Ice-skating in front of City Hall

Winter sports

Ice skating

Fancy a Viennese winter fairytale? From mid-November to the beginning of March, let yourself be guided onto the ice at the Vienna Ice World (17 November to 3 March 2018) in front of the magnificent setting of City Hall and on the romantic path through City Hall Park.

Artistic turns under the open sky can also be made at the Vienna Ice Skating Club (17 November 2017 to 4 March 2018) near the Stadtpark - the Vienna Ice Skating Club is also celebrating its 150th birthday this year. The Engelmann artificial ice rink (26 October 2017 to 11 March 2018) 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 building since the 1970s - rounds on the ice are made directly under the open sky. Fun making big loops is also offered by the Albert Schultz Eishalle (7 October 2017 to 31 March 2018), the Wiener Stadthalle (winter season: 22 October 2017 to 11 March 2018; public skating is also possible in the summer months in the "EisStadthalle" - more information about this here) and Eisring Süd (22 October 2017 to 11 March 2018).

Curling lanes in Vienna

You can go curling in Vienna at the Vienna Christmas World on Rathausplatz (City Hall Square) from November. At the Vienna Ice World (also on City Hall Square), there are another eight lanes from 19 January 2018 on which sporty curling players can put their skills to the test. The curling stones can also be swung on two lanes in the Christmas Village in the Altes AKH (daily from 18 November to 23 December 2017). Around the Badeschiff (Pool Boat), the "ParadEIS" (from 11 November) on the Danube Canal promises warm winter evenings with four curling lanes (two on land, two on the pool boat itself - click here for online bookings), a skating rink, the punch deck (daily at 4.00 pm from 21 November), mulled wine and other tasty treats.

Tobogganing

With sufficient snowfall, several meadows in Vienna’s parks transform into toboggan runs. You can toboggan with assured snow in the Prater, where a toboggan run with artificial snow is created on the hill of the Jesuitenwiese meadow when the temperature falls below -2° C, or on the Kaffeehausberg in Danube Park, which also has snow-making equipment.

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.
