Our first visit to Vienna - we'll be staying at Palais Schwarzenberg and attending the New Years Eve ball. Also have tickets for the Vienna Hopsburg Orchestra at the Imperial Palace on New Year's Day and ballet at the State Opera. Looking forward to dressing for the occassions - very formal for the ball? New Year's Day concert? Will a fur coat (my warmest garment) be acceptable? What are the best places for traditional Viennese dining? We prefer this to new, trendy establishments - very old fashioned are we!
