The Ice skating in Paris
During Christmas period, there are not only the windows and presents…
You can also check the ice-rinks, specially installed for the occasion, and discover Paris in another way.
We recommend 2 of them:
The Hotel de Ville’s Ice-rink: very reasonable (they rent you the blades for 5€), for the big kids (1.635 m²) as for the smaller ones (258 m²)… Open from noon to 10pm everyday, and from 9am to 10pm on saturday, sunday, and bank holidays… More info on www.paris.fr. From Dec. 16th to March 4th. 1, place de l’Hotel de Ville – Metro stop Hotel de Ville.
The Eiffel Tower Ice-rink: unusual, isn’t it? to skate 57m above the ground with the Eiffel Tower just over your head! From 10.30am to 10.30pm, and until Jan. 31st. Champs de Mars – Metro stop Bir Hakeim. To visit the website: www.tour-eiffel.fr
