A Romantic Danube Waltz

A Romantic Danube Waltz into the New Year on the Austrian Imperial Train with Train Chartering

Spend the last hours of the old year and the first of the new on board the Majestic Imperator Luxury Train in Vienna, the capital of Austria.

The Imperial Train travels through and around Vienna by night, allowing you to enjoy the view while being pampered with fine dining at a black tie formal dinner, followed by dancing on board at the New Year's Ball.

At midnight, the Imperial Train will stop on one of the bridges across the Danube, thus allowing an excellent view of the magnificent firework display.

Guests will then be invited to join in a midnight waltz high above the Danube to the most famous Strauss waltz "The Blue Danube".

In the New Year, there will be live music in the piano bar, and ballroom dancing. Guests will be served goulash soup and Sacherwürstel, a traditional sausage. From 0200hrs, the Train will call at various Viennese stations before completing the journey at Wien-Süd at 0400hrs.

The Imperial New Year's Express costs 285 euros (approx. US$335) per person. Included in the price: Ticket, dinner and all drinks (Champagne, fine wines, beer, mineral water & soft drinks).

Train Chartering is the pioneer of a coordinated approach to sourcing, theming and crewing special trains for corporate & private events, film locations & airport or cruise liner transfers. This full service approach is enhanced by ground handling services at stations.
