Climbing hall, Vienna

Climbing: Indoor & Outdoor

Boulderbar Vienna

A very young climbing hall, which only opened in 2012, is the Boulderbar. In contrast to many "climbing caves" located in basements, this location scores with its light, airy ambience. The post used to be sorted in the supermarket-sized hall with skylights - today, boulderers puzzle out their routes.

Climbing hall, Vienna

1,200 square meters in area, an overall height of 16 meters and 1,900 square meters of varied climbing landscape for all levels of difficulty - that's the "Kletterhalle Wien". The largest climbing hall in Austria offers something for everyone, whether beginners, sports climbers or experienced Alpine tourists with training ambitions.

On 400 square meters of boulder area (to boulder means climbing in jumping height) one can practice, warm up, and try out some tricks without any danger. They can then be applied during Top Rope Climbing (= climbing with secured ropes from above). Equipment such as shoes, straps, and helmets can be rented; courses and workshops, generous sanitary facilities, a seminar room, and a café bar are also available.

Flakturm Esterházypark & Pier 9

A view over the roofs of the city is offered by the 25 sports climbing routes on the Flakturm in Esterházypark. On an area of over 700 square meters, more than 4,000 handholds offer variety and challenges of a vertical nature. The up to 34 meter-high main wall offers routes for beginners and experts, between difficulty levels 4 and 9.

Pier 9 offers outdoor climbing on a 21.5 meter-high wall by the Danube Canal.

Climbing Parks

Get high up into the fresh air in three Climbing Parks in Vienna: the High Wire Climbing Garden at Gänsehäufel, the Climbing Park Danube Island and the Kahlenberg Forest Rope Park inmidst the Vienna Woods.

Enjoy the promo video of Vienna's first Urban Boulder Movie. It is the teaser of the short film "Vienna Walls". The crew of the platform urban-boulder.com presents Vienna's best locations: urban boulder classics like the wall of the club "Flex" as well as new spots like the roof of the Main Library and the bridge crossing over the Prater Main alley. Climb the City!
