Day tickets Weiße Nächte  Retour Natur

Last year, for the first time, an entrance fee was introduced on the basis of the principle "pay what you can" in order to help finance the diverse, extended offer of this extraordinary event and at the same time to enable broad participation. Admission remains free for people receiving benefits under the basic income support scheme!
From 8.50 €, the price can be determined by the individual. Of course, it is important for the theatre that as many visitors as possible choose the normal price of € 23.50 for a day ticket or even a higher amount out of solidarity. The advance sale has started.


Normal price € 23,50

Reduced € 9,- (pupils, trainees, students up to 35 and severely handicapped persons from 80% with corresponding ID).

Free admission for persons receiving benefits under the basic security scheme.

Fairy tale € 6,50 (adults) / € 3,- (children)

Special prices apply for pupils and students of the University of Duisburg-Essen and the Ruhr West University of Applied Sciences.
