Another Rink

Yesterday’s post reminded me that I took some pictures of the skating rink at the Christmas Market in front of the Rathaus in Vienna. That rink impressed me with a far more creative approach than most of the other outdoor rinks I have seen in Europe.

Instead of a rectangular slab of ice which could double as a hockey rink, this one winds its way through a section of park. It is narrow and there are options as to where you skate – not just in a circle like in the other rinks. The trees overhead and the park-like setting give it a nice ambiance. If you stand back you can see that it is really jammed into a small space, but it doesn’t seem like it.

I was almost tempted to rent skates and take a spin, it looked like people were having a lot of fun.
