Modern ice and event arena with impressive
panel works opened in Visp.
In the Valais community of Visp, a new ice hockey arena adorns the townscape. After an intensive 18-month construction period, the Lonza Arena was officially opened in time for the start of the 2019/2020 ice hockey season. For the 35 million Swiss franc project, codex products were used for the laying of the tiles over an area of 2,500 m²
So far, the ice hockey club Visp has played its home games in the Litternahalle. But this hall has become quite old and it did no longer meet the safety requirements of the Swiss Hockey League. With the Lonza Arena, the municipality of Visp has received a new event hall tailored to its needs, with space for around 5,000 people. The arena was built to the Minergie standard for ice rinks and has a very innovative ice technology system. The modern and bright hall will serve as home base for the EHC Visp from the Swiss League and will further be used for public ice skating.
