Austria National Day 2017

Austria National Day 2017

Since 1965, October 26th has been celebrated as Austrian National day,

when Austrians across the globe celebrate the end of the country’s post-WWII occupation and the Declaration of Neutrality, a constitutional law on permanent neutrality.

The capital city of Vienna hosts many of the national day celebrations in Heldenplatz, also known as “Heroes Square.” To encourage interest and a better understanding of the history of Austria, federal museums offer free or reduced-fare admissions on a national day.

For Austrian citizens living abroad, Austrian embassies around the world host receptions showcasing Austrian music and cuisine.
