SkateSalon Ruhr

The Indoor Skating Rink for Skateboard, Longboard & Rollerskate

With the SkateSalon Ruhr, a new event concept will start in winter 2022 in the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum. Where until three years ago the EisSalon Ruhr attracted thousands of people to one of the most beautiful indoor iceskating rinks, an indoor skating rink for everything that has (4 small) wheels is being built on an area of ​​almost 5,000 square meters.

Not only will Hall 1, which is more than a football field long, become a skating rink, but there are also designated areas for inline skating, roller skating, skateboarding and longboarding in other parts of the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum. The offer is aimed at both beginners and advanced skaters.

The fact that the floor of the Bochum Centennial Hall is predestined for moving around on fast casters was already shown by Extraschicht 2022. Now it is developing into an independent event.

This and more awaits you at the SkateSalon Ruhr:

– 3 areas to let off steam on rollers:
Inline/roller skate area (approx. 1,300 sqm), longboard area (over 1,000 sqm), skate park (over 1,050 sqm)
– in addition, an extra practice area is planned for children, or those who are still a little wobbly on the rollers.
– lots of comfortable seating to chill and watch
– Rental of skateboards, longboards & inline skates
– Workshops to improve your skills
-drinks and snacks for the little hunger and thirst in between

Are you in the mood for wind and weather-protected (winter) skating in the unique setting of the Bochum Centennial Hall? Then please come by!
