A large portion of ice skating pleasure

The Viennese Ice Dream is not an ice skating rink, but rather a huge icescape. On some 9,000 m2 of icy surface, beginners and experts alike will find diverse possibilities to practice the beloved winter sport.

Four large ice skating rinks, ranging from 350 m² to 1,900 m², offer plenty of space for lively motions and generous tours on the ice. The Traumpfade (Dream Paths) are there for those who prefer to gently glide around. These paths, 550 m in total length, lead through the middle of the romantically lit Rathauspark and connect the large ice rinks to each other.

Those who want to go higher can head to the SKY RINK. The 880 m2 ice terrace on the first floor, newly constructed in 2019, is easily reached via a 120-metre-long access ramp and offers an impressive view of Vienna’s Rathausplatz and the magical world of the Viennese Ice Dream. The cool pleasure is underscored by the powerful sounds of Radio Wien’s DJs and fascinating lighting effects.

Two free practice areas of 125 m² and 550 m² are available for children and beginners. Aids shaped like penguins hold out a supporting flipper for those first steps on the ice.

The Viennese Ice Dream also provides a beloved alternative to the sporty trial of skill for all those who do not want to step directly onto the slippery ice: eight ice stock shooting lanes are available for entertaining team games and round off the varied leisure offerings during the winter months on Vienna’s Rathausplatz.
