New Year's in Vienna

To top off our wonderful time in Europe we spent New Year's Eve in Vienna. They turned one street into the world's largest ballroom, complete with outdoor chandeliers, which were beautiful!!



We heard a terrific outdoor concert right up until midnight with "Mo & die schonste Band von Welt. They were great!


And on New Year's Day we went to an outdoor showing of the famed New Year's concert with the Vienna Philharmonic and to the New Year's market at the Rathaus. It was a wonderful trip to a beautiful place and I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the pictures. A great weekend to all!

I am happy that you have spent the first day of the new year in the heart of the "Vecchia Europa". Your images give exactly the idea of the beautiful vacation.
Buon fine settimana.

I wonder how much it cost to put that ball together with the lights. Looks great.

Hi Lori, sorry for having been a bit absent, but you know already how troublesome it is for me to get around... Anyhow, New Year's Eve in Vienna was surely a treat, and the New Year Concert at the outdoor must have been quite nice. I saw on TV and enjoyed a lot! Also loved Salzburg at night (not blurred) and the HofBräu in Munich.
Have a great weekend!
