Tickets for New Year’s Eve Gala at Vienna City Hall
Eat, drink and celebrate Austrian style
- A 4-course dinner in the opulent surroundings of Vienna City Hall - what better way to ring in the new year?

What could be better than spending New Year’s Eve 2016 in one of the most beautiful and historic buildings in Vienna? We'll tell you what: enjoying a gala opening, a 4-course dinner, a fabulous musical program (including Austrian opera, a midnight waltz and theatrical show) and all the drinks you can handle on top). That's what. Oh, and fireworks!
This is basically the chance for you to be the star of your own sweeping period romance. It opens on the elegance of a candlelit ballroom in Vienna City Hall. The music comes up: it's traditional waltzes of the Wiener Hofball Orchestra and the live band Midnight Spirits, as you and your dance partner(s) move to classic dance hits from the 50s to today.
Then, your 4-course dinner in this exclusive location. It's a magnificent feast for the senses and fodder for a thousand jealous Instagram 'likes'.
And then, in the climactic finale, you ring in the new year with bubbly toasts on the grand balcony at midnight, as fireworks explode over the Gothic spires of the Austrian capital.
As the credits roll, your movie won't be over: in fact, your 2017 will already have gotten off to an incredible start!Ticket Categories
