New Year’s Eve in Vienna!

New Year’s Day in Vienna is famous throughout the world for New Year’s Day Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic in the hall of the Musikverein.

This year, the director will be George Pretre, who has already conducted the Philharmonic in 2008.

In Saint Sylvester night, Vienna’s old town and especially the Town Hall Square are completely decorated with colored Christmas lights, food stalls along the streets, Christmas markets and boxes scattered in every square for concerts of rock and folk music.

Along the Danube, for a more tranquil and romantic New Year’s Eve, there are many boats where it is possible to eat and celebrate midnight enjoying the shows of fireworks that color the sky of the Austrian capital.
