The HOFBURG Silvesterball not only has an enchanting programme of entertainment in store – the fireworks above Vienna’s historic old town, the sounds of the Pummerin bell at St. Stephen’s cathedral, the traditional Blue Danube Waltz and the perennially-popular public quadrille are all part of the experience. Savour the magical atmosphere as you pluck your very own four-leafed clover, affix your New Year’s resolution to the wish tree or raise a champagne toast with us to get the new year off to the perfect start.
Experience 13 bands, orchestras and DJs in the magnificent state rooms of the Hofburg and dance to waltz, rumba, boogie-woogie and modern classics. During the opening ceremony, guests will be carried away on a musical tide by international and Austrian artists, while the midnight show never fails to deliver a uniquely entertaining experience.
