Gay Guide Wien
Vienna is becoming increasingly popular internationally as a gay and lesbian destination - and is winning more and more awards. In March 2018, for example, the city won "Destination of the Year" at the Australian LGBTI Awards.GayTravel.com named Vienna the best international destination and the British magazine Economist even voted Vienna the first European metropolis ever to be the world's most liveable city. Vienna scored points here above all with the topics of safety and stability. Of course, LGBT visitors love Vienna for very different reasons. Vienna offers an almost unmanageable abundance of parties for every musical taste. Indie rock, electronic and charts are the focus at the queer:beat party, disco at Club WhyNot and Balkan pop and turbo folk at the BallCanCan party. Numerous community events attract many international guests to the capital throughout the year. For example, the Rainbow Ball, a classic Viennese ball for the LGBT community, the Boylesque Festival and the Rosa Wiener Wiesn Festival in autumn. These and many other events guarantee variety for every taste - and make Vienna the perfect LGBT travel destination.
