Try something new

Stand up paddling or wakeboarding in the middle of Vienna? Yes, you can do both! The Danube makes it possible, beach vibes included. 


  1. 1

    Stand Up Paddling Center Vienna

    In Vienna, there are many opportunities to combine nature and sports. If you like something different try stand up paddling in the Viennese Gänsehäufel bathing area. Perfect when it's too hot to run in Vienna or for the fitness centre. To be able to participate, simply book your tickets in advance on the website. You can paddle daily from 10 am for € 13 per hour.

    Vienna Slackliners

    Balance and body tension can be trained best with the Vienna Slackliners. They meet every Friday from 03:00 pm on the Arenawiese in Vienna's Prater. For beginners it is enough to stretch the slackline between two trees, professionals then dare to span the slackline between two roofs. Anyone who wants to participate can take part - no matter if you just want to try it out or if you are already a full professional.

    Wakeboardlift Vienna

    The wake_up beside the wakeboard lift at the Neue Donau is one of the most relaxed locations on Vienna’s waters. While some people race across the Danube with their boards, others sunbathe on the jetty right next to the large sun terrace. The ultimate chill-out zone!
