The New Year is celebrated all over Vienna - and transforms the city centre into a giant party zone.
From 14:00 to 2:00 the following morning, top entertainment is guaranteed by the New Year's Eve Trail in the city center, at Rathausplatz and in the Prater: Enjoy punch and culinary treats and numerous stages with shows, live music of all kinds and, of course, waltzes. The classical area on Graben is one of the most popular places. Vienna's dance schools offer crash waltz dancing courses here during the afternoon. At midnight, all visitors dance the famous Viennese waltz and transform Graben into an idyllic open-air ballroom. A large firework display will be held on Rathausplatz and in the Prater at midnight.
