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 festival as a family and bring your children. Babies and children under 6 years of age are admitted free of charge, but you cannot take them with you into the venues during the musical performance. A child pays nothing and, accordingly, is not included in the list of paying persons. So, despite the fact that a child is travelling with them, the four adults pay the price for travel with adults.
From what age do children and adolescents need a ticket?
Children from the age of 6 need their own ticket to attend the festival. Children under 6 years can be taken to the holiday park free of charge. It is not permitted to take children under the age of 6 with you into the venues during musical performances. Moreover, due to parental rights - and pursuant to youth protection laws - parents decide on whether minors may attend the festival. According to the German Civil Code (BGB), parents have the obligation and the right to take care of the underage child (under 18). In addition, restrictions apply to the issuing and consumption of alcoholic drinks and to the issuing of tobacco products and smoking. Any youths caught drinking or smoking during checks under youth protection laws can be sent home. We do not request personal data from children and adolescents, do not collect such data and do not pass it on to third parties.
Do I have access to the Aqua Park or Jungle Land with my day pass?
Access to the Aqua Park is included in the price for weekend guests, day guests have to pay the respective entrance fee for the Aqua Park. For a small surcharge of €6 per day and person, festival guests with a festival pass can also visit Jungle Land. The day pass does not entitle you to a discount on the admission fee for Jungle Land.
