Active Vienna - Ice skating


Ice skating - Rathausplatz: Skate away in winter wonderland against the backdrop of the beautiful neo Gothic city hall building. Every year, from mid February to early March, the plaza in front of the city hall is transformed into one of the most scenic skating rinks worldwide. This year, the rink has been expanded in size to accommodate even more visitors. If you do not own any skates, you can rent a pair for 6.50€, or after 10 pm (the skating rink is open until 11 pm every day) for only 3€.
An adult day pass for 6€ is valid for multiple entries all day, so don't worry, you have plenty of time to skate off the hearty lunch/brunch you indulged in and even sip some hot gluehwein in between.
Albeit teeming with avid skaters big and small, ice skating at Rathausplatz is the most memorable at night when spotlights and music turn the venue into a romantic evening stage.
Hurry up, as the Rathaus skating rink will only be open until March 7, 2010.
