Vienna New Year's Eve Trail
At the turn of the year 1990/91 the Vienna New Year's Eve Trail was held for the first time. Around 800,000 people from all over the world bid farewell to the old year and welcome the new year together in Vienna. Several venues across Vienna's city centre offer a varied and free programme of shows, music and entertainment, including children's activities. Gastronomes spoil visitors with local delicacies. When the city counts down the time at midnight and the Pummerin sounds, thousands of people dance into the New Year to the sounds of the Danube Waltz.
