Regional tickets are € 6.— and entitle ticket holders to visit regional museums. Free admission for children aged twelve and under.


The booklets provide information on the programme. They are available for free in all participating cultural institutions as well as at the “Museum Information Point” and can be downloaded on this website (in German only).

A Special Event for Children
