Something For Everyone!

Yes, you can! This event is open for everyone with good health. From newcomers to professional ice swimmers. If you are not professional you can easily start with 50m.

Ice swimming is a challenge for EVERYBODY!


Dear ice swimming friends,
after the premiere in 2019 and the second event in 2020, we are looking forward to host the third Zollhaus Open. The Landhotel Altes Zollhaus is located in – in the middle of nature – and offers an ideal location for this competition. We are situated at an altitude of 800 meters, which guarantees us a nice cold weather at the end of February. The starting signal will be given on 25.02.2023.
We also offer our participants a wonderful wellness area with 4 different saunas for warming up and we provide a bathing tub directly at the competition lake.
After the award ceremony there will be a closing party with a Sicilian buffet and pizza – original from the stone oven.
We are looking forward to you!
Gerrit, Aaron and Noah
