Vienna Ice Dream, Vienna

You’ll feel like you’re floating through a fairytale with a spin around the Vienna Ice Dream rink. With the dreamily lit Rathaus (City Hall) as your backdrop, glide over 23,000 square feet of ice illuminated by twinkling holiday lights. Want to try another alpine sport? Curling lanes are open on weeknights. Or watch all the action by the outdoor stalls, selling strudel, beer and hot punch.
