Rope climbing in Vienna

  • Climbing hall, Vienna

1,200 square meters in area, an overall height of 16 meters and 2,300 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 700 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.
