In 1956, Vienna acquired the Vienna Stadthalle, thanks to architect Roland Rainer, as a flagship for modern concerts and shows. In those days, the unheard of size made events in a class of their own possible from the outset and brought the world elite, from Louis Armstrong and Deep Purple to Frank Zappa, closer to a euphoric audience.
Since the modernisation, and construction of the second Hall F, the spectrum of events has grown even wider: besides exhibitions, trade fairs, sport events, shows and musical productions, top stars can also be seen on a regular basis.
Over 60 years, 15.000 shows
With over 300 events and around one million visitors annually, the Vienna Stadthalle is Austria's largest event center and one of the top 10 arenas in Europe.
