May 1st Celebration 2023

Labor Day is celebrated on May 1st in Austria 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.

Of course, many attractions in the Wurstelprater join the celebrations and offer you great discounts on this day 🔥🔥🔥

Apart from that, you can expect a maypole at Riesenradplatz, stands with regional delicacies, an entertainment program on the Kaiserwiese and a performance show by Vienna’s helpers on the Hauptallee.
