Vienna’s nightlife might seem quaint  - if you dare to dive in you’ll see: it’s much wilder than you'd think! Good to know: In Austria we like to party late. Most clubs aren't full until 1 or 2 a.m., the party goes on until at least 6 in the morning though. 


Calling all techno-lovers

Vienna might not be Berlin quite yet, but the techno-scene is growing and growing and in terms of clubs, you definitely won’t miss out. Grelle Forelle is THE club to be - with an amazing sound-system and mesmerizing light installations you can rave the nights away! If you like more intimate settings: Das Werk ist just around the corner! With 2 relatively small floors, a killer system and an amazing international crowd it’s one of the best techno-clubs in town. Relatively new but already established are Ponyhof and Praterstraße and if you want to stay in the city-centre O - der Klub and Sass offer great Line-Ups. 

Don’t only keep up with clubs, but also DJ-collectives to stay informed about the best parties in town. Some of our favorites are ANANASPushhausgemacht and Les Suspects Habituels. Our hint: Telegram is your best bet. :-) 

Our Techno-Plan regularly provides you with the best bookings in town. Happy raving!


From Kanye to Abba

Your favorite music is the kind you can sing along to? Look no further! Vienna-Classics are Babenberger PassageVolksgarten and Vie i Pee - with varying music between Pop and Hip-Hop (and sometimes even Drag Parties), you’ll find everything your heart desires. If you want to feel the authentic Vienna-Spirit check out Fledermaus and U4. Not much has changed since Falco danced on those legendary floors - they might just be even more fun now. 


Get lost in the Bermuda Triangle

If you’re on the hunt for bars then make sure to drop by Schwedenplatz for the cheapest Happy Hours in town! There’s so many bars, chances are you won’t make it out of the neighbourhood until the early morning - that’s why it's known as Bermudadreieck. Go and see for yourself ;-) 

A great way to get to know the local scene is bar-hopping. Check out Sturzflug, if you need help finding the perfect route! 


Vienna-essentials: The Gürtel Bars

The Gürtel-Bars are a whole category in themselves. Between U6 stations Thaliastraße and Nußdorfer Straße, you'll find a wide variety of different bars and clubs. The music ranges from 80s parties to hard techno and usually the entry’s for free!
