Here’s where you can get away from the snow slush in the streets & have some fun or slow things down while walking through peacefully covered white parks. Take a deep breath, and enjoy the fresh winter air!

Türkenschanzpark is what many call the most beautiful park in the city. It has it all: small pathways, ponds, and rolling hills perfect for tobogganing (above picture)!

The two most significant recreational facilities in Vienna are Donauinsel and Prater. Danube Island is perfect for endless walks – with your dog – and the like. To the Viennese, the more centrally located Prater is what Central Park is to the New Yorkers. Go find Jesuitenwiese, where tobogganing is even possible at night! You can rent toboggans for free. Find the list with details of where to slide down snowy hills in Vienna here.

You can even ski in Vienna! Dollwiese is a small yet easy-to-reach hill for beginners (only!) who can ski and snowboard – as long as there’s actual snow.

Sidenote: when wandering Vienna’s cemeteries in winter you might find devastated graves. You must not think badly of the Viennese though! Those gravesites have probably been ravaged by Russians – every year about 200,000 Russian crows winter down in Vienna. And, believe it or not, those birds eat candles – and flowers.

In the case of no snow in the city, maybe go ice skating or pay the Snowglobe Factory a visit – first invented right here, in Vienna 😉
