Gay Tips

Vienna is considered to be the gay capital of Austria, and the level of LGBT acceptance is at pretty high levels. The local gay community is huge and thousands of gay travellers choose to visit Vienna every year.  Several politically powerful people have stated their homosexuality publicly since the old times.

The gay scene of Vienna is big and colorful, featuring several gay venues dispersed through the city. During the day, you should pay a visit in one of the several gay-friendly cafes & restaurants, and taste the rich local cuisine or drink the delicious Viennese coffee in a more open environment. Some distinctive places to spend your afternoon are Cafe Berg, Cafe Savoy, Palmenhaus and Cafe Willendorf.

Even though the daylight gay scene of Vienna is pretty good, nothing compares to its gay nightlife. The entertainment options are literally doubled, ranging from soft bars-lounges to underground hardcore cruising clubs. For a chill-out atmosphere where you can relax and meet some other gay guys, you should visit Mango Bar, Felixx Bar, Village Bar, Cafe-Bar Cheri & Red Carpet.

If you want a nice clubbing experience, you should definitely visit Why Not. For a more intense gay dancing experience, you should visit Club-Losch, EAGLE Vienna,LMC VIENNA - HARD ON, and Sling. The developed gay scene of Vienna has made it a target city for several amazing gay events as well. Some popular events are Identities Queer Film Festival, Rainbow Parade and Rainbow Ball.

A particularly worthy of notice event which happens annually is Life Ball. Life Ball is an event, organised every year by the non-profit organisation AIDS LIFE, which was founded in 1992. It's the most popular HIV charity event with a serious cause that Travel by Interest - a Destsetters project fully supports! 

The local gay bars & clubs give a more spicy tone to the overall gay scene of the city by organizing several themed gay events and parties every month.

Known for the classical music and the imposing architecture, the city of Vienna radiates a liberating attitude and promise an active and joyful gay scene. As one of the most gay-friendly capitals in Europe, Vienna attracts a great number of gay travelers from all over the world. 

While Vienna doesn't have a predominant neighborhood just for gay people, gay-only places won't be a very common thing to see in the city, however there are many gay-friendly venues throughout the city. A big collection of gay-friendly hotels, saunas, gay bars, nightclubs and gay pop-up parties, states that Vienna's vivid gay scene can offer unforgettable experiences to its gay travellers. 

The best season to visit Vienna is for sure in winter, and specially during the Christmas holidays. Snow on the ground, festive decorations, and the smell of the hot mulled wine, roasted chestnuts and Christmassy sweets creates a magic scenery for romantic dates.
