Intercultural neighbourhood and local community festivals

The City of Vienna supports initiatives and activities that promote good neighbourly relations and cooperates with the many clubs and associations in the districts and communities.

A young man and an elderly man shake hands after a game of chess.

Good neighbourly relations improve the quality of life for all.

Good neighbourly relations need a solid and sound basis as they are the prerequisite for integration and good relations between people from different ethnic and social backgrounds.

Municipal Department 17 - Integration and Diversity (MA 17) initiates and organises neighbourhood and local community festivals.


Getting to know each other

It is essential to establish good neighbourly relations and improve the quality of life for all. Neighbourhood and local community festivals focus on joint activities and maintaining contacts. They provide the opportunity to talk and get to know each other (better).
