Held in the Hofburg Palace, the Hofburg Silvesterball is the highlight of New Year’s Eve in the heart of Vienna. The program includes top-class performers from Vienna’s opera houses, dancers, bands and orchestras playing everything from waltz to jazz to modern pop, making your night at the former imperial winter residence truly unforgettable. In addition to a spellbinding opening ceremony, you will be treated to a fantastic midnight show and a firework display above the old town. Once the fireworks have subsided, keep dancing on until the early hours of the morning. There are plenty of attractions away from the dancefloor too: pick your own lucky four-leaf clover or attach your resolutions for the year ahead on the wish tree.
There are varying levels of tickets – some offering a full 4-course dinner, others reserved seats at a table (categorized by different ballrooms) while others are just entrance and nothing else. Guests can also choose to purchase Waltz dance lessons which are held at the palace earlier in the day (so that you feel confident to whirl around the dance floor later that evening)!
