Additional dates can be requested, subject to availability

Due to the suspension of guided tour operations at the Vienna International Centre as a COVID-19 prevention measure, we are unfortunately unable to host our youngest visitors for our traditional WienXtra Ferienspiel summer programme at the UN in Vienna this year.

Instead, this summer the UN Vienna Visitors Service is offering an alternative, off-site children’s programme. Upon request, UN Vienna Tour Guides will visit local kindergartens and summer camps to conduct a fun #UN75 children’s programme for kids aged 6-13. Duration: 90 minutes.

As the UN celebrates its 75th anniversary, we will look back at its big achievements but most importantly ask the question “Where do we want to go from here?”. Kids will be able to dive into the UN topic and in a playful way, learn how important the work of the United Nations is, how big their impact can be to reach the Sustainable Development Goals and how they can help to make the world a better place. For them and for future generations!


To request an off-site programme for a local kindergarten or Hort group, please write to tours.vienna[at] The 2020 off-site summer programme is offered free of charge, subject to the availability of tour slots.
