Karlsplatz belongs to the street artists for a whole weekend from 9 to 11 September. Around 100 performances can be watched at the Buskers Festival. Numerous groups of artists from around the world present their wide-ranging repertoire at the free open-air spectacle. Musicians and drummers perform here, as do fire artists, acrobats, mime artists, jugglers and magicians.
A food area and a small market with colorful sales booths are a great place to go for a stroll and pass the time. During the day, interested visitors can participate in various workshops (juggling, graffiti, upcyling, etc.). There's also a special program for children.
When peace returns to Karlsplatz in the evening, the partying continues at the after-parties in Club U (Fridays) and Café Leopold (Saturdays).
