Babenberger Passage (Burgring 3 / Babenbergerstrasse 1, Vienna) — Babenberger Passage, better known simply as Passage, is located directly underneath the Ring, the street that encircles Vienna’s inner district. It was originally built as a pedestrian underpass linking the national art history museum and the Hofburg Palace merely to ease the flow of traffic. That function was consigned to history long ago, and in 2003 the space was converted into the most-visited nightclub in Vienna.
Passage has a futuristic ambience, an interior designed for versatility, state-of-the-art lighting and a tailor-made sound system. The program varies from day to day and includes disco, R n’ B soul, Schlager (hit songs), house and electro. The many stars performing live at Passage have included Timbaland, Craig David, Arrested Development, Tim Toupet and more. If pure house music is more your style, you can add Axwell, Little Louie Vega, ATFC, D.O.N.S., Martin Solveig, Eddie Thoneick and others to the list of artists performing on weekends.
