Vienna Ice Dream

From January to March, Vienna city hall transforms into a winter fairytale with a 6,000m² lit ice-skating area.

Every year the square in front of the city hall in Vienna is turned into a 6,000m² ice-skating area. In the middle of the town, two large ice-skating rinks are connected by small paths that wind their way through the city hall park and under the trees, as part of the Wiener Eistraum.

Plenty of booths are scattered in between and around the rinks to warm skaters with punch and tea. You will also find plenty of local food specialties to fill the hole once you have burned off all your energy on the ice.

At night the entire square is transformed into a colourful sea of ​​lights, well worth witnessing even if you don't want to don the skates yourself. Open until 10 p.m. every day, the urban ice landscape provides a wonderfully central evening activity for the Viennese and city visitors of all ages throughout the winter months.
