The 22nd film festival at Rathausplatz is ready to open its gates on June 30th for yet another great season. Until the 2nd of September classical but also modern music shows and concerts can be followed from the large seating area around the huge screen on Rathausplatz. Carmen, Anna Bolena and La Bohème are only 3 of the many masterpieces that can be found on this summer’s programme. Films start when it gets dark and the best is: there is no admission fee.
Beach feeling in the midst of Vienna! Sand in the city is one of the places to be in summer in Vienna. The location, which serves as an ice-skating rink during winter, is turned into a large beach as soon as the first rays of warm sunlight start showing in spring. There are several food stands offering food from all over the world, cocktails are ice-cold and yummy, chairs and sunbeds are inviting and there are even two beach volleyball courts. This year they also built a children’s playground to entertain even the youngest of visitors.
Admission is free of charge. Sand in the city is open daily from 2pm to midnight. You can reach it by tube U4 Stadtpark, exit Johannesgasse.
Address: Lothringerstr.22, 1030 Vienna
