Welcome to the HOFBURG Silvesterball, the New Year’s Eve highlight in the heart of Vienna. We have another impressive ball programme in store for you on 31 December 2019, brimming with countless highlights at the Hofburg.

World class singers from the upper echelons of the Austrian and international opera scene, uniquely talented dancers wearing exclusive ART for ART costumes and numerous prestigious orchestras and bands – with their own brands of swinging dance music from waltz and jazz to DJ anthems – make New Year’s Eve in the former imperial residence a truly unforgettable experience.

In addition to an opulent opening ceremony, you will be treated to an exceptional midnight show against the backdrop of a spectacular firework display above the old town, the ringing of the Pummerin bell at St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the traditional Blue Danube Waltz, and the popular public quadrille in the imperial state rooms of the former Habsburg residence – to list just a few of the numerous New Year’s special moments that make an unforgettable impression year in year out.

Savour the culinary delights that await at the glamorous four-course gala dinner, the Viennese coffeehouse, the chill-out lounge and the various New Year’s buffets and bars. The official 2019 HOFBURG Silvesterball programme will be finalised and uploaded shortly.
