May 1st Celebration

Labor Day has been celebrated on May 1st since 1890. In Vienna, this holiday is accompanied by May rallies and various entertainment hotspots. In the Prater, the celebration on May 1st is traditionally called the Maifest.

By the way, there is a rumor going ’round that the Wurstelprater season doesn’t start until the May Festival on May 1st. But that’s not true. No no no. Like the spring flowers, we are awakened from hibernation by the sun in March! 🌞😁🥳

But back to the Maifest. In the morning it offers your children magical entertainment and in the afternoon it delights you with music. Of course, many attractions in the Wurstelprater are also celebrating and offer you great discounts on this day.
