Wiener Silvesterpfad durch die Altstadt 2016
On 31 December, Vienna’s old city center transforms into a giant party zone: From 2 p.m. in the afternoon to 2 a.m. the following morning, top entertainment is guaranteed by the New Year’s Eve Trail in the city center, at City Hall Square and in the Prater. Along the New Year’s Eve Trail, dozens of gastronomes serve you punch and culinary treats. Numerous stations provide a good atmosphere with a show program, waltzes, an operetta, rock, pop and folk music as well as a DJ line-up. Especially popular is the classical area on Graben. Vienna's dance schools offer crash waltz dancing courses here during the afternoon and transform Graben into an idyllic open-air ballroom. A large firework display will be held on City Hall Square and in the Prater at midnight.
