Festive Balls in Vienna: The 2020 Ball Season

Ballroom dancing in the 'Waltzing' Metropolis

Experience the balls in Vienna and dance the night away in style. 

It's certainly no coincidence that one of the most popular waltzes by Johann Strauss is called 'Wiener Blut' (Viennese Blood or Viennese Spirit).
