Vienna City Hall in the winter wouldn't be complete without a skating rink in front of it. More than 500,000 skaters take advantage of this seasonal attraction. It is especially popular during Christmas, school holidays, and Fasching.

Another interesting option is the Engelmann Ice Rink at the top of a building in the Hernals area. It provides a nice panorama of the streets of Vienna.
