Vienna City Guide For Stag Weekends
Vienna is considered more of a luxurious bachelor party destination than its cheaper competitor Budapest. Still, it's equally exciting with its vibrant clubbing scene, thrilling daytime activities, and high-quality standard of accommodation. Undoubtedly, the Austrian capital is fast becoming one of the leading stag do locations in Europe.
The Ultimate Travel Guide For A Stag Party In Vienna
Stag parties are all about dabbling in drunken antics, chatting up gorgeous women you'll never have a chance with, and making memories that will last a lifetime. Vienna is the perfect place to do this. Dance the night away in underground parties by Gürtel while chancing your arm with sexy locals.
You never hear much about Vienna's nightlife scene simply because other European cities often overshadow it. Let us tell you, you're in for a hectic time. Sample some tasty Austrian beer by Karlplatz, the city's main square home to a plethora of bustling bars like Cafe Heuer. Once darkness begins to creep in, take things up a notch at If Dogs Run Free Bar, known for their delicious but oh-so-strong cocktails. Every night at a bachelor party should always end in a nightclub, so we have something special for you. Flex is one of the biggest European clubs; there, you'll find a wide range of tunes for you lads to dance to while you get absolutely slaughtered.
Have you heard of Vienna's infamous Bermuda triangle? It's a neighbourhood in the capital that got its name from the number of people who went missing after partying hard all night. Most of them woke up the following not having a clue what happened. After hearing that story, one or two people in your group might spring to mind.
Austria is well known for its huge beer culture, and Vienna is no exception. Austrian beer is some of the tastiest in the world. It's a country with over 300 breweries that brew over 1000 types of beer, so there is plenty of variety for you lads when you arrive. Gösser, Ottakringer, and Stiegl are some of the most-drank beers in Austria. It would be a crime to visit Vienna and not try some of these bad boys. If you would like to sample something a bit more local, make a day trip to the local Ottakringer brewery that has been filling up local Wiener's pint glasses since 1837.
You may be at a bachelorette party in Vienna, and wine is more your thing. Well, you're in for a fun time, ladies, because the wine scene in Vienna is incredible. It dates all the way back to the Middle Ages, when each district in the city had its own vineyard. Fast forward to 2023, Viennese wine is considered a connoisseur favourite around the globe, and the capital now has over 630 wine producers. Take a guided tour of one of the many wineries like the Cobenzl Vineyards, where you'll get to see what wine pressing looks like with your own eyes and sip on six aromatic wines.
Vienna isn't all about drinking. The city has a rich history and is the number one place in the country to experience Austrian culture. Stop by the breathtaking Schönbrunn Palace, which was built in the 1600s and still holds significant importance among Austrians. The impressive building can be admired from the outside free of charge, or you can buy a ticket online to take a tour of the inside. A visit to Vienna wouldn't be complete without stopping by the Monolithic St. Stephen's Cathedral, which scrapes the sky over Stephensplatz. Have a peak of the inside and admire the charming Gothic designs; get close to one of the 18 alters and make it your mission to see the ancient catacombs. You can't go to Vienna without seeing an evening opera show. It may not be the same as going on one of our lively pub crawls, but it's a way to see how the locals spend their downtime. The Vienna State Opera House in the Innere Stadt district boasts a Neo-Renaissance style interior and hosts many entertaining live opera performances throughout the year. If you're lucky enough to be in the city when one is being held, your group needs to check it out (If it's something your stag is interested in, of course).
As you can see, Vienna has all the ingredients to hold the bachelor party of the century. And we have yet to begin to tell you how we can make it even better. Prepare yourselves for an unforgettable lads' trip.
The Best Ways To Get To Vienna For A Stag Holiday
Vienna is located in the heart of Europe, so to say it's well-connected would be an understatement. Here are the most efficient ways you get to the city with little to no stress.
Car - If you're based on the mainland of Europe, it's easy for you to get to Vienna by car. For example, Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, is an hour's drive away, and Munich is just under five hours away. Driving gives you and your pals the flexibility to be able to go wherever you like during the daytime before you party all night long. One downside to bringing your own vehicle is that parking prices in the city are pretty high. Since March 2022, the government has introduced a fee-based short-term parking zone regulation in force all over the city centre, so it would be hard to avoid. One way to get around this is by booking a hotel with free parking, so you don't have to spend a penny.
Train - Vienna is well connected to many other European capitals, and what better way to get there than by taking a train (the scenic route)? Trains to the Austrian capital are incredibly fast and efficient and sometimes cheap. The Deutsche Europe Saver fare from Munich to Vienna will only set you back 24 euros, and if you were to come from Hamburg, prices start from 37.90 euros. We recommend purchasing your train tickets as soon as you know when you will be travelling to Vienna for a lads' stag weekend because seats on the train sell out quickly.
Bus - A longer alternative, but usually even cheaper than trains, are buses. There are many companies that provide comfortable direct routes to Vienna from cities all over Europe. FlixBus is the most popular, offering affordable fares from Cologne for 27.99 euros and Prague for 22.99 euros.
Plane - Maybe your hometown isn't as close to Vienna, and you need to fly. That's okay Vienna's international airport is a hub for Austrian Airlines and some low-cost carriers, including Ryanair and Wizz. There are hundreds of flights into the city daily, and some great deals with the airlines we mentioned above. Using tools like Skyscanner and Google flights will be able to find you the cheapest way to get to Vienna safely.
The Best Accommodation For Stags In Vienna
You won't struggle to find accommodation when you're in Vienna. The metropolis is built for tourists catering to millions of visitors from all over the planet every year.

Nightlife: Where The Real Mischief Happens At Every Stag Party In Vienna
Vienna's nightlife scene knocks it out of the park when it comes to stag dos. Exploding with energy and flamboyance and catering to an array of different tastes, you're in for a good time. You could start the night in a fancy cocktail bar sipping tequila-infused margaritas and end it at a dance party in an old incineration plant. It's no joke. The Austrians love to party hard.
When the weather is nice in the summer, all of the action happens down by the Danube Canal. The outdoor areas of the trendy bars down there are filled to the brim with people. Sometimes you won't be able to get a seat. Check out venues like Tel Aviv Beach and Istro's Rooftop Bar + Terrace for a fun time. Bars like First Floor and TOGA are ones to check out in Vienna's nightlife district Schwedenplatz (the Bermuda Triangle, as we mentioned above). This is the part of the city where most people will end their night. It's centrally located, so you'll only be a short drunken walk back to your hotel. If you're stuck trying to decide where to go, join one of our pub crawls. Follow our experienced guide around the city to the best bars over a couple of hours. A messy but fun night to remember.
Every Bachelor Group Should Visit These 6 Bars, Dance Cafés, And Clubs When In Vienna
Flex - Established in the 90s, Flex is situated in an old subway shaft along the Danube Canal and is a venue every group of lads goes to when in Vienna. If you and the boys are fans of techno, this spot will be right up your alleyway. When the crowds get too much, you can head outside and finish your beers while sitting along the Danube watching the sun come up early in the morning.
Krypt - This hidden trendy bar could be classified as a speakeasy. It used to be a prohibited jazz bar during the 1950s and has remained alive ever since then. Enjoy some crafty drinks like the "Floating On Clouds" while listening to some authentic jazz music before hitting the club later that night.
O Club - If you're in search of a more sophisticated clubbing experience, check out Club O. It's a venue that specializes in electronic music, hosting a number of well-known DJs throughout the year. Saturdays are "super disco" nights where songs from that time are played all night long. You better bring your dancing shoes because things are going to get groovy.
Club Heidi - Dance the night away with the boys at a chalet located on Ringstrasse boulevard. Decorated with alpine elements and offers party lovers an apres-ski experience in the centre of Vienna. Why hit the slopes for a dance when you can have it right in the heart of Vienna?
Kleinod - Most cocktail bars usually have an unwritten rule that dancing shouldn't happen; well, that rule isn't in place at Kleinod. While the dance floor isn't huge, it's still an area where you gents can move your hips with a Tom Collins in hand. Kleinod's menu has 29 carefully selected drinks for you to choose from. Be sure to go easy on them, though. They're known for their big pours.
Inc Hip Hop Club - Last but not least, we have to mention Inc. It's a hip-hop club that plays a blend between German and USA rap as well as some R&B thrown in there too. The club's interior is one of a living room with comfortable couches, shiny chandeliers, and cool graffiti designs. It's well worth a look if you're tired of the boom, boom from the techno music.
Things You Need To Do When Visiting Vienna
Drive a motorboat on the Danube - Has your stag always dreamt about driving a motorboat? Now's his chance to do it. Learn from a professional all about controlling one of these high-speed vehicles on water. Familiarize the controls, understand safety, and gain an understanding of how to anticipate other boats. Once the trainer knows the groom to be is comfortable, it's his turn to show him what he's made of for 40 minutes. It's all up to him. He's the captain now!
Discover Vienna's coffee scene - Nothing wakes you up more after a night on the beer than a warm cup of java. Vienna is well known as one of the best destinations for coffee. Elegant coffeehouses sit on every corner, waiting for passers-by to come in and purchase themselves a cuppa. These establishments aren't just like any coffeeshops. They scream opulence and offer visitors memorable encounters that will stay with them for a long time. Cafe Central is a popular coffeehouse among locals and tourists for serving the finest espressos and sweet treats.
