Every year on 1st of May a festival called "Maifest" is taking place in Viennese Prater, of course it is taking place in 2018 too.
Within a few steps, right around the corner of our hotel, you can reach Praterstern. And that's just where Prater starts. From Praterstern a 4,4km long alley called "Prater Hauptallee" is heading to "Lusthaus", a beautiful pavillon. Next to this long pedestrian area (at the eastern end at Praterstern) you will find "Wurstelprater" - the famous amusement park in Vienna. The more western you go, the more nature you will see . people love to relax in this nature hotspot in the middle of the city.
At Kaiserwiese, right next to the Giant Wheel ("Riesenrad") the Maifest is taking place. From 1 p.m. on, several musicians will entertain you on a music stage. You don't have to pay any entry as it is for free.
Acutally this festival is very popular. As this day is a national holiday many people come to Prater every year. Additionally many entries of amusement businesses will be reduced. So this day could be fun for the entire family - no matter if you want to ride a bumper car, rollercoaster or merry-go-round - you will definetely find something that you like.
At the end of the event, a grand display of fireworks will take place at Kaiserwiese at about 9:50 p.m.
The entire team of Austria Classic Hotel Wien wishes you a great day and just the best weather so you can make great memories during your stay in Vienna!
