Wiener Stadthalle – Event Center

The largest event location in Austria

More than one million visitors from Germany and abroad – and several hundred events a year: this is how the Wiener Stadthalle presents itself today. It occupies a central place in the domestic and international event scene.

With its independent halls, the event center is not only the largest event location in Austria. Due to its enduring history, it is also one of the most traditional in Europe.

Wiener Stadthalle – Event-Center

The Wiener Stadthalle was opened in 1958: after more than 4 years of construction and realized according to plans by the Austrian architect Roland Rainer. Thousands of Viennese cheered their new landmark. Since the 1990s, it has been expanded by additional halls. In addition to the halls A to F here is the Stadthallenbad housed. This was built 1972-1974 on the occasion of the European Swimming Championship, which took place in ’74.

As a result, enough space was gradually created – for sports events and gala concerts, as well as major events such as the Eurovision Song Contest.

In the 1960s, the Stadthalle even functioned as a film production company. Around 25 films were produced. Since these were only moderately successful, the film engagement was discontinued in 1966 again.
