“Friends in Vienna” encounter zone

14:00 – 02:00

Vienna is a city of togetherness in which no one should start the new year alone. That’s why this year a large space for encounters, called “Friends in Vienna”, will be set up on the square between Café Landtmann and Burgtheater. There, on the last day of the year, any barriers between cultures, nationalities and religions will be lifted in an amusing setting.

With its slogan, “Into the New Year together, not alone”, the “Friends in Vienna” encounter zone will offer a DJ stage as well as a special way to meet people: a moderated speed-dating lounge where one can get to know new people in a fun, uncomplicated way. The focus is not so much on finding a partner but on connecting people to each other and spending a fun New Year’s Eve together. The “Bussi bar” on the roof of the speed-dating lounge is the ideal place to toast the new year with one’s new-found friends. You can make new acquaintances, forge lasting friendships, or simply dance into the new year together.
