Until the 12th of March you can be part of this very popular event amongst locals.
Cheaper prices until January 18th! 😉
The surrounding area is quite magical and plenty of stalls offer food and drinks while your cold feet might like the new chalets they set up. Beginners like me get a special area to practice for free, on weekends all day long and Monday to Friday 09:00 – 16:00. On weekdays, after 17:00, this ice field will transform into a space for ice stick sport fans.
More than 350 spotlights and music make sure you will get the real open air disco feeling on 8000m². Live DJs are fulfilling music desires from 17:00 on weekdays and on weekends they actually start playing 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 kids.
Ice skating in front of Vienna’s city hall is a unique experience, most of the people I know love it, while I like going there to take pictures of people in (up- or downward) motion.
Tip: If you only want to skate for a little while go at 21:30, last minute tickets are sold cheaper, for € 3.
