Ice Skating Venues in Copenhagen

This time of year many outdoor ice skating rinks pop up all over town.  We have compiled a list of the outdoor and indoor ones that will keep little ones busy on their skates all winter.  Some of these places are open every day from between now and the end of February (even on holidays).  This is an easy last minute activity for busy parents with kids who love to skate or looking for a family friendly evening outing. For more information, visit www.miniCPH.com/skating.
