They expanded it this year, so it's slightly bigger now. It's very fun if you like ice skating. Try to come when it's a bit quieter, more enjoyable with less people. Also means better ice. Not the ideal place for complete beginners since it's rather crowded due to its popularity. They have two bigger rinks where you can circle around... More

We went for a quick 1-2 hours skating on our way to our ski holiday. Great location in front of the old city hall where they have set up wooden stalls with hot chocolate and traditional Austrian sweets and dishes. The rink is fairly large with 2 large rinks and a lot of paths meandering through the park. Friday afternoon... More

Wienee Eistraum is the adress to go iceskating in Vienna. And honestly, it really is beautiful and romantic there skating through the townhall's park right next to townhall and Burgtheater. The paths are long and the fields big, which is really awesome to skate...if you have your own shoes. The ones you can rent there are totally useless. Not carved,... More

The 2016 season showcased a 8000sq metre ice skating area situated in Rathaus park, it sits right in front of the Rathaus building and the national theatre. The views and experiences are breathtaking. When you need a break from skating, there are food stalls and a restaurant available in the area to recharge. I opted to warm up with a... More

This has been one of the real highlights of a month in Switzerland and Austria. The Eistraum is open this year 21.1.16 - 6.3.16 from 9am to 10pm and it is a must do for anyone visiting Vienna. 3 large skating rinks connected by a maze of ice trails through the park...plus a large food vending area with all the...

This must be great fun! Perfectly organized, with amazing views and superb vibe all around. A place to spend 1-2 hours. The huge ice rink together with additional pathways is a challenge for everyone who dares to have fund :-)

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

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.
