The 65th Medical Doctor's Ball takes place at the Hofburg Vienna on Saturday, January 31st, 2015 (Organisation: Vienna Medical Chamber)

The opening will be celebrated at 09:30 pm

It would be a shame to visit Vienna without brushing up your waltz and hearing for one of the city's most famous balls. There is a wide range to choose from, but the one to go for is probably the "Wiener Ärzteball" in the stunning ballrooms of Hofburg Vienna, famous for its elaborate and splendid decorations.

The last Saturday of January belongs annually to thousands of dancing doctors. It is a fact that the Vienna Medical Doctor's Ball has earned an outstanding role amongst the many traditional ball events. Apart from regular guests from Austria, more and more visitors from abroad want to join Vienna's carnival highlight. Surely, the "Wiener Ärzteball" is soul medicine, with dances and a jolly atmosphere which lasts till the early hours.

A breath-taking atmosphere, sparkling champagne and rousing music are guaranteed on this spectacular top-class ball night.

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.
