Wiener Wiesn 2017
Cherished customs, timeless tradition and socializing
From September 21 through October 8, 2017, you can slip on your dirndl and lederhosen and head to the Wiener Wiesn-Fest. Taking place already for the seventh time, the now-traditional festival will be held at the Kaiserwiese in Vienna’s Prater. High spirits and a good mood meet 700 hours of live music with 1900 musicians in three festival tents, five huts and in the Wiesn Fest Dorf (village) over 18 days.
ADEG Wiesn-Fest Dorf
Once you’ve crossed the entrance arch to the festival area, you’re already right in the thick of things: Three festival tents, five huts and the ADEG Wiesn-Fest Dorf with stands offer diverse arts and crafts and regional delicacies or invite you to participate.
Festival tents and huts
Three festival tents are available to guests: From the Gösser tent to the Wiesbauer tent all the way to Wojnar’s Kaiser-Zelt (Emperor’s Tent), all of them offer a friendly atmosphere, varied programs and the best entertainment.
The five traditional huts can be visited and used for free from 11:30 AM to 1:00 AM. On the program are live acts, upscale gastronomy, alpine flair and an Après Ski Party.
From traditional early shopping with entertaining wind music, folk music and fun in the afternoon all the way to a diverse evening program, the Wiener Wiesn-Fest offers everything needed for a traditional festival. Numerous live music acts really party hard – whether it’s hit songs or folk music, for young or old – there’s something for every visitor.
