Make music at the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna

Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna

It’s less than three weeks to the answering of that great question on a unified Europe – who’s going to win the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna?

If you want to make the journey to the Austrian capital for the annual camp sing-along, you’d better be quick… according to Airbnb, bookings to the city are up 380 per cent for the weekend.

 The 60th anniversary of the iconic competition will bring visitors from all over the world to see who can take the crown of king or queen of Europe from last year’s winner Conchita Wurst (above)… and Airbnb hosts are set to welcome some 3,800 guests.  Almost 85% of listings are now full for the final weekend, though there are still some 600 places on offer, with rooms starting from just £14 a night.

James McClure of Airbnb said: “Eurovision is such a fun moment that brings us together every year, and we’re delighted that it provides another reason for people to open up their homes and share magical, local experiences that inspire travellers from all the corners of the globe.”

This Eurovision weekend, hosts will open their homes to more than 3,800 Airbnb guests. If you fancy a spontaneous trip to Vienna to catch the ESC finals, you better hurry! For the weekend of the ESC finals, almost 85% of all Airbnbs are fully booked, leaving just under 600 homes still available from £14 per night.

The opulent B-Library Room (pictured below) near Belvedercastle for instance is on offer from just £38 per night.
