Note:

The ballrooms are pretty straightforward to find - just walk up the stairs to the first floor and turn left. Entry to the ballrooms will be through Sektion B and C, which will form a continuous foyer. The coffee breaks will be in the large Ballsaal Foyer, and the way to the lunch break is through the doors at the top of that foyer. Please see the sketch for your reference.
