Until the 8th of March you can be part of this very popular event amongst locals. I am very much into sports but this one isn’t really made for me. However I’ve got to admit I’m fun to watch and I don’t mind, also the surrounding area is breathtaking itself. Beginners like me get a special area to practice for free, Monday to Friday 09:00 – 16:00.
More than 350 spotlights and music make sure you will get the real open air disco feeling on 7000m². Even live DJs are fulfilling music desires from 17:00 on weekdays and on weekends they actually start DJing at 14:00. But service doesn’t end here, 1800 pairs of preheated skates in sizes 23-52 are waiting for your feet as well as free helmets for your kid’s head.
Ice skating in front of Vienna’s city hall is a unique experience, most of the people I know love it. I like going there to take pictures of people in (up- or downward) motion.
Tip: If you you only want to skate for a little while go at 21:30, last minute tickets are sold cheaper for € 2.50.
