Les Patineurs Valse or The Skaters' Waltz or Der Schlittschuhläufer-Walzer (German), Op. 183, is a waltz by Émile Waldteufel.

t was composed in 1882, inspired by the Cercle des Patineurs or Rink of Skaters at the Bois de Boulogne in Paris. The introduction to the waltz can be likened to the poise of a skater, and the rapid runs invoke scenes of a wintry atmosphere.
It is arranged here for symphonic winds.. the piccolo part is optional, but if used, adds to the brilliance of the piece.

It has been performed many times by the orchestra of André Rieu.
