Leisure Activities

The Bar of the Diplomatic Academy

DA students come from all over the world and spend a great amount of time with each other.

The DA Bar, run by the students themselves, is the central meeting point for students. It is a place where you can chill-out after classes or read a selection of the many international newspapers and magazines provided by the DA.


Students of the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna have the opportunity to engage in a number of sports activities. In order to balance the high intellectual challanges posed in the classes (“mens sana in corpore sano”), students have the use of a swimming pool, a fitness room, a gym and a running track. The sports facilities are located in the adjacent Theresianum building. Furthermore, students can strengthen their team spirit in competitive skiing, basketball, volleyball and swimming tournaments.
