Waltz and polka through the night in true old world elegance.   Get out your most stunning gowns and tails and celebrate the Leap Year in true style.

Viennese Ball Tradition

Since the Congress of Vienna, the city of waltzes has been famous for its legendary balls. Each year more than 450 balls take place in Vienna.  The city celebrates Carnival in January and February with exuberance.  The three-four rhythm is also joined by more contemporary sounds, offering enjoyable dancing for every taste.
