There is no shortage of classical music festivals and opera balls in Vienna, fitting given the city was the birthplace of Schubert and home to both Beethoven and Mozart.

Don’t miss the special main act at midnight, and ensure you stick to the strict dress code of tuxedos and ballgowns, so anyone wearing jeans is likely to be turned away.
