St. Patrick’s Parade

Not in Wurstelprater, still worth mentioning: If you haven’t had enough green beer and Irish flair on Saturday morning, you can continue straight to the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in downtown Vienna. Participants gather at the Schottenkirche; starting at 11:30, the route then leads via Freyung, Herrengasse, Michaelerplatz, Schauflergasse, Ballhausplatz, Löwelstraße and Josef-Meinrad-Platz to the Burgtheater. The organizers Shamrock Dance Company Vienna, Vienna Gaels GAA and Austro-Irish Society promise lots of fun and music.

When: Sat, March 18 from 11:00
Starting point: Schottenkirche
End point: Burgtheater from approx. 12:15 (until 16:00)
