Jan 14, 2022

The U.S. Embassy in Vienna issued a Demonstration Alert regarding upcoming protests, which reads in part as follows: “Locations: Announced gathering points include, but are not limited to, Vienna’s 1st District, including:

– Mariahilferstrasse / Human Rights Square

– Heldenplatz (in front of the Hofburg Palace)

– Rathaus

— Siegmund Freud Park (next to Votivkirche)

Most demonstrations in Vienna are peaceful, orderly, and well-policed. However, all demonstrations and protests should be avoided as they are often unpredictable in nature. In addition to these registered demonstrations, flash protests are always possible.
