While eating a sumptuous five-course gourmet dinner, expertly prepared by the hotel chefs, and sipping sparkling wine provided by the Ambassador of Austria, guests will enjoy the presentation and choreographed performance of the Ball’s debutantes and their escorts as they dance to The Merry Widow Waltz

…as well as ballerinas from a classical ballet company.

Beyond all-night access to the dance floor with different live orchestras playing, guests will also be able to play some Roulette and Black Jack at an in-house Casino or taste traditional Viennese wine and beer at an Heurigen tavern. To top it all off, they will have the opportunity to bid for great prizes at a Silent Auction, as well as the chance to win a delightful door prize.
