Vienna City Hall: New Year's Eve Gala 2022
About the Event
Spend the magical moments of New Year’s Eve in the most exclusive location in the heart of Vienna: the famous ballroom of Vienna City Hall!
In this impressive setting, enjoy an exquisite four‐course gala dinner (included in categories VIP, A, B and Gallery), as well as the excellent selection of musical entertainment.
Your night will be musically accompanied by classical waltz sounds of the “Original Wiener Hofball Orchester”, as well as lively dance vibes of the live band “Midnight Spirits”.
At midnight, step out onto the City Hall's grand balcony to view the magnificent fireworks over Vienna’s city center: Bid farewell to the old year with a glass of sparkling wine while welcoming the New Year dancing to the tunes of the Blue Danube Waltz.
Professional dancers and vocal soloists from renowned Austrian opera houses will then perform a typical Viennese midnight show, and the rhythms of the live band will keep you entertained until early morning hours.
