Events In Vienna

Yay, October starts tomorrow! The Halloween month not only marks the kick-off for university (in Austria), but also a culture-marathon. There are so many events in Vienna, that it seems impossible to keep the overview, not even speaking of attending all the cool ongoings…

Already tomorrow, on the 1st of October, the most attended art event in Austria is taking place: the Long Nights of Museums. 

With a special focus on culture and arts, to be more specific, we want to present you our picks of the events in Vienna that are going on this month. See you there!

Long Nights Of Museums

Flea Market At Neubaugasse

  • What: The whole Neubaugasse is turned into a giant flea market for 2 days: shops and food stands sell their stuff outside (they are really lucky with the weather this year), among them are fashion designers, jewelry makers, antiquity stores, bars, and many, many more. It also pays off for fans of (vinyl) music ;)
