The staterooms are transformed into a beautiful sea of flowers and laid out for a silver service ‘royal’ banquet. Later world-class soloists from the Vienna State Opera and Volksoper perform memorable melodies from famous operas and popular operettas, and international debutantes from the Elmayer Dance Schooltake to the dance floor for the opening ceremony.

Your evening commences with horse drawn carriages from the hotel to the Hofburg Palace for a drinks reception in the foyer before making your way up to the one of the state rooms via the Grand Staircase for the gala dinner.
