Hi Eliska, thanks for your question. We do advise pre-booking peak sessions - especially during December - to avoid disappointment.

Yes you can observe and not skate. There is a nice bar there and also an outside area where you can take photos and skate. They also sell waffles outside, which smell delicious. The venue is really nice.
