The ice rink is gorgeous! Do not miss it! It is partially covered, so it’s weather proof as well 🙂 Furthermore the chalets are awesome and they have hot drinks and food. Especially the burgers on fire pit were pretty good – nothing beats a hot chocolate after ice skating. This is definitely a highlight when visiting the Christmas market in Luxembourg with kids

Cost for ice skating is EUR 8 per adult (or EUR 6, if you have your own ice skates) and EUR 7 for kids under 120cm. You can also rent a bobby for EUR 3 (EUR 5 refundable deposit)
