Das Leben is schön: eisglatt ('Life is beautiful - icy like black ice')
Das Leben ist schön: Eisglatt (ORF 2020)
There are places that seem to resist the climate change. There is ice, even if temperatures offer summer feelings in winter.
Life is beautiful, at the Wiener Eislaufverein - Austria's largest ice rink.
It's the place where the fast moving presence teams up with the stylish past and a feeling of retro and historical glamour with the Wiener Konzerthaus as back drop.
Since 1867, the founding year of the Wiener Eislaufverein thousands of Viennese all ages indulge themselves on the mirrorlike surface.
It's the icy surface that helps you forget daily grind: flirting, dancing, gliding, jumping, chasing the ice hockey puck,… It's not only sports, but a way of living.
