Outdoor ice skating in Paris
If skating is among your favorite winter sports, what do you say about skating at the first floor of the Eiffel Tour or head to one of the main ice rinks installed in the city? If you don’t know how to skate, you can just watch your kids having fun, while you enjoy the spectacle with a cup of hot wine or chocolate. Although the entrance is free, skate rental is approximately 5 euros. Besides the ice skating rink available at the Eiffel Tour, visitors can also experience Trocadero Ice rink located across the Seine that starts generally from mid-December to early January. It is a great spot with great views of the Eiffel Tower plus the wonderful Christmas atmosphere. Another option is Ice Skating de L’Hotel de Ville which has a huge open-air rink located in front of the city hall and it is opened in the first weekend of December until early March.
