VCC Survey 2023: Safety in Vienna's Nightlife

Participation in the Vienna Club Commission Survey on the topic of safety in Vienna's nightlife is open to anyone who attends events in Vienna on an irregular or regular basis from March 1 till April 12.


Going out? Safe.

But how can we go out safely in Vienna? 
What's a no-go when going out in Vienna? 
What do you need to feel safe in Vienna's nightlife?

Vienna’s bars, music venues and nightclubs are essential places of social exchange for many people. The Vienna Club Commission wants to find out how safe you feel in Vienna's nightlife and where you see room for improvement. 
It doesn't matter if you only go out once in a while, regularly attend events, or work in the field. 
The aim of the survey is to obtain representative data on safety in Vienna's nightlife for the first time.

Sensitive content - heads up: The anonymous survey sometimes goes into detail with certain questions about discriminatory, harassing or assaultive incidents and situations that you may have witnessed or experienced yourself. If you don't want to answer these, that's totally fine. There is a "do not specify" option.

Based on the findings, the Vienna Club Commission would like to develop a strategy with concrete tools for the stakeholders in the Viennese club and event context in order to make Vienna's nightlife safer for all involved.

Each voice counts, each voice is important, each voice helps to shape Vienna's nightlife.

Thank you for your important contribution!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact


Inspired by the Berlin Club Survey of the Club Commission Berlin / Awareness Akademie Berlin with their campaign Rave?Safe., the focus groups of the Vienna Club Commission Safer Party - Safer Nightlife & Safer Nightlife - Strategy Development, consisting of volunteers from the club and event context, worked on the conception of the survey on the topic of safety in Viennese nightlife. 

The survey can be completed between March 1 till April 12 and will then be evaluated in cooperation with the Viennese social research institute EDUCULT.
