Vienna is becoming a SPORT.PLATZ

The whole city will exercise for two weeks long!

If you are in Vienna in August and wish to be active, but don’t yet know exactly how, where, and when, then you have the possibility to exercise in all sorts of ways in the whole city from August 18 to 31, 2014.

For 14 days long, at various public squares in Vienna, people will dance, do gymnastics, stretch and box in the open air. Daily starting at 6:00 PM, everyone interested in exercise can experience and try out classic and new types of sports with professional trainers for free, every day in a different district in Vienna.


The big kick off takes place in front of the Museumsquartier (corner of Mariahilferstrasse) on August 18, 2014. There, the star choreograph Alamande Belfor with the BigSmile Team will give the first energy boost.

Among the additional highlights of this event are also:

– 19.08. Nia Technique®
   -> a holistic movement concept for fitness and body consciousness
 – 20.08. Deep Work™
    -> workout from five elements and full of energy
 – 23.08. Afro Dance
   -> energy and joie de vivre through African dance


The other days are also filled with exciting sports sessions such as body toning, Bollywood dance, boxing, Latin dance, Piloxing, relaxation & tai chi, Yogalates and Zumba®.

The finale will then take place in Resselpark at Karlplatz on 8/31/2014 (near the fountain), where to finish things off a power work out as well as relaxation will be provided. In addition, great prizes will be raffled off and the most athletic Viennese man and woman will be chosen!

For detailed information on the program and the exact locations, visit www.sportplatzwien.at.


In case you happen to be thirsty or hungry for sport sessions, come by one of the nearby Schick Restaurants and be regaled with culinary delicacies from the Schick team. After an hour of exercise you will have definitely earned it!

I wish you already lots of fun and a lovely, relaxing as well as active summer – and who knows? Maybe we’ll see each other at one or another session!
