Ice Skating in Front of the Hotel de Ville

Thursday, December 22, 2011 @ 07:12 AM  posted by Mark

Every winter, the City of Paris sets up an ice skating rink in front of the Hotel de Ville, and you can rent skates all day for a mere 5 euros. Ice skating within a stone’s throw of the Seine in that beautiful plaza makes the holiday seem magical, even if they insist on playing mediocre disco on the sound system. Follow the link for video:

Ice Skating to “I Will Survive”

Or just look at the pretty pictures:

The Ice is a bit carved up, adding an amusing degree of difficulty.
