Hotel President Budapest basically opened the coolest ice-skating rink in the whole city. The Intermezzo IceTerrace has been officially opened on the hotel’s rooftop, orientpress.hu reports. Luckily, the hotel’s guests are not the only ones who can enjoy this special ice-skating rink and its amazing view of downtown Budapest.
Hotel President Budapest is a four-star hotel located on Hold street, in District V. The hotel decided to open its very own 110 square metre ice-skating rink on its own rooftop. The ice-skating rink offers a 360 panorama of the hotel’s surroundings. From the Intermezzo IceTerrace, visitors can see almost all of the popular sights of Budapest such as St. Stephen’s Basilica, the Hungarian Parliament, the Buda Castle and even the Citadel.
This ice rink is special because it not only offers the opportunity to get a little exercise and ice-skate, but a small wooden cottage next to the rink sells all of our favourite festive treats. On the spot, visitors who would like to have a little rest after skating can enjoy a cup of hot mulled wine or punch. Roasted chestnuts and bejgli are also available to purchase.
Besides the festive food and drinks, the beautiful lights and our favourite Christmas tunes make the Intermezzo IceTerrace the ideal place to enjoy the perfect Christmas atmosphere.
Gergő Galla, manager of Hotel President Budapest said:
“We are very glad that we have managed to build a unique ice-skating rink above the city of Budapest which can be enjoyed by the lovers of this particular winter sport and by people who generally enjoy special things.”
Luckily, guests of the hotel are not the only ones who get the opportunity to visit this special ice rink above Budapest. Anyone can purchase a ticked at the hotel’s reception. The rink is even available to rent for special occasions, such as parties.
People can visit the most unique ice rink of Budapest from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays, and from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the weekends. Do not worry, you have plenty of time to visit this special rink. The Intermezzo IceTerrace is open until the end of February.
