Vienna Vixen Iggy in front of Vienna City Hall and the Vienna Ice Dream
Cold winter days are great for staying indoors and drinking hot chocolate, but they're also perfect for ice skating.
Vienna Vixen Iggy went to the Rathausplatz (City Hall plaza) to check out the Vienna Ice Dream 2009 because it promises pure amusement on ice. Where once was the Christkindlmarkt (Christmas market), now is an ice-covered path of over 400 meter in length, just for ice skating. Cool!
For beginners in need of a little practice before stepping on the ice, there is a small practicing area. Children & beginners of all ages may use this area in the afternoon.
Hungry skaters need not worry as there are cabins selling food and drinks, as well as as a sidewalk cafe nearby.
Skaters can move and groove along (a great way to fight the cold!) to music played by Radio Wien DJs.
While the Vienna Ice Dream assures us that they never run out of rentable skates and have a wide range of sizes (sizes 26 to 50), they don't have Miss Iggy's size!
The Vienna Ice Dream remains a reality until March 8, 2009 and is opened from 9 AM to 11 PM.
