8 Best Ice Skating Rinks in Budapest
Budapest is the proud owner of one of the world’s most beautiful ice-skating rinks, so if you have nothing against getting some exercise, you should put your skates on (which can be rented, naturally) and visit it – read on to know where it is!

At the City Park Ice-Skating Rink, gliding through the ice next to Vajdahunyad Castle is a rather special feeling, especially after sundown, when brightly lit buildings provide a lovely backdrop for the relaxing experience. And if your fingers get numb in the sub-zero temperatures, sipping a glass of delicious mulled wine next to the rink warms you up fairly quickly.

Those who prefer to only watch the skaters in action can drop by at Városliget Cafe & Restaurant overlooking the ice rink for a locally roasted espresso and some delicious cakes. 

Ice skating is not only available there of course, you can also put on a pair of skates at Marczibányi square on the Buda side, in the Csepel neighborhood, in the 8th district of Józsefváros or in Soroksár.

In fact there are around thirty different ice-skating opportunities in Budapest, top tips are the outdoor rink by MÜPA (Palace of Arts) with a wonderful view of the Danube or skate at one of the largest rinks at Budapest Park or opt for a cozier skating experience among the old houses by the main square of Óbuda.
