rink

12 February 08

At the Wiener Eistraum, half of the pedestrian lane (just in front of the Rathaus) has been transformed too as part of the rink, circling partly the park in front of the City Hall.

The other main rink is not connected to this, only to the bigger rink for more experienced skaters. This adorable penguin (below) is available for the kids to push and help them balance...my son used it for about 15 minutes and he was able to skate by himself later on. Wonder though if they have bigger versions of it for me?!? Lol.

Do you love to skate too? Which do you prefer, hockey blades or figure skating blades? ;-)

  1. What fun! especially, as long as you are going to be out in the cold. I prefer roller skates, my ankles stand a better chance :) Thanks for visiting.

  7. Thanks Fenix...I like it padded even for my daily shoes, the toe pick I guess makes it easier with a figure skating blade?

    I grew up in Philippines too. I have a thing for Vienna, because of Sound of Music.
