  • Can one buy or reserve tickets directly in the BODENSEEFORUM KONSTANZ?

    Because we rent our rooms to different event organizers, we are not directly involved in selling tickets. The Tourist Information located in the Constance train station is the best place to start as they are responsible for the majority of events. Alternatively visit There you will also find other places involved in the selling of event tickets. 

  • Are there discounted tickets for school children, students, pensioners…?

    Ticket sales, seating and corresponding prices are determined by the individual event organizer and differ from event to event. For further information we suggest you get in contact with the organizer directly or visit Please enter here the date and name of the event you are interested in and search for „discounted tickets“.

  • Are there ticket sales on the door for shows, concerts, musicals and parties?

    This can differ from event to event: We give each event organizer the opportunity to sell tickets on the door. In our experience ticket sales on the door are opened usually one hour in advance of the event when there are still places. But this is in the hands of the event organizer. 

  • I have lost my ticket / bought one too many / can I get my money back for the ticket if I am ill or have to change my plans?

    Please get in touch directly with the event organizer. You will find their contact details on your ticket.

  • When does the event start? (Evening events such as shows, concerts and musicals)

    Usually the BODENSEEFORUM KONSTANZ opens its doors to the foyer one hour before the beginning of the event. 30 minutes before the event starts the doors open to the Hall. These times can vary according to different events. You can find all the information on your ticket. Events with free seating may have different timings.

  • Are there are enough toilets?

    Yes. The BODENSEEFORUM KONSTANZ has plenty of toilets available including disabled toilets and nappy changing facilities.

    The BODENSEEFORUM KONSTANZ has no public restaurants. For guests to events the public bar in the foyer is open one hour before the event and offers a range of drinks.

  • I lost something at an event.

    Please get in touch via email at In order to find your lost property as quickly as possible please include a full description and a photo if possible, as well as to which event and where it was lost together with your contact details.

  • Am I allowed to bring my dog to an event?

    The bringing of animals, in particular dogs, is not permitted, with the exception of guide dogs for the blind or disabled.

  • Do I have to check in my jacket or bag?

    Jackets and large bags or rucksacks must be checked in for security purposes.  As a rough guide anything that is larger than an A4 piece of paper must be checked in. These rules are in accordance with the local authority rules governing the safety of public gatherings with which we are obliged to comply and are for your own safety and for that of the other guests.
    Moreover, it is also a required measure to ensure that in case of fire the evacuation of the building can be carried out as swiftly as possible.
    That means for you that you have to forgo certain habits, i.e. Please leave your jackets and bags in the cloakroom and no drinks in the hall during the events. In case of fire jackets left hanging on the back of chairs can create a hindrance for others leaving the room, the same is true of large bags that can get in the way when the room has to be evacuated quickly.  Also bottles that fall over in the event rooms are not only an annoying distraction for the artistes and guests but can also become potential obstacles for people to trip over and cause injury.

  • May I take my drinks into the event?

    No, as glasses and bottle can present a security risk. Our bars are open before the event and during the breaks for you to enjoy a drink. Thank you in advance for your co-operation.
