Täuberln-Walzer (Little Doves Waltz), opus 1, is a waltz composed by Johann Strauss I. The work is very simple in form, containing seven melodies without an introduction or coda.[1] It debuted during the carnival of 1826, when Strauss introduced his band to the public of Vienna at the Schwan, in the Roßau suburb of Vienna.[2]

Although it is Strauss' first numbered composition, it was not his first work: he had written several other dances under the name of his friend Josef Lanner when the latter was unable to compose due to an illness.
