Where can I watch Austria Euro 2020 matches in Vienna

Euro 2020 – which will of course take place in 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic – starts this Friday.

It is a momentous occasion in Austria, it is the second time in history that the Austrian team has qualified for the event (Austria co-hosted in 2008 and therefore did not need to qualify ).

As a result, the Austrian government has extended the curfew from 10 p.m. to midnight to allow people to watch the matches in bars or outdoor breweries across the country.

Led by Bayern Munich and now Real Madrid superstar David Alaba, Austria are hoping to do what no other Austrian team have done and come out of the squad.

Austria have three group matches. The first takes place on June 13 at 6 p.m. against North Macedonia, followed by the crucial clash with the Netherlands at 9 p.m. on the 17th.

The final group game – which will likely determine who finishes second in the group – will take place at 6 p.m. on June 21.

Qualifying for the round of 16 for the first time in their history, Austria will face Italy at 9 p.m. on June 26 in the round of 16.

Here’s what you need to know.

The Prater

There are plenty of places to watch football in Vienna’s huge Prater Park. Near the Prater Hauptallee, the Laola1 sports platform and the Feuerdorf have teamed up to provide enough space to accommodate up to 650 football fans.

Shade and food trucks are promised. The entrance opens one hour before the start of the match and seats can be reserved on site. Other options along the Hauptallee include Der Garten and the Spenadlwiese sports park. Reservation is recommended.

Josefstadt and Alsergrund

The Chelsea near Lerchenfelder Gürtel in the 8th district is recommended by Radio Wien as a great place to watch England play against Croatia. All games can be seen both in the restaurant in the four arches on four large screens and screens and in the pub garden on four flat screens.

Other options in the 9th district include the WUK café in Währinger Straße 59, where all games will be broadcast live and in HD in the courtyard. Wearing a mask is mandatory except at the seat for which a reservation is mandatory.

Another great option is the former AKH beach in the 9th arrondissement, where the operators of Salettl have set up a bar and palm trees.

Daisy

If you want to find Portuguese fans, head to the Portuguese restaurant Senhor Vinho in Schwarzhorngasse 8 on June 15 for Hungary v Portugal. Gasthaus zum Liebe Augustin in Reinprechtsdorfer Strae 47 and Café Siebenbrunnen in Reinprechtsdorfer Strae 27 are also planning to show the games.

Meidling

Head to the 12th district to watch the games at Gasthaus Alt Wien at Kofler Gasse 26, Strasser Bräu at Schönbrunner Strasse 253/25 or Gasthaus Maria at Wolfganggasse 16. A good choice for the Netherlands vs Austria game on the 17th June is the Hotel Orangerie at Grieshofgasse 11, according to Radio Wien – or at Biergasthof Otto at Altmannsdorfer Straße 101.

Rudolflsheim-Fünfhaus

In the Hawidere at Ullmannstrasse 31 in Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus it is possible to watch the matches in an air-conditioned hall, which could be a good idea with a heat wave set to hit Austria next week.
