Rainbow Ball (Regenbogenball)

Vienna's balls for lesbians and gays in 2017

The Rainbow Ball has established itself permanently on the ball calendar as a classic Viennese ball for gays and lesbians, and will be held for the 20th time in 2017 – at the Parkhotel Schönbrunn. The slogan is "We are unstoppable". The ball will open in the classic style with the Polonaise, followed by dancing to the waltz, foxtrot and samba.

The Rosenball is the only event that remains true to the classic Viennese ball format, opening with a traditional Polonaise. Otherwise, this ball at the Kursalon Wien in the Stadtpark is a shrill disco alternative to the Opera Ball, which is held at the same time in the Vienna State Opera. Hostess Miss Candy has made the ball a Viennese institution. Each year, prominent opera ball guests mingle with the party crowd at the Rosenball late in the evening.

The Kreativball has come a long way since its low-profile beginnings - you have to be quick these days because this event for gays and lesbians and their friends sells out weeks in advance! It is being held for the 25th time in 2017. This time under the slogan "Europe – The little bistro" (Note: The Saturday is already sold out, but tickets are still available for the Friday).

Many gays and lesbians are also attracted to the Diversity Ball. Vienna's most colorful night at the ball is held at the Kursalon Wien in the Stadtpark.
