Viennese Ball Tradition
The classic Viennese ball has a proud tradition stretching
back over four centuries, and has even taken the first steps towards inclusion
in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List. The full spectacle extends from
the opening ceremony featuring a debutants' committee to midnight stage shows
with dance and music performances. There is also traditional ball etiquette to
consider - from the "Damenspenden", a gift presented to the ladies, to
the requisite gown, tuxedo or formal traditional Austrian dress, Austrian
culture runs through every aspect of the Viennese ball.
