Inside the Gate - Getting Tickets
Several thousand guests enter through the main gate
during a picnic, and the waiting line varies.  The line
moves fast and the wait seldom exceeds 20 minutes.
  • Portable toliet facilities are located outside the gate.
  • Benches are available for those who need assistance.
  • Need help?  Ask a German Park volunteer at the gate.
To minimize the wait, please review our guidelines and requirements below.
