From Jan 18 (OPENING with ice skating for free: 19:00-22:00!) until the 3rd of March you can be part of this very popular winter event, it will be much 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 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 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 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 € 4. And also, there’s a -10% discount if you buy your ticket online 😉
