There are balls, and there are balls… (no not that kind). What we mean to say is, this fairytale ball is such a dream it blows the others out of the water.
For one magical night per year the oldest ballroom in Vienna becomes a swirling spectacle of dancers. 2,500 guests in elegant gowns and dapper tuxedos whirl and waltz beneath the ornate chandeliers, pausing when it’s time to top up their champagne glasses, obviously.
This year, you can be one of them.
The ballroom is normally home to the famous Spanish Riding School, so this is a rare and exclusive opportunity to claim the horses’ turf for a night and party like it’s, well, 1739.
The horses won’t mind, by the way: the proceeds from the ball go towards the preservation of the Spanish Riding School and the majestic Lipizzaner breed, which is the oldest cultural horse breed in Europe.
The dress code is full-length ball gowns for the ladies and tuxedos with tailcoats for the men. Because who doesn’t love an excuse to dress up like Viennese royalty from time to time?
