Press release March 18, 2022

The second Geneva Viennese Ball will take place at “The Ritz Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva” on Friday, May 6, 2022.

Dance with the stars

Geneva has the privilege of hosting its second Viennese Ball after New York, Paris and Brussels. On Friday, May 6, at the Ritz Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva, all the culinary, protocol and artistic traditions will be part of a magical event.

After the opening ceremony, the guests dance and stroll from table to table sharing a drink and some petits fours. Some take the opportunity to talk business and others twirl to the sound of the waltz.

This is the magic of the ball!

 “The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva” is honored to welcome us once again in its majestic salons. Tickets already purchased for the Ariana Museum are valid for “The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva”.

Due to recent and important damages at the Ariana Museum, this venue is unavailable for our ball. For this reason, the Ball is maintained but has to be moved to “The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva”. This change is beyond our control.

The number of participants will be reduced due to the space available, so do not delay in purchasing sympathizer membership cards giving you access to the ball.
In 2023, if the situation allows it, our association hopes to hold its third Geneva Viennese Ball at the Ariana Museum.

Diplomats, society actors, exchange lovers: the ball unites society and generations. People get dressed up to dance, to meet each other, to drink a glass of wine and taste delicacies, to talk about everything and anything and why not about world affairs, all to music. In the Viennese tradition, a ball is the place for multilateral exchanges. This is the experience we invite you to live in 2022. More than ever, our world needs third places to embody new forms of encounters and to celebrate the common good in peace.

Do you dream of attending a Viennese Ball?
Admission to the Viennese Ball in Geneva costs a symbolic CHF 200 per person. (Includes: entrance to the Ball, champagne, dinner and beginners’ show).
It is possible to reserve private tables for your guests in order to spend an exclusive evening with your partners / friends.
