  • BEST ICE SKATING EXPERIENCE EVER! Huge course, with four different, yet connected, ice rinks. Roundabouts, small slopes and beautiful scenery. Try and go at night. Quite expensive if you don't own your own ice skates (20 euro per person), but definitely worth it.
  • I had an amazing time ice skating with my friends during my trip to Vienna, in front of such amazing architecture. The skating rink was also big, had lots of space to move around and lots of different routes that would make you just want to skate the whole afternoon.
  • This is an ice skater's paradise. Also staff throughout the information centers, skate rental, shops, bars and restaurants capture the definition of live to love and love to live, patience, hospitality and all out fun. I honestly did not think highly of the inhabitants and visitors of St. Stephens City Center (where I was staying) and extrapolated this sentiment onto the whole of Vienna. One night of ice skating and hot wine (along with a few beers and shots afterwards with random friends) completely made me fall in love with Wein. Bravo!
  • Very cool place to visit if you like Gothic style buildings. The Christmas markets in the gardens had a good selection of foods. Public toilets are available by the main road for 50cents. A really large ice skating course was also set up around one part of the garden.
  • Great place to be during winter. Decorations are beautiful, building looks very grand and there's a ice skating arena as well.
