Alles Walzer

HÖGL’s event tip: Let the waltz begin


No other city in the world hosts as many balls as Vienna. With more than 450 balls, the Viennese glide across the dance floor in three-quarter time. The Viennese are crazy about dancing and celebrating. In addition to the probably best-known event, the Opera Ball, we’ve put together a short list of fun and exciting events during the ball season:
  • Zuckerbäckerball (Confectioners Ball): Since 1901, Viennese pastry chefs and confectioners have been hosting their annual dance event, sweetening up their guests with a thrilling night on the dance floor.
  • Ball der Wiener Philharmoniker (Viennese Philharmonic Ball): Lovers of classical music should not miss out on this ball. At the Viennese music institution, you’ll be swept off your feet dancing until the early hours. And in 2017 the ball will be celebrating its 75th anniversary.
  • Ball der Wiener Kaffeesieder (Viennese Coffee Roasters’ Ball): The coffee roasters’ ball is among the most glamorous and traditional balls of the Viennese ball season. 

Please note: Gentlemen are not permitted to wear ties; only bowties are allowed, so make sure you have one at hand.
Should you be in need of good quality shoes for a ball night, you’ll know where to find them – at HÖGL am Graben or in the Mariahilferstrasse.
