- The local recreation areas around the Viehofner lakes* offer top sports and leisure activities right in the middle of St. Pölten. From swimming and beach volleyball in the summer to ice skating and ice hockey in the winter – the lakes are among the best chill-out locations in the city.
- Located directly at the Viehofner lake, the Seedose* is a great place to eat and drink which has its own boat rental and picnic services.
- The Ratzersdorfer lake* is not just for swimming. There are several sports fields: two for beach volleyball, and one each for basketball and soccer. Scenic running, walking and cycling routes around the lake and a public barbecue area make the outdoor experience complete.
