We went ice skating, there was a 400m track and a hockey track. The quality of the ice was excellent. The skate rental was a flat out misery. Long waiting times, both for rental and for return. The quality of the rental skates was very poor and there were a lot of people complaining about those two aspects. So go there, but bring your own skates ;)
