Purchase of tickets

Entrance tickets are only available at the cash-desks in the visitors' centre near the landing stage; we offer some tickets online via our ticket shop. So even if there are no more tickets available online, you can usually still buy tickets at the cash desk.

Visitors with an online ticket can go directly to the entrance and do not have to join the cash desk queue.
Please note: In the case of reduced-price tickets and free tickets, original proof of eligibility must be presented on site. Subsequent reductions cannot be granted.
Tickets cannot be returned or exchanged.
