Salzburg Photos: Skating at the Ice Rink
return to "winter photos"
Every year in winter, the Mozartplatz Square in Salzburg's
transformed into a winter wonderland with market stands selling punch and mulled
wine and a massive ice rink. It must be one of the most charming ice rinks in
all of Europe - allowing to skate in the middle of Baroque churches and palaces
at the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the weeks before Christmas, the
attractions of the Mozartplatz are rivalled by the nearby Christmas Market, but
they last longer: Whilst the "Christkindlmarkt" closes on the 24th, the market
stands next to the Ice Rink on the Mozartplatz stay there for much of the winter.
