New Year´s Eve 2012 in Vienna:
Vienna celebrates the change of the year in it´s historical center with hot rhythms and live gigs of all styles from classical to rock´n roll. All over the historical city center you will find show stages and tents. You just have to follow the so called "Silvester-Path". Thousands of people meet at midnight at St. Stephens square. then the Viennese use to dance with a waltz into the new year.
The dancing tower!
If you want to watch a really cool light show, then move yourself to the Donaukanal (near our number 28 on the Your Friend city map). A tower starts to dance there in the light of the night.
The New Year´s Waltz:
In Austria people welcome the new year traditionally by dancing a waltz. You are not so fit in dancing waltz? Don´t worry, the viennese dancing schools will show you all secrets.

Passing all the different open air stages along the "New Year´s Eve Path", enjoying the ancient city center and then: Waltzing into the New Year. That's how the Viennese use to celebrate this day. I was there. Watch my video!
