Discover The waltz Austria

Here, waltzing is not just a word. The ball season is increasingly successful over the years, crowned by the "Imperial Ball" given at the Hofburg Palace. As there is an average of 300 balls during the course of the season, you will have no problem in attending one of them, or even participating, if the rhythm of the waltz sweeps you away.

    The word 'waltz' comes from the German word 'walzer', which means to turn in circles. It was made popular at the end of the 18th century at the balls of the Austrian capital.

    Even if it looks easy, the waltz is not something you can learn in one day, especially those with a 3-beat measure.
