Any visit to the city where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart produced some of his finest work and spent most of his life must take in some music and opulence, and Vienna’s Medical Doctors’ Ball (Wiener Arzteball) is perhaps the best chance to do this.
On January 31st at 21:30 the 59th ball is hosted at the Vienna Hofburg and it will give the chance for lovers of the Blue Danube Waltz to dance to the piece in the city through which the river flows.
The Medical Doctors’ Ball is well-known even in a city famous for its balls and the location of the Vienna Hofburg offers a feast for the eyes, as well as the ears and the feet.
Tickets for those wishing to attend cost €85 (£77), with student tickets available for €30 (£27).
However, potential attendees should be warned that this is a high-class ball – there is a strict dress code, meaning men should dig out their tuxedo or military uniform, while women will have the chance to wear a floor-length evening dress.
