All Press Releases for November 25, 2010 - Berlin Venue to Host Disney On Ice

Disney On Ice will take over Berlin's Velodrom from December 16th to 19th.

    BERLIN, GERMANY, November 25, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Families staying in Berlin hotels could be in for a pre-Christmas treat next month, with Disney On Ice due to arrive in the German capital on Thursday December 16th.

Taking place at the city's Velodrom, the event will bring Disney favourites such as Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Buzz Lightyear together for a memorable ice-skating spectacle that is sure to delight the audience.

The show is entitled Adventures in Disneyland and promises to take attendees on a magical journey through the world-renowned animation company's universe.

Disney has been thrilling cinema-goers since the late 1920s and to see some of the cartoon giant's most famous creations brought to life on the ice is an opportunity many people will not want to miss.

The show will also provide an opportunity for holidaymakers to visit one of Berlin's largest and most interesting venues.

Designed by celebrated French architect Dominique Perrault, the Velodrom was built to support Berlin's application to host the Olympic Games in 2000.

Although the city's bid was ultimately unsuccessful, the cycling centre was constructed at a cost of EUR138 million (GBP118 million).

It has become much more than an indoor cycling venue in recent years, with major music stars such as Gorillaz performing there this month.

The overall capacity of the Velodrom is 12,000 people, with enough fixed seating to hold more than 5,000 spectators.

Tickets for Disney On Ice in Berlin are priced between EUR9.45 and EUR37.25, depending on where people would like their seats to be positioned.
