Walking Tours: ‘Ice Skate Rink’ Rathausplatz, City Hall, Vienna (Video)

It surprised me, but despite the coronavirus lockdown, the ice rink “Wiener Eistraum” on Vienna’s City Hall Rathausplatz was opened. Of course, with the corresponding adjustments, so that as a visitor you can hardly get to the rink. And this time there is no place to buy food or drinks. For the first time, a Community Distance Marker is being used at the ice rink, which supports people in maintaining the prescribed minimum distances and at the same time enables targeted contact tracing. Nevertheless, I made a short video so that you can see how things are going in Vienna during COVID.
