Ice Skating in Paris 2020 - Best Time

This classic winter entertainment is much more atmospheric at Paris's seasonal open-air ice rinks. Paris always has lovely program for skaters. So you can bring your family, friends or love ones to feel a true delight. Paris offers a few excellent options in front of Hotel de Ville, at Trocadero, Jardin des Tuileries, and Champs-Elysees, but the most exclusive ice rink is set 60 metres above ground, at the Eiffel Tower. On most of the skating rinks you can enjoy a cup of hot cocoa, a glass of mulled wine, and champagne. Even oysters can be found there.

If you are more into the indoor skating, you will be glad to know about the chance to visit Le Grand Palais des Glaces, the world's biggest ice skating rink that is held under the glass roof of Grand Palais. Spectacular and incredible playground of 3000 m2 will delight everyone from young to old and will provide unforgettable experience and memories. On the program there are pirouettes, worn, jumps, spirals, double-flips and axels with more fun yet to come. So why not skating according to the desires!?

The rinks open in December and some close already in the first week of January. However, others including the glamorous Eiffel Tower skating rink operate until mid-February, and those around Hotel de Ville are available well into the beginning of March.
