Alternative Dutch 11-Cities-Tour Weissensee

22 January - 3 February 2018
Every year in January, the world’s largest ice sport spectacle, the speed skating marathon, with over 3,000 participants in the disciplines 50, 100 and 200 km takes place at Lake Weissensee. The Dutch championships in speed skating and many other speed skating events for professional skaters also take place here. Great fringe events included.

Speed skating has been practiced in the Netherlands as an urban transport option and as a sport for over 230 years. Due to the fact that the canals and lakes in the Netherlands don’t always freeze any more, an alternative was sought and found at Lake Weissensee in 1988.

Ski before 9am with Franz Klammer

Skiing before 9 on three dates

Skiing “Emperor” Franz Klammer, still a star well beyond his Carinthian home region, will be taking to the slopes with “normal” skiers as part of a new promotion. On three dates this winter, the skiing before 9 with Franz Klammer, will start at 6.45 at the valley station of the Kaiserburgbahn, where Klammer will be waiting for guests and will also accompany them to a warm-up breakfast. From 07.30 to 09.30 the programme features free skiing with Klammer on the World Cup slope. This will be followed by skiing enjoyment part two: an exclusive brunch with specialities from the Adriatic-Alps cuisine in the Klammerstubn, which was created in the Kaiserburg mountain restaurant in honour of the idol. The promotion, which admittedly only experienced skiers should join in, will be accompanied by ski guides and costs € 125 per person, including breakfast and brunch, as well as a two-hour ski pass.
