For motorbike enthusiasts, Vienna will be the center of the universe from 13 to 15 May, when the Vienna Harley Days hit the stages with much live rock, country and blues music. The highlight is a large motorcycle parade on Viennaâ€™s Ringstrasse, where hundreds of bikers will present their machines in an imperial setting.
The Vienna Harley Days start on 13 May with the Capital Ride: bikers come to Vienna from all over Austria and ride together past the Ernst Happel Stadium (Prater Stadium).
A giant festival tent city will be erected in front of the Prater Stadium. This is where motorcycle fans find everything their hearts desire: the newest Harley models from the USA are on hand for a test ride; two-wheel pro Rainer Schwarz demonstrates the best in motorcycle acrobatics on the stunt strip, and clothing and accessories are available at the sales stands.
A food zone keeps stomachs happy, while Rock, Country and Blues bands provide the right ambience on the large open-air stage. The highlight of the Vienna Harley Days is a large motorcycle parade along Vienna’s Ringstrasse – an imposing imperial boulevard that will be closed to regular traffic especially for this event.
