Concordia Ball - The Journalists’ Summer Ball
Once a year, the Presseclub Concordia holds a unique summer ball to which Johann Strauss, the Waltz King, dedicated many of his famous waltzes. Do you know the Morgenblätter Walzer (Morning Papers Waltz) or the Feuilleton Walzer? These two and many others were dedicated by Johann Strauss to the Presseclub Concordia and are performed at the Concordia-Ball.
For many years, the Concordia-Ball has been held in the large staterooms in the Vienna City Hall and in the Arkadenhof (the arcade courtyard), where couples dance in the open air.
