Do’s:

  • Buy a ticket for public transport. A high penalty is levied upon the defaulters.
  • Observe "Keep off the Grass" where signs request it. Keep the place green for the next visitor.
  • Dress code is important for the concerts and operas or clubs and fine dining restaurants.
  • Expect to pay a small sum (50 cents) to use some restroom facilities.
  • Be alert as pickpocketers are active in the area of St. Stephen’s Cathedral (Vienna) and on crowded streetcars (trams) or subways (U-Bahn). Some work in pairs or sometimes in threes.

  • Leave the shop at least 5 minutes before the closing time.

Don’ts:

  • Expect everyone to speak English.
  • Expect English-language menus in all places.

Night Life

Vienna's club scene is all about parties with the music of the highest quality. Electronic music from Vienna is known for creating an international sensation and for a good reason. The parties range from chic to underground. Clubs such as Flex have already attained cult status. The program there is just as varied as at the city's other party venues.

Chic & Cool: 
Chic, elegant and cool – with a good dose of design. That describes the ‘in’ places to go to in Vienna. Where people head to dance, eat and drink – in an ambiance that has to be seen. The many establishments are just as stylish as the crowd that frequents them.

Young & Wild: 
A lively club scene has grown up in Vienna in recent years. The venues are a breeding ground for electronic music, and many of Vienna’s DJs enjoy international success. Party people celebrate in new locations such as Grelle Forelle and Fluc. Flex, on the Danube Canal, has even been voted one of the best clubs in the world. A young crowd also likes to party in dance temples such as the Praterdome and the legendary U4.

Trendy Haunts: 
Cool music is not only played in Vienna’s clubs and discos. The city also meets to “hang out” in coffee houses and bistros, in former cinemas or in the Naschmarkt. The people to be found in these places are as colorful as what’s on offer.

Live Locations: 
Apart from the major concert halls, live music is also played in many clubs in Vienna. This is mostly followed by a party with DJs. That is typical of Vienna’s entertainment landscape. Hardly a single club is reserved for a specific musical genre. Concerts alternate with Techno, Indie and Drum’n’Bass parties.

Electronic Sounds: 
Not only do fans of the waltz get their musical money’s worth in Vienna. Lovers of electronic sounds find plenty of opportunities to listen in and dance the night away on the Danube Canal, beneath the Giant Ferris Wheel, on the Gürtel, and in tucked-away courtyards.

Thriving Nightlife under the Subway: 
The Gürtel Ring Road is fast becoming the nerve center of Vienna’s nightlife. Old stagers Chelsea and B72 are being joined by new music venues in the arches under the elevated subway.

Albertina Passage: 
The dinner club at the Vienna State Opera offers sophisticated cuisine, live jazz music and DJ sounds in a futuristic ambiance.

Fluc: 
Located directly on Praterstern, the Fluc has been the main driving force behind the renaissance of nightlife in Vienna’s second district.

Must See

  • Vienna, Austria’s capital, lies in the country’s east on the Danube River. Mozart, Beethoven, and Sigmund Freud were a few well-known residents there. 
  • Tour the Ringstrasse by tram. Take the yellow Vienna Ringtram (Wiener Linien) from Schwedenplatz for a 25-minute round trip.                                    
  • Soak in city views from St Stephen's Cathedral.                                            
  • See a puppet show at the historic Marionette Theatre.         

Experiences

Austria's capital is famous for its cultural events, imperial sights, coffee houses, and cozy wine taverns.
