Vienna’s modest answer to the Oktoberfest
in recent years, Vienna’s hosted a beer-swilling festival with lederhosen and traditional brass band music heard in upper Austria and Bavaria. The Wiener Wiesen Fest strives to be like the mother of all beer festivals, the Oktoberfest.
We’d recommend the Wiener Wiesn Fest for anybody who’s from Bavaria and missing home, wants a taste of the country-side beer festivals, enjoys drinking over-priced beer with a pretzel, or wanting to get a taste of the Oktoberfest without leaving Vienna.
Recommended if you like: leather pants, dirndls, the Austrian national costume, drinking beer with strangers, listening to local folk music, being jolly and happy
