Pursuant to Section 312g (2) Sentence 1 No. 9 of the German Civil Code (BGB), there is no right of revocation for the purchase of tickets despite the fundamental existence of a distance selling transaction. This means that the two-week right of revocation and return is completely excluded when purchasing tickets.

If no more tickets are available online for a time slot, it is sold out and no more tickets are available at the box office either. We recommend to buy the tickets cheaper in advance in our ticket store.

We use a demand-based pricing system. This means that our ticket prices are based on how early and for which date you book a ticket.

Information on payment methods can be found on the website of our ticket provider myticket.de. At the box office you can pay with cash as well as with EC card or credit card.

Vouchers can be issued with an individual voucher value (from 1.00 €) and provided with a personal dedication.
Vouchers can be redeemed directly at the Christmas Garden box office, but only on condition that tickets are still available for the desired day and time slot.
