Greetings to the Viennese Ball

Vienna, the world capital of music, invites you to indulge in the city’s unique spirit again for a truly memorable evening following the two-year break due to the pandemic. Even during the era of Viennese Classicism, the city inspired outstanding composers like Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven and their world-famous music.

The Austrian capital city has become equally famous as the international capital of dance and Viennese ball tradition. Everywhere in the world, people mark the start of the New Year with the legendary Blue Danube Waltz and signature dance tunes written by the members of the Strauss dynasty.

Thanks to their unique music, and an atmosphere imbued with the distinctive spirit of Vienna, the traditional Viennese Balls abroad have become major international events. Finally, our guests in Ashgabat will again get to hear «Alles Walzer!» – the traditional prompt for the crowd to take to the dance floor at the annual Opera Ball in Vienna.

With the legendary Viennese Balls in other countries, the City of Vienna shares its life-affirming spirit of friendship and ease with the entire world.

The Viennese Ball in Turkmenistan counts among the most glamorous of its kind. It is a symbol for joy, peace and international understanding.

In this regard, I wish the organizers a most successful event, and to all visitors a truly unforgettable evening, as well as to enjoy the unique spirit of Vienna under the spell of traditional Viennese Waltz.


Michael Ludwig,
Mayor and Governor of Vienna.
