A vegetarian alternative menu can be provided upon advance notice. Admission and seating at the ball is not included. The general terms and conditions of Rudolfina-Redoute apply. A minimum participation of 30 persons is required for the dinner. Should we receive less than 30 reservations and therefore have to cancel the diner, we will inform you at least 3 weeks prior to the ball and refund the full ticket price.
