From Jan 22 until the 1st of March you can then be part of this very popular winter event, it will be even more so with the new two-floor concept: Sky Rink!
The surrounding area is magical, and lots of stalls offer food and drinks while your cold feet might like the new chalets they set up. Beginners get a special area to practice for free, on weekends all day long and Monday to Friday 10:00 – 16:00. On weekdays, after 17:00, this ice field will transform into a space for fans of Eisstockschießen (similar to curling).
More than 350 spotlights and music make sure you get the real open-air disco feeling on 9000m² of ice. Live DJs are fulfilling music desires from 17:00 on weekdays and on weekends they start playing at 14:00. But service doesn’t end here, 1800 pairs of preheated skates in sizes 23-52 wait 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: There’s a -10% discount for those who buy their tickets online. If half an hour of skating is enough for you, go at 21:30 because then it’s free 😉
