We composed a list of ten highly recommended nightclubs in Vienna, so if you are heading for some serious parties, add few of these on your list.

The Viper Room

Located at Landstr Hauptstr 38, the Viper Room is based two levels below the surface. Hence, you better leave your smartphone at home, since there’s no signal down there. The club does not feature any resident DJs, nor has any specific program, however it is packed to the roof during the weekends. At occasions, this place organizes many events ranging greatly: from LGBT events to heavy metal gatherings, making it a truly diverse hotspot.


There is not a single Viennese person who is not familiar with the Pratersauna club. Being a former sauna and a swinger club, today this is the hottest place to be in the city. You can choose from a variety of genres inside, from live electro acts to minimal techno DJ performances at the same time on different floors. The charm of the old sauna is kept and skillfully blended with a more contemporary look. Before you leave, make sure to glance at their unique toilets!

Donau Techno Nightclub

Up for some heavy partying and even harder drinks? Then, we recommend to add the Donau Techno nightclub on your agenda. Since there is no large sign or an extravagant entrance, the place may be a bit difficult to find. Just head to Karl-Schweighofer-Gasse 10 and look for a front door guarded by a bouncer. This club is ideal for the techno-loving crowds. Featuring huge visual designs all over the walls, the interior transforms into a giant projecting screen. And, before you head home, make sure to try some of those sausages from the Austrian takeaway stand called ‘Wurstelstand’ placed in the middle of the bar.
