Going Vienna during labour day 1st May

Hi. I am thinking of visiting Vienna during labour day. Was wondering will there be any riot/protest on the 1st May. Or should I postpone my trip.... Tks

Perhaps the usual parade and a few speeches- you get bad info about riots ?

Safe enough for visitors and locals

You will be fine, unless you're hoping for shops to be open on that day...

Definitely no riots, some events in the center (mainly Rathausplatz), these "celebrations" have tremendously lost their popularity.

May 1 is a peaceful public holiday.

Do you get riots in Singapore on May Day?

No. Singapore is the most peaceful and safest country in Asia. :-)

I think you'll find Austria has the same attributes!
