  Big balls in Vienna
by phil_uk_net

Fondest memory: The Vienna social season revolves around various balls. I attended my first (and only) one on 28 February 2003 - the Flüchtlings Ball. This was held at the Vienna Rathaus, a huge building, and was quite informal. The thousands of people attending were dressed in everything from jeans to ball gowns.

Opernball, probably the most famous of the balls attended by Vienna's high society, had been held the previous day. There was lots on TV and in the papers about the presence of ex-Baywatch star Pamela Anderson. She had been invited as the guest of Dickie Lugner, an Austrian playboy who made his fortune through construction.
