Colorful tiles on the roof of St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna

Vienna Ice World

The dreamily lit facade of City Hall forms the backdrop for the Vienna Ice World. An ice surface over 7,000 m2 offers ice skating fans a fairy tale ice landscape. Skaters of all styles, from spirited and wild to sweeping and elegant, can glide around the rink daily from 9 am to 10 pm to the hits of the 80s and 90s as well as waltzes.

A dreamlike ice path winds its way through the romantically lit City Hall Park and is a full kilometer long this year. Four curling lanes are also waiting to entertain visitors. Seven restaurateurs will be on hand at various stands to pamper guests with crispy waffles, cheese spätzle, baked potatoes and other delicacies. Naturally, hot beverages are also available to keep you warm at the Vienna Ice World, from aromatic hot chocolates to hot tea. The new "Alpine chalet" now also offers an inviting setting for a warm-up break.

1,200 pairs of ice skates preheated with warm air can be rented on-site. On the opening evening (19 January), ice skating is free for all.
