Austria for the LGBTQIA Community

Austria is famous for its hospitality. Discover a place where everybody is welcome.
On January 1st 2019, same-sex-marriage will become legal in Austria. This is after a ruling by the country's highest court, which makes Austria the first country in Europe to recognize same-sex-marriage as a fundamental human right. 

This ruling reflects Austria's social climate, which has gradually shifted over the past decades. Austria had a somewhat conservative flavor due to the prominence of the Catholic church, but today it is not only welcoming for members of the LGBTQIA community, but a colorful hotspot for travelers who want to experience culture and nature in one perfect package. 2019 will also bring EuroPride to Vienna and attract up to a million members of the LGBTQIA community!

All of Austria is safe and welcoming to travel, but we've selected a handful of special experiences for you below.
