Best Winter Sports in Vienna Surrounding Area
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Vienna team
Winters in Vienna are cold and crispy. There are plenty of Ice skating rinks in town - the most beautiful one just in front of the Wiener Rathaus (city hall). It is also very possible to arrange a day of skiing from Vienna - the slopes are very near!
The nearest skiing station is called Semmering, approximately 1 hours drive south of the city. Skies can be rented right there and all facilities to spend a nice day on the slopes are provided for by the excellent and well known winter sport infrastructure Austria is so well known for.
