The New Year’s Concert in Vienna is a longstanding and very popular tradition on New Year’s Day, which is broadcast on TV not only in Austria and the German-speaking countries of Europe but also in more than 70 other countries around the world. Since 1939 the concert is held in the Gro├čer Saal (Large Hall) in the Wiener Musikverein, situated in the city centre of Vienna.

The classical music performed always include works written by the famous Strauss family.
