The Most Luxurious Places to Stay in Vienna During Holidays

| November 17, 2014

Vienna for centuries has been renowned for its classical music and grand elegant balls, so much so that it gave birth to many great composers like Johann Strauss I, Johann Strauss II, Fritz Kreisler, Alban Berg and Franz Schubert. Although many great cities were known for their great balls, Vienna is probably the only one that still stages them today, with an average of 200 great balls held annually. Although all these balls are well known in Austria, the Opera Ball is well known internationally as is the more recently initiated annual Life Ball which is held in order to support AIDs charities and has recently been attended by famous people like Whoopi Goldberg and Bill Clinton.
