Feel like a Viennese winter fairy-tale? Let yourself be whisked away at the Vienna Ice Dream (22.1.-8.3.2015) in front of the magnificent backdrop of Vienna's City Hall on a romantic path through City Hall Park. Open from the end of January until the beginning of March.

You can also carve ornate curves under the skies at the Wiener Eislaufverein (October 20, 2014 to March 8, 2015) near the Stadtpark or right on the roofs of Vienna: The Engelmann artificial ice rink (October 24, 2014 to March 8, 2015) was established over 100 years ago as the first open-air artificial ice-rink in the world and has been located on the roof of a house since the 1970s. Fun making big loops can also be had at the Albert Schultz Ice Rink (October 1, 2014 to March 29, 2015), Vienna Stadthalle (October 25, 2014 to March 8, 2015) and the Eisring Süd (October 26, 2014 to March 8, 2015). 

Made-to-order skiing fun

Skiers can wedel down the artificial snow slopes at the Hohe Wand. And as soon as there is a 20 cm blanket of snow, cross-country skiers can enjoy eight attractively prepared runs in the Prater, on Wienerberg, Cobenzl hill, the Steinhofgründe, in Schwarzenberg Park, around the Pappelteich pond in Maurerwald and on the Danube Island. The runs are suitable for beginners as well.


When the snow is right, dozens of fields in the Vienna parks turn into toboggan runs. There is always snow to sled on at the Vienna Türkenschanzpark and in the green Prater where there is an artificial snow toboggan hill at Jesuitenwiese as soon as the temperature falls below -2°C.

Indoor sports and fitness centers

When it's ice cold outside things get hot in Vienna's sports and fun halls with a broad range of indoor sports such as climbing, tennis and badminton. Sweat and success factor are in balance in the countless Vienna fitness studios.
