Since 2008, Eisbahn has become an integral part of the Christmas season in Fredericksburg and the Hill Country. Eisbahn attracts hundreds of visitors, skaters, and spectators from local communities and metropolitan areas who come to Fredericksburg to share in our town’s holiday spirit.
One hundred percent (100%) of the families at Heritage School volunteer to work Eisbahn. It is only through family volunteerism that Eisbahn is successful year after year. A portion of the proceeds from Eisbahn is donated to two great causes: Lifeline Foundation supporting (cystic fibrosis research) and the Boys and Girls Club of Fredericksburg. In addition, Eisbahn contributes to needs-based tuition assistance for qualifying families at Heritage School.
Eisbahn is open the Friday after Thanksgiving through New Year’s weekend. Bring your family and friends and join Heritage families at Eisbahn this holiday season.

Experience the nostalgic beauty of yesteryear this holiday season in Fredericksburg. Festivities will begin at 6:00 pm in front of the Vereins Kirche at Marktplatz with live entertainment. A short lighting ceremony and countdown will take place at 7 pm. Following the lighting ceremony, more holiday favorites will be played for your enjoyment.
After the lighting, Santa will make his way to the Oktoberfest Halle at Marktplatz where free cookies, hot chocolate and bottle water will be available. Children are invited to take free photos with Santa (bring your own camera) and groups are encouraged to take photos at the holiday selfie station. In case of inclement weather, all activities will be relocated under the Adelsverein Halle at Marktplatz.
