The Press Club Concordia, an organisation of Austrian journalists and writers, has been holding a traditional ball at Vienna's City Hall for over 150 years now. As one of the few summer balls in Vienna, the next Concordia Ball will be held on Friday, June 2nd 2017 and celebrate its 120th anniversary.
While it honours old ball traditions, the organisers introduce a new exciting topic from all over the world every year. "We're building bridges between people, opinions and cultures", says Astrid Zimmermann, secretary general of the Press Club Concordia. This years Concordia Ball will skillfully combine Indian Bollywood spirit with the very best of Viennese ball tradition under the motto 'Come, dance with me!'.
It is an elegant occasion with glittering decorations and an ambiance of fun and relaxation in one of Vienna's most beautiful ball locations: the Vienna City Hall. The exquisitely decorated halls provide plenty of room for dancing all through the night, while the inner courtyard magically transforms into an outdoor dance floor.
"If there is one place in the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India."
We look forward to welcoming you to the upcoming Concordia Ball on Friday, June 2nd 2017. Please enjoy impressions of the glittering ball night 2016!
