Vienna, Austria
Waltz into the New Year in style at the New Year Eve’s Ball at the iconic Hofburg Palace, once the seat of Austrian monarchs. If you are lucky enough to get hold of a ticket (they are given out via a draw of lots), don’t miss the Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Day concert. Finish off the evening by raising a toast to your fellow gastronomes at a gala dinner at the Town Hall.
