    Entry is free for children under 8 years old as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

    A visitor registration (noting the number of children and their names) is required when purchasing the Bring-your-kids ticket. The ticket is valid only on Sunday and grants entry to one adult with up to six children under 18.

    Please note that there may be areas with games that are not meant for younger audiences. The adult ticket holder has to make sure that those areas are only visited by those who have reached the required age.

    The Hamburg convention center is located in the center of the city, conveniently reachable via public transport. Here can be found here.

    The day ticket costs € 34, the 3 day ticket costs € 65. The "Bring your kids" ticket is only valid on Sunday (15.10.) and allows entry for one adult and up to six children under 18 (€ 55).

    Bitte beachtet, dass wir die Gültigkeit von Tickets, die nicht in unserem offiziellen Shop gekauft wurden, nicht garantieren können.
