Vienna Ice World
The dreamily lit facade of City Hall forms the backdrop for the Vienna Ice World. An area of 7,000 m2 provides a fairytale ice landscape for skating fans. 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. Winding through the romantically illuminated City Hall Park is an idyllic ice path that thrills beginners and professionals alike with its countless routes. Six ice curling lanes also await visitors from 5.00 pm.
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. 1,800 pair of skating boots pre-heated with warm air can be rented on site. Free ice skating is available to everyone from 7.00 pm on the opening evening (22 January).
Observation Tower with a View of the Ringstrasse
There will be a special highlight at this year’s 150-year anniversary of the Ringstrasse: Visitors can have a look of the Vienna Ice World and the Vienna Ringstrasse from an observation tower. A steel tower with a total height of 81 meters – the so-called City Skyliner – makes it possible. At a height of 70 meters there is a glass observation capsule that rotates through 360 degrees. While it turns riders are informed about the buildings and the history of Vienna's Ringstrasse. The City Skyliner is fully air-conditioned and can accommodate 60 people. Open daily from 9:00 to 22:00. Admission prices: Adults 7 €, children 4 €.
