18th Rainbow Ball: Ticket sale starts on 6 October 2014

Regenbogenball 2015

On 31 January 2015, the Viennese Rainbow Ball (Wiener Regenbogenball), which has lately turned into one of the events most popular among gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities, will endow the imperial ambience of the Schönbrunn Parkhotel and brighten it with rainbow dazzle under the slogan “True Colours”. The ticket sale for this glamorous climax of the LGBT ball season begins on 6 October 2014 at 12:00 noon.

Classical style Viennese ball tradition

The Wiener Regenbogenball will again attract over 1500 visitors, who will swing their feet dancing in the frisky-frolic classical style of the Viennese ball tradition. Since 1998 the Rainbow Ball has been a significant manifestation of lesbian and gay cultures jointly celebrated by everyone – no matter whether they are hetero, homo, bisexual or transgender. Moreover, organised by the volunteers of HOSI Vienna the ball raises significant funds which are used to finance lesbian and gay projects.

Promenade, box and table tickets

As of 6 October 2014, all the categories of the tickets to the Rainbow Ball can be purchased on the online Ticketshop.  Yet promenade tickets are also available in the following outlets: Gugg, Löwenherz Bookstore, Café Willendorf and Stanek Dancing School.
