Moonlight Reception Only

The Moonlight Reception starts at 9:00PM, after the Weihnachtsgala main event, when guests move from the dining room to the reception suites for desserts, prosecco and music. Same great crowd and fantastic ambiance as the Gala, this "mini-ticket" does NOT include the Cocktail Reception or Dinner--a nice alternative if you want to experience the gala later in the evening, but can't attend the full event.
