Visit the United Nations

'Holiday Games' for children

UNIS Vienna's Visitors Service actively participates in the holiday games (  "Ferienspiel") programme organized by the City of Vienna's WienXtra office.

Every year children come to the UN in Vienna to find out more about the work of the UN, celebrate UN International Years and explore other cultures. The programme is open to children aged 6-13 and lasts 90 minutes.

The theme of this year's Holiday Games at the UN in Vienna forms part of the United Nations  'Together' initiative to promote respect, safety and dignity for refugees and migrants.

Next round of Holiday Games at the UN in Vienna: Together

The United Nations has 193 member countries, and right here in Vienna you will meet children with roots in many of these countries every day. How can we ever understand each other? Come and discover how fascinating the differences between us can actually be - try learning a word in Arabic or Chinese! We'll also talk about what kind of help you might need if you imagine having to go live in a new country, and you can experience what it might feel like to spend time in an actual refugee tent.
