#Ice skating next to Camp Nou
Next to the amazing stadium of FC Barcelona, Camp Nou, lays a big ice rink. The ice rink is made as big as the Olympic ice rink, so the amateur ice hockey team and figure skaters can practice here as well. Besides the training sessions for the ice hockey team and figure skaters, they also host competitions in the Barça ice rink. But the ice rink is open for public every day to enjoy some fun on the ice. You can bring your own skates, but if you do not have any, you can rent them at the ice rink as well for only €14 including the entrance ticket.
