We went to visit Das Rathaus, and got a very unexpected bonus. The biggest ice rink I have ever seen, so many people enjoying it, and a route around the venue on ice, as well as a huge rink next to the cathedral. Boots can be hired cheaply, but it does get very busy. They also have a market where... More

This place was constantly buzzing during our visit. We spent a few hours there on our last night in the city and went up the spinning viewing deck for 7 euros and the ice rink. The ice rink is great value for those who love to skate and though there is so much rink space, it does get very full.

Very good event in the heart of the winter for families or couples who want to enjoy ice skating or to watch people doing ice skating for free. Beautiful wooden stands serve tasteful dishes for every kind of desired taste. Local tastes like wurst (sausage) with cheese or paprika, with sauce or not, grilled salmon with special sauce,pasta and delicious... More

Wiener Eistraum takes place from mid January to sometime in March. During this time two large ice-skating rinks are setup at Rathausplatz. One is directly in front of Rathaus Building and the other near the entrance of the park, opposite Burgtheatre. The two rinks are cleverly linked together by winding ice trails that occupy much of the park. There is... More

If you're in Vienna over winter it is definitely worth checking this out. Shoes are available to hire and there are food stalls by the rink. Was a mix of both beginners and the more advanced but there is plenty of room so can stay out of other peoples way.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
