Group of LGBTQ friends in ViennaLooking for an LGBTQ-friendly hotspot to spend a weekend?

The year 2019 really will be the year for Vienna’s bustling LGBTQ community!

Not only will EuroPride (plus the Rainbow Ball, Life Ball and much more) be held in the city next year, but same-sex couples will also finally be allowed to get married. (YAY)

And yet, that’s just two of many reasons to plan a getaway to Vienna. Here we’ve put together some of our favourite ways to while away a weekend in the Austrian capital…


Nowhere is more romantic than Vienna. What a joy it is, therefore, that everyone will soon be able to get married there.

Looking for somewhere a little different to tie the knot? Couples can exchange rings at spectacular venues such as Schönbrunn Palace, Belvedere Palace or the Giant Ferris Wheel.

Vienna has much more to offer than tradition, breathtaking architecture and lots of culture. Vienna lives queer history like almost no other European city. Oh, and “same-sex traffic light couples” existed in Vienna even before they became cool. Pay a visit to the city for a look at the original queer traffic light couples. (Click here to find out more!)
