Gay "Wedding celebration" in Vienna
Lesbian and gay couples can tie the knot for life at many locations in Vienna. As for heterosexual couples, museums (e.g. Albertina, Kunst Haus) or the imperial residences of the Hofburg and Schönbrunn are available for the "civil partnership". Those who prefer things uncomplicated can also simply have the partnership registered at a registry office.
Registration is possible for all (adult) Austrians, as well as for homosexuals from abroad. Required for this is proof of citizenship, residence abroad and marital status as well as various other documents, depending on the country of origin. Detailed information can be found on the website at www.partnerschaft.wien.at or call tel. +43-1-4000-05589. A sworn interpreter must be called in if the registrants have inadequate German language skills. The most important thing: The registered partnership will be recognized in all countries where registered partnerships are allowed by law.
