La Fête d’Anniversaire – Maria Theresia lädt zum Tanz

Once a year, the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna is transformed into a festive ballroom to host its annual Charity Ball, a special highlight of the academic year. This traditional ball is a harmonious fusion of the Viennese ball culture and the cosmopolitan spirit of its guests.

In 2017, we are celebrating the 300th birthday of Empress Maria Theresa, the founder of the Oriental Academy - later to be known as the Diplomatic Academy. In her honour, we invite you on a journey back to the Habsburgs’ court: Dance the night away in the midst of the regal grandeur of the late Empress’ residence.

We are delighted to welcome you on February 11th, 2017 to join us at the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna for a majestic return to the baroque glory of Austria in the 18th century.
