Vienna Ice World


From 25 January to 10 March 2013, City Hall Square (Rathausplatz) will be transformed into a gigantic ice surface, making it a paradise for ice skating fans of all ages. The dreamily lit facade of City Hall forms the backdrop for the Vienna Ice World. The 7000 square meter surface offers ice-skating fans a fabulous landscape of ice. 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 fantastic ice path about 750 meters long will snake through the romantically lit City Hall Park. In addition, six curling rinks await visitors.

At various outdoor stalls and in the Almhütte, gastronomes pamper guests with culinary delicacies from around the world. Warming drinks are also available, of course, at the Vienna Ice Dream - from aromatic organic punch to hot tea. An opportunity to warm up is also provided by the special child and family friendly panorama tent, whose glass façades afford a lovely view of the ice skaters on Rathausplatz.

1,200 pairs of ice skates preheated with warm air can be rented on-site. On the opening evening (24 January), ice skating is free for all.
