Visit Vienna’s only ice rink in a Christmassy ambience!

The Little Ice Dream measures 3.000 m2 and offers suspense and variety to all visitors of the Vienna Christmas Dream.

Numerous winding paths of ice lead through the romantic park in front of the city hall, creating a singular atmosphere. The air is filled with Christmas music and instills anticipation for the big holiday.
If you did not bring skates or a helmet, you can easily borrow equipment on-site. There are also lockers available for your wardrobe so there is nothing in your way for a spontaneous visit.

If you book your tickets online, you not only skip the waiting line, but also get a discount of 10% on the regular entrance fee.


Providing opportunities to children for exercise is important, which is why Viennese nurseries, schools and after school programs can use the ice rink for free from Monday to Friday between 10 am and 4 pm. The borrowing fee for skates is also reduced for them.

More ice skating wanted? No problem!

After the Little Ice Dream comes Vienna’s Ice Dream!

On 18 January 2019 Vienna’s largest and most beautiful ice rink opens with many additional offers like the popular curling.
And the best part is that season tickets are valid for the Little Ice Dream and Vienna’s Ice Dream.
