Flakturm Climbing Wall

Flakturm Climbing Wall is a rather special experience for any climbing enthusiast, regardless of their skillset. Not only is it Vienna´s most-panoramic climbing location, but it´s also the one with the most history, as the Flakturm Climbing Wall is located directly on the 30-meter high anti-aircraft flak tower, which currently houses the Aqua Terra Zoo – House of the Sea. Over 20 routes, of varying levels of difficulty, rated grades 4-9, await you in the heart of Vienna´s 6th district of Mariahilf. Kids are allowed from age 6. School groups are welcome; though pre-booking is still required. For individuals, there´s no need to pre-book. Closing time varies, as it´s set by sunset. Induction is provided by trained staff and climbing equipment can be rented on-site. The Flakturm Climbing Wall is run by Alpenverein Austria, Austria´s largest alpine organisation who organises plenty of courses for kids, youth, and adults. Courses start regularly during the April through October season; and a trial lesson is usually available. For families, we recommend combining the climbing session at the Flakturm Climbing Wall with a visit to the favourite Esterházy Park playground, especially if you are coming with younger siblings.
