Vienna New Year 2015: Show, Music and Firework

DSC_4766_edited-1The Vienna New Year’s Trail is among the largest events of this kind in Europe. Attracting hundreds of thousands of local, Austrian and international visitors every year, it has become a major image and business factor for our city.”

More people from all parts of the world flock to the centre of Vienna for New Year’s Eve than for any other night of the year. This time they celebrate the start of 2015 AND a triple anniversary for Vienna: the 25th Vienna New Year’s Trail also marks the start of celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the Ringstraße boulevard in 2015, and for the 200th anniversary of Viennese waltz.

New Year in Vienna is a mixed programme of shows, music and entertainment from 2 pm on 31 December. The show stages and stalls selling a variety of delicious food and drinks are set up in twelve different locations throughout central Vienna.

The 25th Vienna New Year’s Trail is bound to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors, turning the centre of Vienna into one big street party for the last night of the year. As every year, the mix of shows, music and firework displays is designed to suit all tastes and ages.

In addition to the programme, which is set on 12 different show stages, a mouth-watering variety of culinary delights will keep the crowd partying until the small hours of New Year’s Day: with over 60 local eateries and food stalls serving hot punch and delicious international snacks, revellers will again be spoilt for choice.

The fortifying public breakfast in front of Vienna City Hall on 1 January, complete with a live transmission of the New Year’s Concert by the Vienna Philharmonic, has become a fixture of the Vienna New Year’s Trail programme by now. Old Video of  New Year Fireworks in Vienna is below:
