Romantic ice skating in the Town Hall Square

The largest mobile ice rink in Europe: the Vienna Ice DreamIce skating at the town hall square

Ice skating in Vienna is a particularly spectacular experience at the very beginning of the new year. In January, the small Ice Dream rink, which provides fun for all during the Advent period, makes way for the larger Vienna Ice Dream. Then it’s time for both young and old ice acrobats to frolic about as much as they want on the vast expanse of ice in the Town Hall Square. Four ice rinks cover a total area of 9,000m², along with a fairy-tale Path of Dreams and the Sky Rink – a terrace ice rink reached by means of a ramp. Your fun is guaranteed as you spend happy hours on your skates exploring the range of options!

Pure winter romance: ice skating in Vienna

Whether you are on a winter holiday with the family, travelling with friends or as a couple, ice skating in Vienna’s Town Hall Square is always a special experience. Vienna’s imposing town hall and the ice-skating rinks are always brilliantly lit, and sparkling chains of festive lights along the Path of Dreams add to the romantic atmosphere. The musical accompaniment consists of a combination of contemporary hits and waltzes, which also add to the delightful mood on the ice. Younger skaters and beginners can feel their way on the smaller ice rinks and may even wish to take a cute little “penguin” or “panda” to help them on the ice. While the beginners are taking their first steps on the ice during the day, in the evening the ice is given over to the sport of Bavarian curling.

You can thoroughly enjoy your skating experience at the Vienna Ice Dream even if it’s a spur-of-the-moment decision. Simply hire suitable skates on site and head out onto the enormous expanse of ice. If you get hungry along the way, numerous stalls and a two-story Alpine hut are well-equipped to help. Full of renewed strength, you will then be ready for another lap or two on the ice.

Your central hotel for a magical winter in Vienna

Only a short winter stroll separates the Vienna Ice Dream in the Town Hall Square from your hotel, The Harmonie Vienna, in the 9th city district. After some enjoyable laps of the skating rink, you will be looking forward heading back to your comfortable room to relax and thaw out in the stylish ambience. The hotel’s pillow selection ensures the perfect conditions for your snuggly moments. Once you’re supplied with plenty of pillows, you’re all set to enjoy a dream-filled night in Vienna in winter.
