Austria – Vienna town

The Viennese ball has a long tradition and is an integral element of the cultural life of the city of Vienna. To promote Vienna at the international level, the city has participated annually for more than 40 years in 40 Viennese balls around the world. These social events make Vienna known in the world as a city of Music. Viennese balls contribute in forging new networks and deepen existing cultural and economic contacts as well as promote friendly relations between cities.
We are pleased that the city of Vienna supports the introduction Viennese Balls in Geneva society.


Founded in 1888, the family company Bucherer has one of the most distinguished traditions in Europe’s watch and jewellery industry, and over the last 130 years has established for itself an exclusive reputation with its range of exquisite jewellery and prize-winning creations. Its boutiques also offer the company’s international clientele a wide range of luxury watches from renowned brands. Bucherer is present at 34 exclusive locations in Europe: with 17 stores in Switzerland, 10 in Germany, a flagship store in Vienna, the world’s largest watch and jewellery store in Paris, a store in Copenhagen, Denmark, and six boutiques in London. In January 2018, Bucherer also took over the US luxury watch retailer Tourneau, which has 28 stores across the US. And in summer 2018, the watch family took over another establishment – Baron & Leeds – with its four luxury watch and jewellery stores in Hawaii. The company employs over 2,400 staff and is currently managed by Jörg G. Bucherer, meaning it has now been under the stewardship of the Bucherer family for three generations. The Bucherer headquarters remain in Lucerne to this day.

Caper Club

As the oldest, if not only, international social dance club in the Lake Geneva area, the Caper Club is very pleased to support the Bal Viennois de Genève.

The Caper Club gets together four times to dine in elegant surroundings and dance to the music of great live bands. The atmosphere is similar to the Bal Viennois, and dress is also formal (tuxedo for men, evening or cocktail dress for ladies).

Everyone is welcome, from ball-room champions to two-step shufflers; all you need is enthusiasm. Our program typically includes a wide range of dances – from the timeless classics like the Tango, Waltz, and Fox Trot or the Latin rhythms of the Cha Cha, Rhumba, and Samba, to nightclub favorites like the Salsa, Disco Fox, and Bachata.

Hôtel Beau-Rivage

When we speak of the Vienna ball, we easily think of the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, known as «Sissi». She was the most celebrated guest of Beau-Rivage Geneva, a family business for five generations, with charm and elegance on the shores of Lake Geneva.

It was in this sumptuous setting that the first casting call for debutants took place for the opening of the Vienna Ball in Geneva. These beautiful young people, waltzing on Viennese air, have already made the dream come alive….
