Trabrennbahn Krieau (Krieau Race Track) is a horse racing track in Leopoldstadt district, Vienna.[1] It was opened in 1878. The old grandstand and a tower for officials were finished in 1913. Krieau Race Track is the second oldest harness racing track in Europe after the 1834 built Central Moscow Hippodrome.[2]

Major annual racing events are the 1886 established Österreichisches Traber-Derby and the Graf Kalman Hunyady Memorial, held since 1901. Krieau Race Track is also used as a concert venue, recently hosting artists like Avicii, Robbie Williams, Green Day and Bon Jovi.[3]
