After we have already introduced the Wine Hiking Day in our last article, we will continue properly with great late summer activities! “Angschlagen is!” – with these words the annual Vienna Wiesnfest is opened on the Kaiserwiese at the Prater. From September, the 21st to October, the 8th it is time for Austrian beer, good middle-class delicacies, traditional brass music and garb, of course! Here, you will learn everything about the Vienna Wiesnfest:
Brass music and live concerts
The smell of succulent grilled chicken, thereto the sound of traditional music and Austrian dialect and the sight of sturdy lederhosen and fashionable dirndls – this scenario makes native hearts leap for joy. But also guests in Vienna will not be able to resist the taste of the delicious beer and the crispy pretzels. The cozy Viennese sociability leaves nobody cold and within no time, everybody will sway to the excellent music together. However, as traditional and down-to-earth the Wiesnfest might be, at the evening, things are really heating up! In three party tents you can dance until midnight and if you still do not have enough after that, you can continue partying in one of five Alpine chalets of wood waste with après-ski atmosphere. Besides, this year popular singers from the Schlager music scene will be represented for the first time to fuel the spirit. You can buy tickets for the live concerts beforehand, but you have to secure them early, so that the fun is guaranteed.
Pleasure for the whole family
Of course, the Wiesnfest has also a lot to offer for the whole family! At the “children-wiesn”, there is a motley programme extra for the offspring. At funny games or on a giant straw pyramid, the kids can rage themselves out. Those who like it a bit more calm, can let their faces get painted or take part in an arts and crafts workshop. And for the smart minds, there is a tricky riddle rally. Meanwhile, the parents can stroll down the numerous booths and get impressed by the fine pieces of local craftsmanship. At the Vienna Wiesnfest, everybody will make a find for sure! And to those who only want to fall in a soft bed after the exhausting tumult, we recommend one of our comfortable rooms in the Boutique Hotel Stadthalle! For the passionate Wiesn-visitors, we even offer our Indian Summer Discount, so that you have enough money for beer and grilled chicken left. We are looking forward to seeing you!
