what is the Cool Event Scheveningen all about.

First stop, the Kurhausplein.
We huddled around the covered 600 m2 ice skating rink situated in front of the famous Kurhaus Hotel. There were many young and old skating round and round enjoying themselves. We stood there for a while admiring the crowds. My kids had no interested at all.
For your information, the rink is open every day from 10am to 10pm. Admission costs €5.00 per person and ice-skates are available for hire for €5.00 per pair. Gloves or mittens are mandatory for safety issue.

Next stop, Roetsjbaan.
It is basically a cool 30 meter long “Ice Slide” located right next to the Scheveningen Pier. You can glide down the slippery ice 5x on an inflatable for €3.50. My kids had a blast!
Roetsjbaan is open daily from noon to 6pm. Do note that the minimum age allowed is 5 years old. Helmets will be provided of course.

Last but not least, the Ice Expo Scheveningen.
It is an ice sculpture exhibition with the theme ‘Tales of Steam & Ice’, housed in a huge tent on the beach next to the Pier. Admission costs €10.00 for adults and €5.00 for children. We decided to skip this exhibition as it would be too costly for us. But starting tomorrow, tickets are 50% off at the door!! (Source: their Facebook post)
The exhibition is open seven days a week from 10am to 7pm. Free entry for kids up to 3 years old.


I believe Cool Event Scheveningen is a yearly family-friendly winter wonderland event during the months of November till January.
The Ice-skating at Kurhausplein is happening now until 20 January 2019. The “Ice Slide” and Ice Expo Scheveningen are on-going until next weekend, 13 January 2019.
