The idea to organise a Viennese ball for the three Baltic communities in Austria was born in the spring of 2016, when Ambassadors and community leaders of our countries were looking for ways to strengthen the communication between our diasporas as well as for possibilities to present the Baltic cultures in the Austrian environment.
The third Baltic Ball is being organised with a hope that the event will be welcomed and numerously attended by our communities. The Organisational Committee believes that the Ball has a potential to develop into a yearly tradition, that will gather together Lithuanians, Latvians and Estonians from Austria and abroad, who enjoy Viennese celebrations, as well as it will interest other admirers of the Baltic countries.
With enthusiasm and festive mood of each guest of the Ball, we can make this dream to come true!


The third Baltic Ball will take place in the historic building of Vienna Technical University, Kuppelsaal, located in the heart of Vienna, next to the famous Karlsplatz and the St. Charles Church.

Address: Karlsplatz 13, 1040 Vienna

Following the tradition of a Viennese ball, the guests of the Baltic Ball will be given an opportunity to donate for charity organisations back in Lithuanina, Latvia and Estonia.
This year the collected donations will be dedicated for the SOS Children’s Villages (SOS Kinderdorf) in three Baltic countries. These Villages offer an alternative to foster families, provide professional, family-based care and support for children deprived by parents and  orphans, help them growing up into independent members of society. SOS Children’s day-care centres also work with families experiencing social difficulties and families at risk and offer their children a secure and safe environment. Their activities rely upon donations only.
Interesting, that the idea of SOS Children’s Villages originates from Austria, where the first Village was opened in the town of Imst. In the post World War II years, 1949, an Austrian doctor, Hermann Gmeiner, started to look for a solution for helping war orphans and homeless kids and giving them a possibility to grow up in an environment which would resemble a regular home as closely as possible.

Today, the work of the organisation in the world is led and co-ordinated by SOS Kinderdorf International in Austria, which joins more than 133 national SOS Children’s Village’s associations. With their help, more than 80,000 children have found a new home around the globe.

You will have a chance to donate when buying your ball ticket online as well as during the event. All proceeds will be equally divided to the three Baltic countries. Thank you for your generosity!
