The eastern part of Austria is still waiting for snow and the real winter. But although it has about plus six degrees outside, there are some possibilities of practicing winter sport activities, like ice skating. Vienna offers diversifying places, ranging from indoor to outdoor ones with a unique view over the city.
The most special one is probably ‘Wilhelminenberg on Ice’, where you can skate in the palace garden of Wilhelminenberg, over the roofs of Vienna. You can enjoy this unique and gorgeous view until mid of January; it’s opened everyday until 9pm.
If you prefer a place more centrally located, visit the Viennese Ice Skating Union. It is located near Stadtpark, between Inter-Continental and Konzerthaus. The frozen surface is 6000 square metres big and the Union offers also teachers, courses or dance evenings. Moreover you can borrow ice skates there, if you don’t have your own. This ice skating place is open until the beginning of March, everyday until 9 or 8 pm.
The Ice Dream in front of the Viennese Rathaus offers a very special ambience. Beside ice skating and curling you can buy hot wine punch to warm yourself a little bit up. The whole Rathauspark turns into a paradise of ice, and a 415 metres long alley leads you through a winter fairy-tale. The Viennese Ice Dream opens on January 19th 2012, at 7pm starts the big opening evening. The ice skating park is open until March 4th.
There are also a few more great ice skating places in Vienna, visit and explore them – it will be a great experience! It’s also perfect for city travellers, because at most of them you can borrow skates and need not to bring your own.
