An example that Strauss not only stands for successful waltzes is his Annen Polka, which rang out for the first time at one of the popular "Anne festivals" in the Viennese Prater. Soon this piece began its triumphant advance around the whole world. The premiere took place on 24 July 1852.

The Annenpolka later became a drinking song (Schwipslied) as an insert for the opera A Night in Venedig. In the eleventh scene of the operetta's second act, the Duke and Annina are together on stage. The latter realizes that the alcohol has gone to her head. With the spoken words "I shouldn't have drunk so much. But I'll risk one very last glass. Who knows when I'll next be guest of a Duke," she segues into the Schwipslied: "Suddenly I feel so strange / something's prickling and tickling in my blood...I might even be a bit tipsy - but I'm not tipsy, oh no".

The "Annen Polka" is a polka by Johann Strauss son (op. 117). The work was first performed on July 24, 1852 in the garden of the pub Zum Wilden Mann in the Vienna Prater. The polka was premiered on the occasion of the annual Annenfest in the Vienna Prater. It was dedicated to all women with the names Anna, Nina or Nanette. This polka became one of the composer's greatest successes with his polkas. Even today the work is still one of the most frequently played Strauss pieces ever. Even his contemporaries were enthusiastic. It is ironic that this delicate polka was premiered in the garden of the restaurant Zum Wilden Mann, of all places. Sometimes a dedication of the work to the former Empress Maria Anna (1803-1884) is mentioned. But there is no evidence of this.
