The Wiener Wiesn will make its debut in the Prater park this fall in a premiere overflowing with beer, wine and music. In Fall 2011 the first ever Wiener Wiesn will put four giant marquees on the Kaiserwiese meadow, directly in front of the Giant Ferris Wheel in the Prater Park. In addition to the VIP Kaiserzelt marquee and two traditional beer tents for 1,600 and 2,000 guests, there is a Wiener Weinzelt with a wine tavern atmosphere. The new event will have a strong Austrian flavor, with Wiener Schnitzel, sausage, roast pork and crispy pork knuckle on the menu. The beer, too, comes from Austria.

Inside the marquees, the soundtrack to the festival includes Schlager pop, traditional Schrammel music and Volksmusik from Austria and abroad – headline acts include Andy Borg, die Edlseer, die Monroes and Neuwirth & die Extremschrammeln.

Admission to the four marquees is only permitted with a valid table reservation, and access to the festival site is free of charge.

This announcement is made possible by the tourism newsletter of Austria.
