Detailed descriptions of poly groups in Austria

Poly groups in Austria – detailed descriptions

Austria’s largest regular poly get-togethers take place in Vienna and in Graz (more information below), most of them being informal with no host or chair. They are attended by people who are polyamorous or interested in polyamory. Many people have formed friendships over time and use these meetings to catch up with their friends, or to get to know new/more people.

Individuals of all gender identities, gender expressions, sexual orientations, abilities and disabilities, mother tongues, experience levels and of all age groups are welcome! If you have a walking disability, please inform the organizers beforehand in order to find out whether/how the location of the meetup is going to be accessible to you.

Most people at the poly meetups converse in German, but there are often some English native speakers there as well, and most people (especially the younger ones) are very much willing to talk in English. The atmosphere is generally very friendly, but please be aware: this is not a place to search for dates or one-night-stands. It has proven to be disappointing to the person who is searching. Furthermore: inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated.

We are looking forward to meeting you there!

Get-togethers/groups in Vienna

Currently there are several get-togethers/groups in Vienna every month with numbers from 20 to 60 people attending for at least part of the evening. There usually are no plenary discussions, but people chat in groups of 2, 3 or more, and with changing partners over the course of the evening. Sometimes brunches, karaoke evenings, book discussions or queer poly meetings take place. You will find detailed informations on these in the event descriptions on the calendar.

PolyTreff Wien

  • Meet, get to know, chat, drink, party with people from the greater Vienna area who think, feel, (want to) live polyamory, who are experienced or new but poly-curious and feel comfortable in the poly mindset. You are welcome to bring friends if they meet this description.
  • Persons of all gender identities, gender expressions, sexual orientations, abilities and disabilities, mother tongues, experience levels and of all age groups are welcome.
  • PolyTreff will take place at different locations every time, usually on a Friday or Saturday evening towards the end of the month.
  • Currently there are no discussions or introductions of participants.
    One of the goals is to provide a comfortable, anxiety-free, and informal setting to attendees who meet polyamorous people for the first time.

What are the differences between PolyTreff and Poly-Connect?

PolyTreff and Poly-Connect have similarities and complement each other well.
Poly-Connect always takes place at Schwelle every first Friday of the month . PolyTreff takes place at different venues and different days of the week each time.
Quite a few polys attend both regularly.
A lot of regulars of Schwelle’s events (like the Polyamorie-Gruppe) meet at Poly-Connect. Poly-Connect provides a welcoming, more homelike and intimate atmosphere due to Schwelle being cosily decorated.
PolyTreff by contrast is convenient for who just like to stop by, who don’t feel too comfortable at Schwelle or poly-curious people who would first like to talk to people in a more neutral, less intimate setting. For some people PolyTreff is the first choice because it takes place in a public venue.
