The Gala Dinner will take place on 17th April 2018 in the Vienna City Hall.
The City Hall is one of the most splendid of the numerous monumental buildings in Vienna. Designed by Friedrich Schmidt (1825-1891), it was constructed between 1872 and 1883. The architecture along the street where it stands, the Ringstraße, is all historic. The City Hall itself was built in a gothic style with a tower similar to gothic cathedrals. The gothic era saw the growth of cities and emergence of an urban bourgeoisie. Today the City Hall is the head office of Vienna’s municipal administration. More than 2,000 people work in the building. Visitors are stunned by the magnificently decorated state rooms, which frequently provide an atmospheric backdrop to various events such as press conferences, concerts or balls.
