    CLIMBING

    by mel_bee Updated Jul 23, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I am always fascinated when I watch the climbers at the climbing wall on the Flakturm in the 6th district Esterhazypark. There are several climbing areas in Vienna, this particular one is open April to October during good weather from 14:00 onwards. To have a go contact the Alpenverein, Vienna section
    585 47 48 or look at www.oeav-events.at/

    CRAZY GOLF

    by mel_bee Updated May 22, 2003

    I hate to admit it, but my favourite fun sport is crazy golf. To play in Vienna head to the Prater (U1/tram 5/S1/S2/S3 Praterstern). There are two golf courses, my favourite is the one behind the Riesenrad (big wheel).

    Ice skating

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In winter a large ice rink is available at the Rathaus. They play music and there are several stalls selling food and drink. I can't skate to save my life so watched while drinking a hot mug of Glühwein!

    Equipment: It seems that most people bring their own skates but I'm sure they are available to rent too.

    The public bath “Margaretenbad“

    by siwi Updated Jan 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located in Vienna’s fifth district, the Margaretenbad has always been a popular meeting place for old and young.
    With its varied offers for fun and relaxation, such as a big dragon slide, a water fall, a counter stream swim unit, sauna, solarium and a restaurant, it has become one of the city’s jewels.

    Biking, Roller Skating and Co. In Vienna

    by iavormar Written Oct 21, 2002

    Biking is a part of the every day life of many people who live in Vienna. There are special lanes on the streets for the bikers and a lot of people prefer to use them instead of the public transportation.

    It's the same for roller blading. During the summer, spring and autumn months every friday you can join many young people on their ride through downtown Vienna. Actually they are they are skateing arround the first district and the police stops the cars...

    If you don't want to wait till Friday you can go to the Donauinsel (Danube Island) where you can enjoy the sites of the Donau City and the green sites of the island.

    Equipment: During the summer months you can also play some beach volleyball on the Danube Island (it's close to the U6 Station called Handelskai).

    If you're into extreme sports, the Danube Tower's the right place for you. Since 2000 it's been the highest bungy centre of the world!
