Musikverein - Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde Wien

The Musikverein is the impressive venue of the Ball of Industry and Technology. Planned by the architect Theophil Hansen (1813-1891) in the course of the building of the Ringstrasse, it includes impressive elements of Philohellenism, which had left a lasting impact on Hansen due to a lengthy course of study in Athens.  

Hansen created a classical atmosphere for classical works: the caryatids, which greatly distinguish the Goldener Saal are just as impressive as the ionic columns in the Brahmssaal or the antique polychromy, which was also used.

There could be no more appropriate ambiance for the Ball of Industry and Technology.
