Purchase of Individual Tickets

According to § 312b para. 3 no. 6 BGB (German Civil Code), the provisions on distance contracts do not apply to contracts for services in the field of leisure activities. The ticket purchaser is therefore not entitled to a two-week right of cancellation.

Discounts on Single Tickets

Trainees and students over 18 years of age will receive tickets for all events outside the youth programme at a price of 5 € until they reach the age of 26.

Holders of reduced-price tickets are obliged to show their ID at the entrance without being asked.


Cloakroom (Erholungshaus)

Coats, umbrellas, large bags and similar bulky items may not be taken into the auditorium and must be left at the cloakroom. The cloakroom service is included in the ticket price. The visitor will receive a cloakroom ticket for this service. Valuables will not be kept in the cloakroom. Upon presentation of the cloakroom ticket, the staff is entitled to hand over the cloakroom items to the owner of the ticket without checking the entitlement. Bayer is only liable for loss of or damage to stored cloakroom items to the extent that the cloakroom personnel have violated their storage obligations intentionally or through gross negligence. Claims for loss of or damage to stored items are limited to an amount of € 1,500.00. Claims for compensation due to the loss of the contents of coats or bags etc. are limited to the amount of € 100.00 at the most. Damage to or loss of the cloakroom must be reported to the cloakroom personnel immediately and claims must be made in writing within 14 days of the performance. Later notifications are not possible.


Cloakroom in Other Venues

In certain circumstances, the price of cloakroom service at other venues is not included in the ticket price.



Admission to an event is only possible with a valid ticket. The presentation of an order confirmation or an invoice is not sufficient for this purpose.
