Come and enjoy the event of the year!
The great New Year’s Eve Swing Ball, in Cologne’s Chocolate Museum, combines laid-back groove with the sheer exuberance and vitality of irresistible rhythms, embodied in sounds from Lindy Hop over Blues up to Rockabilly. And at midnight, the venue offers an unexcelled view of the spectacular firework displays on the Rhine bridges - with a view of the Cathedral thrown in for good measure.

The Swing Ball starts at 9 p.m. with a trial lesson / taster session with instructors from the “Hop Spot” Dance Studio. Already at half past 9 two bands are playing dance music in turns.
Until dawn DJ Wuthe and the Swing & Soul DJ-Team will delight with dance music of the swing era. DJ Wuthe from Berlin performs, his worldwide unique DJ set, through solely authentic sounds of Shellac.

Following the major success of the previous years, this is now the 6th edition of the New Year’s Eve Swing Ball. Ample room for some snappy swing dancing and also excellent catering are absolute certainties. For the hungry we covered the snacks at fair pricing (you can find for e.g. vegetarian soup; curry wurst & pretzels). The champagne to clink classes at midnight is, of course, free of charges.

So come and experience the dance music of the crazy 20ties and 40ties, and prepare to be enchanted.
