In Advent 2021, the internationally renowned light and event artist Gerry Hofstetter, together with Lucerne Tourism, brought Christmas and winter atmosphere to the heart of the city of Lucerne for the tenth time. At "Live on Ice", visitors could get into the Advent mood in an atmospheric ambience with fairy lights and Christmas sounds, while sipping mulled wine on the ice rink and gliding through the pre-Christmas season on ice skates. The ice rink was opened as part of a festive event with ice skating shows by the Lucerne Ice Club and a Santa Claus procession. Afterwards, the ice rink was handed over to the people of Lucerne. As every year, access to the ice rink was free of charge. Those who did not bring their own skates could rent them. Numerous skating enthusiasts from near and far made lively use of the offer, with broad laughter to be heard and happy faces to be seen time and again.
The next edition of "Live on Ice" will take place from 24 November 2022 to 1 January 2023.
