The one Festival I am looking forward every summer in Vienna, are definitely The Vienna Harley Days. This year the Event got bigger than ever at a unique location on Kaiserwiese (Emperors Meadow) in front of the Ferries Wheel at the number 1 touristattraction-location: Prater.
If you are into the sound of Harley, this is a true MUST GO. Good mood, nice people and the smell of Rock’N’Roll. All surrounded by a parkway in shades of green from old trees.
The weather couldn’t be more summery than this weekend and the party will go on until sunday.
Motorcycle Fans from all over the world celebrate life and fun until the grand finale sunday noon, when the Harley Davidson bikers will setup on 11.30 am on the main avenue in Prater for the Big Harley Parade on the Ringstrasse, where they will arrive at 1 PM.
A fun event, which is best enjoyed in one of the street Cafés on the Ring Street.
Until then we will enjoy the spirit of Harley entertained by Country, Blues and Rock’N’Roll Bands in the food zone andenjoy Live Shows. Even shopping at the various sale stands is a thing you should consider. You will find unexpected treasures, like I did. Believe it or not. I bought Scarves and Scarf-Accessoires!
A true highlight: My first handcrafted Ruderides Scarf from California.
Another thing I wanted to get my hands on for years: Coconut Shell Ties from Bali. Truly simple but essential, if you wear Sarongs and Pareos, which I do at home or when on holidays all summer.
See you there tonight!
