Ice Skating at Frederiksberg Runddel
Get your skates on at Frederiksberg Runddel at the entrance to Frederiksberg Gardens. Here you can enjoy a slice of serenity, in middle of the busy city. Why not show the locals your skating skills- you can twirl on the ice for free unless you hire skates which will set you back a reasonable 50 Kroner. You don't have to be an expert on the ice, but you do need to skate anti-clockwise or risk chaos! Open 11.00-20.00 Monday to Friday, and 10.00-20.00 Saturday and Sunday, until the 25th of February.
