Hungary Kaffeesieder Ball

Vienna, February 8, 2013

A fantastic evening in Vienna at the Viennese Coffee Traders’ Ball in the Hofburg

Once again, a group of members from the Bailliage of Hungary travelled to neighbouring Austria. A fantastic evening was spent at the Hofburg in Vienna taking part in the traditional Ball der Wiener Kaffeesieder (the Viennese Coffee Traders’ Ball).

The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is the most privileged organisation. Its attending members even take precedence over representatives from the Diplomatic Corps. They are the first to parade into the main Ballroom and are seated in the front row.

The opening ceremony is always a colourful show. Famous singers and ballet dancers are followed by a wide range of music (naturally waltz, polka and other popular music such as golden oldies, jazz, sweet melodies, Latin rhythm, rock and roll).

Besides the entertainment, there is an excellent variety of food available including the iconic Viennese sausage and the Sacher cake as well as other famous Austrian delicacies.

The attention to detail by the organisers guarantees that the circa 6,000 guests have a wonderful, memorable night.

Now, we are already looking forward to attending the 2014 event!
