European Speed Skating Championships 2012

On 6-8 January 2012 Hungary is hosting European Speed Skating Championships welcoming the very best speed skaters of our continent. This highly renowned international competition will not only promote skating, but also heighten Hungary’s image and further the development of young, talented skaters.


Location: City Park Icerink, Budapest

Close to 300 participants from about 20 countries are invited to the championships who will be accompanied by their fellow supporters.

The location of the European Championships is worthy of attention in itself. City Park Icerink built in fin-de-siecle style and now renovated by state-of-the-art technology is the largest open-air icerink of the world. It is a completely unique place to skate: on historical grounds, in the middle of a metropolis.

As the Director of the City Park Icerink says: − “Allocation of this European Championships to an open-air venue is highly significant, as this is a major recognition of traditional skating environments. The rink hosted a successful World Championships in 2001 and now we have a modern rink that allows us hosting a European Championships that will hopefully turn out a success.”
