Withdrawal and exchange of tickets

Tickets can not be returned or exchanged. This also applies in cases of changes in the cast and the program. If a booking can only be processed in parts, returning the tickets is not possible either. A replacement ticket can be issued at the box office in case an original ticket is lost and you can prove which ticket you had purchased. An owner of an original ticket is granted higher priority than an owner of a replacement ticket. Unused concert tickets cannot be exchanged.

In case an event is cancelled, ticket prices can be returned within four weeks of the cancellation upon presentation of the original ticket and from the point of sale where the ticket was purchased originally only or by sending in the original ticket with relevant bank details. Any further claims such as returning service charges, travel or accommodation costs are excluded. Weather related interruptions of open air performances do not entitle ticket holders to a return of ticket prices.
