This possible is Vienna only: the cultural capital of Europe and city free of clichés. 

For the winter lovers there are ice-skating at Vienna’s Rathaus. For more than 20 years, the Vienna Ice Dream has been a mandatory part of the calendar of events. The City Hall itself has been transformed into a winter wonderland provided with an ice-skating rink, fairy lights between the trees and outdoor booths where organic delicacies are served. Until March visitors can enjoy ice skating on an ice rink on two storeys of the size of about 9,000 square metres opposite to the magnificent backdrop of Vienna City Hall. Once you’ve had enough gliding, you should definitely warm up with hot drinks at the Almhütte.
