Ice Skating Experience with IxESN & Thymos

Temperatures are declining below zero degrees and therefore, of course, you will get enthusiastic for the real Dutch experience, ice skating.

That is why SWU Thymos in cooperation with IxESN Wageningen will go to Biddinghuizen, where a ice-skate rank is built, which gives you the closest feeling of skating on natural ice. This ice-skate rank is famous of his length as well; it is the longest in the world

But don’t be afraid if you have no experience, there is also a short round of 400 meters. For this experience we also arranged FREE lessons for those who need help with the first steps.

So, do you like to prepare yourself for the coming ice on the Rijn or even for the ‘Elfstedentocht’ (a famous event in the Netherlands), please subscribe HERE! Note: this website is in Dutch. You have to scroll down a little and click on: "Thymos/IxESN Schaatsen". Here it is explained that you have to transfer the participation fee (see prices below) to the bank account of Thymos. Please send them an email ( after subscription if you want free lessons. In case you have difficulties with the payment, please contact Thymos via email for any questions.

Hope so see you all!
