As every year the city of Vienna will celebrate into the new year at several stations in the city centre - the so called Sylvester path. You can visit 12 different places where people will celebrate about 12 hours in total. The celebration into the new decade starts at 2 p.m. on 31st of December 2019 and ends at 2 a.m. on 1st of January 2020. In addition the famous Viennese New Year's Concert will be shown on big screens at 3 different places - such as in front of the town hall.
The following 12 stations are part of the Sylvester path in VIenna:
- Am Hof
- Kärntner Straße
- Aspern Seestadt
For the detailed program please visit the official website. In general we do highly recommend you to use public transport devices as lots of people we travel to the city centre. The entry is free and of course there will be high security controls as well as good music, food and wine. Please also do note that you are not allowed to bring your own fireworks - just sparklers are allowed!
Unfar from our hotel - in famous amusement park Prater - there will be held on of these 12 mentioned stations. In addition to the regular christmas market that already starts at 12a.m., a local radio station DJ will entertain you with good music right in front of the Giant Wheel, starting at 8p.m.. At midnight the entire place will shine in all colours as a 12 minute long firework will take place, which will be synchronised with music.
We do wish you a wonderful New Year's Eve in Vienna and a happy, healthy and successful year 2020.
Your team of Austria Classic Hotel Wien ♥
P.S.: One thing that we are wishing for is snowfall on New Year's Eve. With a little luck you can also enjoy this great view then:
