With stages set up throughout the downtown with live as well as recorded music, Vienna turns into one enormous street party on New Year's Eve. From Hip-Hop to Latin to classical music, and everything in between, Vienna has something for everyone. The place to be at midnight, however, is at the Rathaus, Vienna's City Hall to see the clock strike twelve.
This year, a Blues Brothers cover band was on stage, interrupted at midnight by Johann Strauss's The Beautiful Blue Danube, in which most everyone started waltzing. Only in Vienna!
Happy New Year! I hope 2011 brings you good health, inspiration and a great sense of fulfillment.
