If you plan to come to the ball directly by car please be careful not to park around the Statue of Erzherzog-Karl and the green areas when there is snow on the ground. Please also note that during the ball season an increased number of police checks are carried out! We therefore strongly recommend you to use public transportation or cabs to ensure that you can have a perfect ball experience!
