From 23 September to 2 October, the first Weiner Wiesn pitches its tents on the Kaiserwiese in the Prater. Austrian beer, local food, Viennese wine and all sorts of music ensure a great atmosphere.

The first Wiener Wiesn will be held in autumn 2011 against the backdrop of Vienna‘s Giant Ferris Wheel. The program offers ten days of entertainment in a traditional atmosphere: two traditional beer tents and the Wiesn Emperor Tent, with VIP places called “Emperor loggias” and an additional wine offering, await visitors. The right accompaniment to the local beer and wine is provided by Wiener schnitzels, sausages, suckling pig, pork knuckle and Kaiserschmarrn.

Musically, the program ranges from live performances by well-known folk music and hit stars to ‘schrammel’ music and party hits in the evening. Andy Borg, the Edlseer, the Monroes, Nik P. and Roberto Blanco are just a few examples from the 360-hour program of music.

A valid table reservation is required to visit the festival tents. Combination packages (seat reservation, a drink, a meal and a ride on the Giant Ferris Wheel) and special VIP packages are also available.
