Vienna offers you a bunch of activities during the winter time. The old city turns into a snow-capped painting during the cold season. Strolling along the alleys and capturing the atmosphere is an unique experience. For those who are seeking for more activity, can go ice skating or grab the baton at the theme park „Haus der Musik“ and keep the time of Vienna’s member of a philharmonic orchestra.
Vienna has many public places for ice skating to offer in the winter. There you and your family can ice skate on iced water. If you want you can also skate down the „Alte Donau“. That’s why you should pack your skates and look forward to an exciting ice skating season.

During the wintertime you can do toboggan or skiing. Only for this reason a snow gun is used to cover a whole area with snow. By this you can experience real ski run atmosphere in the spotlight at night and toboggan with your sledge during the day. For this you don’t have to drive to the mountains, but still can pursue your passion. During the summer, the winter ski run is a beautiful summer toboggan run. It’s worth visiting the High Hills also when the sun is shining. You can find more information about this in our article “summer in Vienna”.
