Where the extensive green of the 65,000 m² large city park verges on the historical Ringstraße one of Vienna’s most enchanting buildings was constructed in Italian Renaissance style: the Kursalon.

As the name of the palace might still suggest, the Kursalon was originally intended as a spa resort – but with first dance events and promenade concerts the magnificent building quickly grew into a vibrant hotspot in the heart of Vienna.

Till this day the waltz enchantment and zest for life are celebrated at the Kursalon – thanks to no other than ‘The Waltz King’ Johann Strauss Sohn himself who celebrated his first great successes as concertmaster in our halls.



Johann Strauss - the Waltz King
Johann Strauss (Son) was born on 25 October 1825 in Vienna.
With his compostions in light classical style, he put everything comparable
in the shade. In the year 1844 he made his sensationally successful debut in Dommayers Casino in Hietzing with his own small orchestra.
An unprecedented triumphal progress began that led him, together
with his brothers Joseph and Eduard, to the Kursalon Wien, among other locations.
Wide-ranging concert tours throughout Europe, and the 1927 American concert series, triggered off a real “Strauss hysteria“.
His popularity was unsurpassed.

Besides waltzes, Strauss also applied himself to the composition of other dance forms, such as polkas, galops, marches and csárdás.
Through his contact with Jacques Offenbach he discovered operetta,
which he himself called “comic opera”. With works like “Die Fledermaus“ and
“The Gypsy Baron” he brought the golden era of Viennese operetta
to its pinnacle.
Johann Strauss Jnr died on 3 June 1899 in Vienna.


Viennese waltzes
The origins of the waltz reach back to the Middle Ages. Although initially considered coarse and too folksy,
from the Congress of Vienna (1814/15) onwards it spread around the world and captivated all levels of society.
From 1800, Vienna became the centre for the waltz.
In the course of the 19th Century, the waltz developed into a concert form in its own right, fashioned by the
Grand Masters of the waltz: Josef Lanner, Johann Strauss Senior and his sons Joseph and Eduard.
But when one speaks of the
“Viennese Waltz”, then without a doubt the waltz compositions of Johann Strauss Jnr spring to mind, representing as they do a pinnacle in the development of the form.


The classical concert waltz begins with an introduction, which is followed by a series usually of five waltz melodies, and ends with the coda, which brings a reprise of the preceding melodies.
The ¾ time of the waltz gains its characteristic Viennese swing through the slight, intuitive anticipation of the second beat.
Undoubtedly the most famous of the Viennese waltzes is Johann Strauss Jnr’s “The Blue Danube”, opus 314,
which has practically become
Austria’s secret national anthem.
