Take over the city with your bike at the Friday Nightskate
When: season opening is May 10, 9pm. Then every week on Friday at 9pm
Where: Starts at Heldenplatz. The route changes every week
Friday Nightskating is returning this month! Ring-a-ding-ding (that’s your bike bell resounding amongst hundreds of others on the night skate). Ever been surprised by a horde of skaters and cyclists passing you by in the middle of the night on Vienna streets? Rest assured, this wasn’t your mind playing tricks on you, but rather it was the crowd doing the Friday Nightskate. This is a recurring summer event in Vienna that is a whole lot of fun! Rollerblade and bicycle enthusiasts meet every Friday at 9pm on Heldenplatz to follow their passion in cruising through the streets of Vienna (that’s right, they even shut down streets for this event!)
Plus: All the routes are different every time, so you might discover some places you’ve never been to before in Vienna.
Recommended if you like: taking to the streets, biking or blading, exploring the city, ringing your bell, the thought of hundreds of bikers dinging their bells in unison, how sexy you look in lycra, those events that give you goosebumps
