In the beginnings of the WEV and ice-skating in Vienna specialized books about techniques and moves were published, describing in greatest detail how a move had to be performed.

More recently, in 2017 a new book - 150 Years Wiener Eislaufverein - was published. It was written by Agnes Meisinger who provides lots of unknown facts about the Wiener Eislaufverein.




The books are written in German though.


Kunstfertigkeit im Eislaufen von Robert Holletschek

Book recommendation: Mord auf dem Eis by Beate Maly

Mord auf dem Eis

'Mord auf dem Eis' is a fascinating historical crime novel set in the winter of 1924 in snow covered Vienna.
Beate Maly places you right in the middle of the tradtional Wiener Eislaufverein where the main characters Ernestine and Anton spend a lot of time round-dancing. Though, when a young figured  skater is murdered, the winter fairytale is destroyed.. .
