Box office
The box office opens 1.5 hours before the performance. If there are still tickets available for the respective performance, you will have the opportunity to purchase tickets on site. This year we are required to personalise all tickets for the Ruhrfestspiele. Therefore, it is necessary to collect your contact details (first and last name as well as full address, email address or telephone number) when purchasing tickets. If you are purchasing tickets for additional persons, you are required to provide their personal details at the time of purchase as well. On the evening of the event, all visitors are required to carry their ID with them and to present it upon request at the entrance and when purchasing tickets at the box office. In order to simplify the process at the box office, you are welcome to bring the completed form below to the box office.

In the ticket office and at the box offices you can pay for 2022 in cash or with EC or credit card. Please note that payments by EC or credit card are not possible in all venues.
