The Vienna Ice Dream is a mobile ice rink, which is built every year at the Rathausplatz (in front of the Town Hall). Since 1996 the entire ice has grown to 7,000 square metres. In addition, there is a 480 square metres synthetic ice rink for first ice skating experiments.
For opening hours and admission have a look here.

70 years liberation of Auschwitz
Yesterday Viennese people remembered the victims of the Holocaust and of Nazi crimes on Heldenplatz. The labor and extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated by the Red Army on 27 January 1945. People gathered to commemorate the 70th anniversary and to raise awareness.
“It happened, therefore it can happen again: this is the core of what we have to say.”
