New Year’s Eve Gala at Kursalon

New Year’s Eve Gala at Kursalon

See in the New Year at Vienna’s magnificent Kursalon! This is a dream end-of-year gala that takes place in a historic building of Italian Renaissance style, located within the beautiful English-style city park (Stadtpark).

This elegant building, inaugurated in 1867 and built to offer healing waters, began putting on concerts – particularly of the music of Johann Strauss – from 1868. Since then, it has been one of the established places for Viennese society to dance its famous waltzes and to express its joie de vivre. It will now host this wonderful gala, where you will also be able to experience such fun, savouring the complete programme of events that are sure to make this a truly magical evening.

On arrival at the Kursalon, you will be welcomed and shown to your table (you can choose to have dinner at the Kursalon either at 18h00 in the Restaurant Johann, or at 20h00 in the Strauss Hall), where you can enjoy an exquisite gala dinner with four courses:

  • Salad of Austrian’s marinated crayfish on horseradish mousse, corn salad, pomegranate dressing
  • Champagne cream soup, cheese stick
  • Roasted backstrap of Austrian ox, mashed potato pumpkin cracknels, assorted winter vegetables (or Vegetarian main course under request: Truffled mascarpone ravioli, fresh parmesan shavings)
  • Ildefonso of orange & bitter chocolates, stewed ginger plums

Drinks: Sparkling wine, white wine, red wine, beer, espresso and non-alcoholic drinks are included during the dinner

After dinner, you will move into the Lanner Hall to enjoy the fabulous New Year’s Concert, performed by the Salonorchester Alt Wien. This chamber orchestra, together with excellent singers and dancers, will offer you a selection of the most popular melodies by the ‘Waltz King’ Johann Strauss, and by W. A. Mozart.

If you decide to have dinner at the earlier time of 18h00, then after the concert you will have the chance to learn the steps of the Viennese waltz with a dance instructor in the Schubert Hall. This will help you to enjoy one of this city’s lovely traditions all the more: dancing a waltz at midnight.

Following this, after the dance class (for the first dinner session) or after the concert (for the second), you will move on to the Kursalon’s magnificent terrace, with its views of the Stadtpark. Here, you will be able to enjoy one of the highlights of the evening – the spectacular fireworks with music as the clock strikes twelve. This is a special and exciting moment, when you can toast the beginning of the New Year and celebrate by dancing the Viennese waltz.

After this magical moment, the party continues in the Schubert Hall, where the live music will make you want to dance into the early hours of the morning.

So why not treat yourself and enjoy a truly unforgettable occasion to celebrate such a special night.
Happy New Year! And … Cheers!

NB: The VIP category also includes a bottle of sparkling wine and a souvenir CD of music by Johann Strauss, as well as a programme and a VIP seat for the concert.
