Vienna's balls for LGBT

The Rainbow Ball has established itself permanently on the ball calendar as a classic Viennese ball for LGBT people, and will be held for the 24th time in 2021 – at the Parkhotel Schönbrunn. The ball will open in the classical style with the Polonaise, followed by dancing to the waltz, foxtrot and samba. Disco, Rainbow Ball casino, live acts and the audience quadrille at midnight make the ball the diverse highlight of the season.

The Kreativball has come a long way since its low-profile beginnings - you have to be quick these days because this event for LGBT people and their friends sells out weeks in advance! It is being held for the 29th time in 2021.

At the same time as the Vienna Opera Ball, drag queen Miss Candy unsettles the venerable Palais Auersperg: At her Rose Ball, the guests dispense with tailcoat and evening dress and dance to house music instead of in three-four time.

Many LGBT people are also attracted to the Diversity Ball. Vienna's most colorful night at the ball is held at the Kursalon Wien in the Stadtpark. A rousing night at the Diversity Ball becomes a symbol for the colorfulness of our society, for tolerance, accessibility and mutual respect.
