    The so-called "Bade-Schiff" is a ship permanentely docked next to Schwedenplatz and it has a swimming-pool in that ship - just take a look at my pictures here.
    It is a heated outdoor-pool and there is also a cafe and restaurant and some changing-rooms on the other ship, that also has a "beach" on its top, where you can take a sunbath !

    Equipment: bring your VT-thong or Bikini, that should be enough !

    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).

    CRAZY GOLF

    by mel_bee Updated May 22, 2003
    me having fun playing golf

    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).

    National football stadium

    by William1982 Written Aug 8, 2004
    Ernst Happel stadium

    Another football related tip, but the Ernst Happel stadium resides in Vienna. It usually hosts the Austrian national teams' home games and probably cup finals??? It's not too far from the fair. England will be playing here in September, on the way to the World Cup in Germany.......???

    Ernst Happel Stadium / 1

    The Austrian National Soccer Team play their home matches at Vienna's "Ernst Happel Stadium" (named after a former player and coach of Austria).

    I was there on Aug 18, 2004 to watch Austria play Germany in a friendly (which GER won 3-1), which was held in to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Austrian Soccer Federation(see http://www.oefb.at). It's a nice stadium with a capacity of about 50,000 spectators.

    For this match, about 37,000 showed up and provided for a nice and in part very enthusiastic atmosphere. I liked it a lot and I do hope to return for one of their qualifying matches for the World Cup 2006.

    The stadium will host matches during the European Soccer Championship 2008, which will be co-hosted by Austria and Switzerland.

    Panoramic view

    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!

    good practice for the Matterhorn

    Miss the mountains? Get some practice in at the Fleckturm in Esterhazy Park, just off Mariahilfersrasse.
