On the occasion of its 150th anniversary, a section of Vienna’s Ring Road will be illuminated for the first time during the Christmas season. The Arcade-arches, which are built on the architectural style of the Ring Road, are stretched across the Stubenring, Kärntner Ring and Schubertring. Combined with classic tree lighting, this creates a unique and glamorous Christmas lighting.

The examples were international boulevards and streets, which every year inspire visitors from all over the world with their light spectacles. Just think of the charming Champs Élysées in Paris or the lively Oxford Street in London. They all sparkle in gorgeous colors and so pleasing young and old to the Christmas festival.

The Vienna Chamber of Commerce, after an intensive design and planning phase, sets a bright light for tourism and trade. Every year, the Christmas lighting attracts numerous people to Vienna and the Viennese shopping streets.
