Open-air Cinema – one of a kind experience for cinema addicts!

If you’ve never been to an open-air cinema, you might picture it as a place, where you drive into with your car, just like you saw in American teeny-movies. Here in Vienna it’s not like that and of course not a “dating” place for teenagers. And you don’t need your car.

It’s a one of a kind experience with a special ambience and in a nice setting: for example in the garden of a castle, or at the roof top. Vienna offers quite a choice of open-air festivals, so you, for sure, will find the best for you, no matter if you prefer international hits or the art-house films.
