Summary

Austria

Pack your dancing shoes and prepare to waltz the night away at one of Vienna’s most prestigious balls. You’ll be put through your paces by the city’s top dancing school to prepare you for this unforgettable experience, and you’ll also have plenty of time to explore the handsome Hapsburg streets of the Austrian capital.

AWESOME ELEMENTS INCLUDED IN THE TOUR PRICE:

  • Entrance to one of Austria’s most exciting balls: the Pharmacists Ball, Boku Ball, Bonbon Ball or Juristen Ball 
  • A two-hour dance lesson with the city’s leading dance school
  • Time to explore the elegant yet cosmopolitan city of Vienna, with entrance to three of the Austrian capital’s top museums included in your tour

We’ve secured hard-to-acquire tickets to 2019's most exciting Viennese balls. Steeped in tradition, these events may have a long history but they’ve morphed into multi-generational, spectacular affairs that go on well into the early hours. Our chosen balls take place in Vienna’s majestic Hofburg Palace and Konzerthaus. If you’re nervous about the idea of strutting your stuff on this prestigious stage, or you simply need to brush up on your waltz, then don’t worry, as your trip includes a two-hour dance lesson at the illustrious Elmayer Dance School. An experienced teacher will be on hand to help you hone your technique, and prepare you for your chosen ball. 

You’ll also have free time to explore Vienna, a city steeped in imperial grandeur. The Habsburg emperors left their capital with a rich legacy of magnificent architecture, from the sprawling Hofburg Palace complex to the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, one of the world’s most impressive collections of European art. Our three-night experience includes entrance to both of these stellar attractions, along with the cutting edge Leopold Museum of modern art, home to works by the likes of Klimt, Kokoschka and Schiele. The foodie scene here is an increasing part of the city’s appeal, with a host of innovative restaurants pushing Austrian cuisine in exciting new directions, and Vienna’s famous coffee houses are something of an institution.

Itinerary

We’re offering a three night package centered around four of Vienna’s most atmospheric balls: 

Pharmacists Ball, 19/1/2019

What better venue to dance the night away than in Vienna’s Hofburg Imperial Palace. Staged annually by the Austrian Pharmacist’s Chamber, this ball takes place at this historical and magnificent venue. Expect stunning performances, spectacular music and plenty of dancing throughout the night.

Boku Ball, 1/2/2019

Held in Vienna’s impressive Hofburg Palace, prepare yourselves for a night of dancing, fabulous music and fun.

Bonbon Ball, 1/3/2019

Hinted at in the name, the annual Bonbon Ball at Vienna’s Konzerthaus is dedicated to all things sugary, sweets and candy. With a noticeably younger feel and more relaxed atmosphere, this delightful ball continues to enchant visitors and Austrians alike. What’s more every year the sweetest ball queen is crowned - attend this year and it could be you! 

Juristen Ball, 2/3/2019

Held in Vienna’s impressive Hofburg Palace, this ball takes place in the imperial palace’s spectacular state rooms with their soaring vaulted ceilings and beautiful decor. You’re in for a treat: the prestigious and highly regarded Elmayer Dance School will open the ball with a fabulous routine and it’s then over to you to put your dance steps into practice and waltz the night away.

Unlike some, our tickets include allocated table seating so you can relax and fully enjoy the event.

The highlight of both events is the Viennese Waltz – for which you’ll be well prepared.

Our trips include a two-hour dance class at the highly regarded Elmayer Dance School, the city’s most prestigious place to hone your steps. Run by the Elmayer Family for generations, it leads the waltz at many of Vienna’s balls. During a two-hour lesson in an air-conditioned studio, you’ll learn the moves and hone your technique with an experienced teacher.

Your trip includes plenty of free time to get acquainted with Vienna, one of the most photogenic capitals in the world. Take in the grand, wedding-cake architecture of the Ringstrasse, but make time for the other side of the city too: In summer, parts of the Danube become wild swimming baths, with little cafes and kiosks at their sides, while there are also numerous parks and green spaces which you can hire bikes to explore. Don’t miss the cityscape from atop the Wiener Reisenrad, the antique Ferris Wheel that’s become a city landmark, as well as a buzzy food scene and some seriously relaxing spas to ease weary, post-dance limbs – hammams are big business here.

We provide entrance tickets to three of Vienna’s must-sees: The Kunsthistorischen Museum, housed in a palatial building on the grand Ringstrasse and home to an impressive collection of Old Masters and ancient artefacts; the Hofburg Palace, once seat of the Habsburg Emperors with a museum dedicated to national heroine, Empress Sisi; and the ultra-modern Leopold Museum, packed with works by Schiele, Klimt and Kokoschka.
