  • Do we need to book an entire apartment for our ticket order or is it possible to order only one or two festival tickets? In that case, would the apartment be assigned to me?

    The apartments are only completely let. It is not intended that each other unknown festival visitors will be accommodated in the same apartment. On our Facebook page, we have set up a “Roommate Search Bank” which supports you if needed, to find like-minded people for creating your own Metal Hammer Paradise flat-sharing community!

  • How much is the booking fee?

    We charge a booking fee of € 25.00 per apartment.

  • Do I have to pay visitors’ tax?

    The Weissenhaeuser Strand charges a visitor’s tax of € 1.00 per person per night.

  • Can I change an effected booking?

    In general, a confirmed booking can be modified. For administrative expenses, we charge a fee of € 10.00 per rebooking.

  • How do I pay for my tickets?

    The payment of the tickets is made on account. The ticket price is due for payment in full within 14 days of receipt of the invoice. In the period of 20 days before the beginning of the festival, the total amount is due immediately after registration.

  • May I cancel my reservation?

    The return of purchased Metal Hammer Paradise tickets, concluded by sending the order confirmation by mail or e-mail, requires our written consent. If this is not the case, the ticket price must be paid even if you do not utilise the full contractual services or even partially. If, after the written consent of the promoter, a cancellation should be made, the following conditions apply:

    For cancellations of the contract up to 30 days before date of commencement, a processing fee for the cancellation of the apartment / hotel room in the amount of € 20.00 as well as 20% of the accommodation fee is due, in addition to the non-refundable, annual ticket share per person. In case of subsequent termination up to 15 days before date of commencement, 60% will be due. From the 14th to the 3rd day before date of commencement, 80% will be due. Afterwards, until the day of commencement, 95% of the apartment stake of the contract amount are payable. In the case of no-show or early departure, the tenant has no claim for

    compensation for not occupied rental days. The tenant is explicitly free to prove that the lessor has not incurred any damage due to the non-arrival or the cancellation or that the damage is less than the applicable cancellation fee or the retained rent.

  • Where can I find the complete terms and conditions?

    You can find the complete terms and conditions here.

  • What happens if a category is fully booked?

    If a booking category is sold out, a waiting list is kept. You will be notified immediately if your order can not be booked successfully.

  • If a category is completely booked, do I automatically get a larger apartment at the same price?

    If it appears that the larger apartments won’t be sold out, it will be decided if they might be offered to the prospective customers on the waiting list at the same terms and conditions as the smaller ones.

  • Why do I have to pay the price for four adults if I have a baby or toddler under 6 years old with me and am therefore actually travelling with five people?

    We would like you to experience the Metal Hammer Paradise as a family and bring your children along. For this reason, babies and young children under the age of 6 have free admission. Please be aware that children under 6 years are not allowed to be taken to the venues during musical performances and concerts. The child does not need to pay anything and thus is not included in the list of paying persons. Thence, despite the fact that a baby or young child is travelling with the four adults, the adults pay only the price for their journey.

  • From what age do children and adolescents need a ticket?

    Children from the age of 6 and older need their own ticket to join the festival. Children under 6 years can be taken free of charge in the holiday resort. Children under the age of 6 are not allowed to be taken to the venues during musical performances and concerts. Apart from this, the participation of children and adolescents in the event is determined by their legal guardians based on the legal guardians’ rights and custody in consideration of the German Act on Protection of Youth. According to the German Civil Code (BGB), the legal guardians have the duty and the right to care for the minor child (under 18 years). Furthermore, the restrictions on the dispensing and consumption of alcoholic beverages as well as the distribution of tobacco products and smoking apply. In case of a lawful inspection of the protection of minors, drunk or smoking children and adolescents can be sent home. We do not request personal data from children and adolescents, do not collect them and do not share them with third parties.

You are welcome to use the event area and other amenities of the holiday resort and will be informed by SMS / telephone when your accommodation is ready for occupancy. The collection of the room key is made via the Fast Lane - additional waiting times are therefore eliminated as far as possible.

  • Where can I purchase hearing protection?

    The volume in the event venues, especially right in front of the PA towers, is higher than you are used to from everyday noise level. Over a long period of time, the volume can be harmful. Therefore, we recommend wearing earplugs (available at the merchandise stand) and breaks for your ears by regularly changing your position. For all children (age 6 to 15), the wearing of audited and certified hearing protection is strongly recommended.
