Vienna’s Wrestling Tradition

Wrestling has a long tradition in Vienna’s Wurstelprater – as early as 1890, people were wrestling in a tent here. In the 70s, the high point of Viennese wrestling shifted to the Heumarkt. In 2017, Marcus Vetter, president of the “Wrestling in Wien” association, brought wrestling back to the Wurstelprater and revived it. This year Prater Catchen will take place for the 7th time. You can see some impressions from last years event in the gallery.

Experience the spectacular Pratercatchen live and come along when it’s time to ring the bell again!
