What is The Wiener Ball?

The Wiener Ball is a Viennese debutant ball. The ball is opened by an opening dance done by debutants in pairs.

Anyone is welcome to visit The Wiener Ball if they have a valid entry ticket. You can purchase entry tickets on the website.

 What types of entry tickets are there?

There are free entry tickets (without reserved seating) and entry tickets with seating booths next to the dance floor. During the ball, there will be opportunities to settle down for a conversation or to rest your feet after a waltz. However, the seating booths guarantee you reserved seating and a good view of the dance floor for the entire ball.

Booth tickets are optional, and can be added to general tickets after purchase.
