Der Kongress tanzt takes place during the Congress of Vienna, which took place in 1814/1815 after the Napoleonic Wars.  It was a meeting between the powers that be to set the frontiers of the world. Russia's Tsar Alexander is traveling incognito among the people in the tradition of his ancestor Peter the Great, coming across a witty and charming Viennese glove seller, the young Christel Weinzinger.  She announces her business by throwing a flowers with a visiting card into each carriage that drives past.  As the story unfolds, Christel is accused of an assassination attempt and finally condemned.  The punishment is however waived and Christel is again free.  The Tsar, having fallen in love with Christel, uses the visiting card, in order to visit her in her business.  A romance develops, with Prince Metternich and his army of spies intending to use the situation to further his own agenda.  This however clashes with Pepi, his secretary, who is also in love with Christel. Christel tells her friends about the romance, which is naturally not believed.  Only as the Tsar arrives with a splendid carriage to fetch her, does astonishment set in.

Einer der größten Publikumserfolge des frühen deutschen Tonfilms mit dem "Traumpaar" Lilian Harvey und Willy Fritsch: Während des Wiener Kongresses, auf dem die europäischen Regenten 1814 die Neuordnung des Kontinent aushandeln, erlebt die Handschuhmacherin Christel ihr ganz privates Abenteuer. Zunächst wird sie als vermeintliche Attentäterin verhaftet, dann verdreht sie dem russischen Zaren Alexander gehörig den Kopf. Doch als die Nachricht von Napoleons Landung in Frankreich eintrifft, müssen die Herrscher wieder ans Herrschen denken. Der Kongress ist vorbei, und Christel bleibt ohne ihren Alexander in Wien zurück.
