The Blue Danube Waltz is the common English name of "An der Schönen Blauen Donau, Op. 314", which is German for "By the Beautiful Blue Danube", written by Austrian composer Johann Strauss II.

The Blue Danube was first performed in February, 1867 at a concert of the Wiener Männergesangsverein (Vienna Men's Choral Association), and it has been one of the most consistently popular pieces of classical music since.
