Winter Wonderland in Austria: Vienna Balls and Royal Digs at the Grand Hotel Wien

September 22, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Grand Hotel WienThe yuletide season is just around the corner and Austria is gearing up for another fun-filled winter of Christmas markets, concerts by the Vienna Boys' Choir, and balls, of course. (Vienna could be the walz capital of the world.) "The Vienna Balls are seen as the epitome of glamour and decadence," says Frommer's, and "the traditional opener is the Kaiserball at the Hofburg palace." Immerse yourself in the city's beautiful winter atmosphere during ball season, and bed down at the Grand Hotel Wien, the very hub of Viennese social life since the turn of the century. For truly royal accommodations, take advantage of the Grand Sweet Suites promotion, and get 20-40 percent off your suite until January 31, 2009.
