Luxembourg City is beginning to transform into a winter wonderland and the annual ice rink opens this Wednesday on Place Guillaume II in addition to the Christmas markets on Place d'Armes and Place de la Constitution.

The "Knuedler on Ice" rink opens for the first time this year on November 22 and will remain open until January 7, 2018, and it's bigger by 300 square metres than last year.

Taking up 800 sq m, the rink is half-covered under a marquis, so even bad weather cannot stop the fun. Some 20,000 LED lights will twinkle inside adding to the festive atmosphere.

Even if you don't fancy heading out on to the ice, the rink offers a heated tent and chalets with food and mulled wine to keep warm. There's even an open fire to huddle around.

On New Year's Eve the ice rink will be open late from 11am until 2am with a programme of events planned for the night.

Entrance to the rink is €5, and skates can be rented for €2. For children under 1m 20 skate rental costs just €1.  A locker to leave valuables is available for 50 cents. Skaters need to wear gloves on the ice and wear appropriate clothing.
