If I don’t like the sound of the menus as they are written?
All weddings are unique and we are happy to work with you and tailor the menu to your liking. You may also participate in the planning and decoration of the wedding cake if you can’t find your favorite on our list. Some of the guests are travelling to Helsinki for the wedding, can they find accommodation in Klaus K? Case by case based on availability and season, we will offer you the best available rate for your guests. Closer to the event we will release the rooms that are not reserved by your guests back to sales and they do not need to be guaranteed by the wedding couple.
