  • We were 2 days ago in the Alpine Centre and have booked the crazy summer special, to bypass the long waiting time for the next season. For €26,-ski, admission, food and even drinks a absolute bargain. You can drink unlimited soft drinks and coffee, beer and wine, there is a card with 3 free drinks. The focus is clearly on the catering industry. Selection at the simple buffet generous, always fresh. There's even ice cream. Inside and outside beautiful views great set up, toilets new and always clean. The wars but also with positive impressions. Sporty seen the Hall only due to the nature of the departure is interesting. Bent and alternating gradient. But huge ice surfaces, 10 cm large chunks of frozen ice on the slope and a tough underground make it difficult for very one. And suffer the ski. On one side of the departure had probably warm water that dripped from the ceiling, melted a huge hole in the ground (20 cm diameter determined) and on the other side it slides across ice direction of departure. I don't understand why the Hall for beginners is recommended. In the upper part is the exercise area, the walls are not the padded, the traction rope is an imposition. The departure with 24% slope is "secured" only by a small counter slope on one side and by a slow banner on the other side. The obstacles to the Snowborder are difficult to discern at high speeds. Also at the bottom, nothing is cut padded. The tunnel, which runs the conveyor belt (magic carpet), is unkind and very Dowdy due to vandalism. The departure from the conveyor belt my opinion is rather for experienced skiers an imposition. Very steep, very closely and only made of ice. In addition, the Snowborder must also go through running. Controlled driving out is impossible. In the Hall, staff was to see at any time. Special visitors on the conveyor belt were via announcement called on to keep the safety distance (otherwise one above not... creates Yes exit), to knock off the snow on the band or other. Unfortunately without success, because on the next trip are the same people again on the band and make the same crap--and each time the tape stops. Our average travel time was 6 minutes downhill 1.5 2 min. This Apreskihits Dauerbeschallung... We have talked to an employee upon leaving and asked about these things. The opinion was, as few visitors worth's view not to provide personnel on the conveyor belt. The problem with the exit will be addressed again. In Landgraaf, we were at Whitsuntide and on the first weekend in July. The Hall was almost empty and still someone's on the lift stood above and below. The low price for this complete package has lured us. We had 3.5 hours journey and come back probably unfortunately also, although we went with high expectations or demands not to Bottrop. It should be urgently renovated and a solution found to the extreme icing. What a pity!

  • The ski Hall is ideal for beginners to ski or snowboard, there you must get driving experience without equal in the mountains can. Is a great preparation for the first ski vacation, especially if you also just taken a course. The artificial snow in the Hall was in a little disturbing the slow conveyor belt is well prepared. For advanced of course missing the variety, in a such a short runway. (somewhat more length and gradient offers the compared to other indoor ski halls). I can not rate the bond material. The food in the restaurant was okay during my visit without major break up or down. The staff kindly I remember.
