Ice skating in paris

Every year you can ice skate in the middle of the French capital. A large enclosure is installed in front of the town hall ("le patinoire de l'Hôtel de Ville") that is filled with water and ice is created. There is an oval enclosure for experienced adults (about 1000 square meters) and a smaller space for children and beginners (about 300 square meters). This event lasts about three months (from December to early March) and is very successful among Parisians and tourists (about 140,000 users each year). You can rent skates or bring your own. Most often it is the latter, done on a whim, and it is very comfortable to wear skates around town. Usually there are lines to get into the track, especially on the weekends in the afternoon. To avoid this, the best time is a Saturday or Sunday morning, in addition to having fewer people, you can see higher level people doing real stunts. Rental skates cost 5 € although the entrance to the exhibition is free. Besides the free access, at certain times there are displays and ice hockey matches. Participation in these events is not open to the public though if you demonstrate skill, you can participate. The rink is open every day, long hours, with early morning hours reserved for school and sports clubs.
