Meet at the Vienna City Information Office: 1010 Vienna, Friedrich-Schmidt-Platz
The tour is held in German. Participation is free of charge, registration is not required.
Vienna City Hall is an open meeting place for everyone. As a special attraction, the Vienna Anti-Discrimination Office for Same-Sex and Transgender Lifestyles (WASt) traditionally holds “Queer City Hall Tours” on the evenings before the Rainbow Parade. Welcome: Marina Hanke, Member of the Vienna City Council.
Wolfgang Wilhelm from WASt, and Elisabeth Sauter from the City Information Centre at Vienna City Hall give a guided tour of the neo-Gothic masterpiece on the Ringstraße boulevard. Highlights of the building’s magnificent architecture are presented in the context of key accomplishments for equal rights and non-discrimination, as well as the local history of lesbians, gay and trans*gender people.
Given that Vienna City Hall is also available as a splendid setting for civil partnership ceremonies and, since 1 January 2019, for same-sex weddings, the guided tour may well inspire some visitors to return soon for a more formal occasion…
