Parking/ Parking lotsin line with the 15th anniversary we can finally offer you an additional, convenient parking space solution: the RTL garage directly opposite of the festival area.
Therefor we were able to agree with the owner on a special fee of 6,00 Euro per entry.
Those of you who still prefer to park for free can still use the parking spaces to the sides of the exhibition halls (or, after these areas have been filled, the parking lot beneath the "Zoobrücke"). The former trade-fair parking lot we used in previous years is not available anymore due to construction measures by the fair society "KölnMesse".
So you can choose:
VARIETY 1 - FREE PARKING SPACES - KÖLNMESSE
VARIETY 2 - CHARGED PARKING SPACES - RTL GARAGE
The parking fee (6,00 Euro per entry) will be paid (cash) on site to the steward at the entrygate of the garage itself. The parking allowance expires by leaving the garage.
Watch out - maximum entry height: 2,00 m (= regular cars only)
Please follow the instructions of the parking stewards and the parking information system at all times and do not try to create parking space on your own. The stewards will guide you the way!
GENERAL PARKING INFO
(Please avoid the approach via Charles-de-Gaulle-Platz, our stewards are instructed to let you turn around here!)
Point of choice:
At the roundabout Auenweg/Rheinparkweg you can choose whether you would like to park for free or go to the charged garage, as long as both contingents are available!
Friday: 16:00 - 01:00 o'clock
Saturday: 08:00 - 23:00 o'clock
Sunday: 08:00 - 23:00 o'clock
In both areas, exhibition halls and garage, we will reserve a contingent of parking spaces for handicapped people to keep distances as short as possible. Please ask the parking stewards for them at arrival (please keep your handicap ID at hand if required).
Large parts of the Auenweg and the Kennedyufer are declared as no parking areas. We strongly require those spaces for the production and a smooth festival progression. Illegally parked vehicles in these areas will be removed at the owners expense.
Please check our page for camping van and RV parking.
Admission rules | Bags and backpacksTo secure a swift admission process we highly recommend all Amphi visitors to bring no bags or backpacks with them to the festivalground. If possible, please leave those items at home, your hotel room or your car at the parking space. (This also goes for "Call the Ship to Port".)
However, we are not going to introduce a total ban of bags and backpacks at the festivalground!
In case you can´t forgo your bag or backpack (like for photo equipment), expect more indepth checks and perhaps longer waits at the entrance.
In order to still keep admission as quick as possible, we invented the so-called "Luggage Lane" at the Tanzbrunnen's main entrance for visitors with bags. Please follow the local signage or the instructions of the security, who, on occasion, may ask you to take the "Luggage Lane" instead of the normal entrance.
As a simple rule for Amphi Festival goes:
Youth protectionThe German Civil Law Code (BGB) puts parents under the obligation to care for the well-being of their under-aged children (under 18 years of age). For children, under 16 years in particular, a music festival could cause immense physical and mental stress, so we cannot speak out a general recommendation for children to attend. Personal care regulations – under consideration of the German Youth Protection Law – leave the final decision to the parents, whether to allow their children to participate in public music events (including the journey to and the presence at the venue).
Unfortunately we noticed an increased number of even smallest children and babys in carriages being taken to the festival. Many parents already protect their children with noise protection or by keeping them in the back area of the venue but not all of them. Therfore we needed to adjust our admittance rules. Since 2014, the minimum age for children is set to 6 years or older. In the interest of your children we ask all parents who are affected by this measure for their understanding.
Children under 16 years of age may only attend public music events while they are accompanied either by their parents or an adult person, authorized by the parents in written form, to supervise their personal well-being at all times.
Children under 16 years of age may only attend public music events in company either of their parents or an adult person, authorized by the parents in written form, to supervise their personal well-being at all times.
Adolescents above 16 and under 18 years of age are allowed to attend music events on their own. However, they must leave the venue until 12pm at latest. Staying at the venue after 12pm again requires company by their parents or another adult person, authorized by the parents in written form, to supervise their personal well-being at all times.
The form for transferring the supervising authority can be found here, it has to be filled out completely and has to be signed by the parents themselves! The person, allowed to accompany and watch over the child, needs to have the form available at all times during the event and can be asked to prove her/his identity with a valid id-card! Adolescents above 16 years are also asked to keep their id-card/passport ready for an age check. Alongside these rules, regulating the attendance of the event, public restrictions concerning alcohol and tobacco-products need to be followed at any time. In case of a scrutiny we reserve the right to immediately remove smoking or drunken juveniles under 18 years of age from the venue.
Admission of children from 6 to 12 years of age
At our festival kids from the age of 6 years up to 12 years will be admitted for free. Of course they have to be accompanied by their at least one of their parents or a legal guardian.
Disabled persons / Wheelchair usersDisabled persons who need a personal assistant due to their (proven) kind of condition only need one admission ticket for themselves - not for the personal assistant. Wheelchair users can use the large wheelchair accessible ranks on the left side of the stage.
Toilets for disabled persons are available!
Cash terminalAn EC-cash terminal of „Sparkasse Köln-Bonn“ is located at the RTL mediahouse across the road. Walking from Tanzbrunnen, the terminal is in the hallway, halfway through the building on the left side.
SecurityIn the case of security relevant problems or violence please contact the security personnel. Please always follow the instructions of the security guards!
Free drinking waterComplementary to the event-gastronomy we will provide free drinking water fountains for our festival guests.
LiabilitiesEvery festival guest is liable for damage caused by him, be it in the festival area or the parking lots!
Medical assistanceIn the case of an emergency there are paramedics at hand. Please inform yourselves of their whereabouts by reading the area map or the festival programme!
AnimalsAnimals of any kind are not allowed to be brought into the event area!
Fake ticketsDo not buy ticket from pedlars or other people on the street. Those tickets might be fake. People with faked tickets will not gain access to the festival!
Information boothAs usual we will provide an information booth for you at the venue. It will be run by our partner www.dunkel-volk.de. Here you will find for example: general festival information, the festival programme, the lost and found office, information on ATM machines, pharmacies, time tables for public transport, hotel reservations, city maps!
WC:Our festival venue provides sufficient permanent regular restroom facilities including wash-basins, mirrors, etc.
GastronomyThe entire catering for the Tanzbrunnen is run by the in-house catering service - the company Rhein Connection GmbH - not by us the promoter. The Rhein Connection GmbH does not allow to bring own food and drinks of any kind to the venue. All our attempts to allow at least tetrapacks were unsuccessful! Of course our festival guests (with day tickets, too) are allowed to leave the venue inbetween to eat or drink their own food outside. Therefor all visitors will recieva a wristband at the entrance. Rhein Connection GmbH uses a deposit system for cups and bottles!
Aboard the MS RheinEnergie the gastronomical offer is being provided by Köln-Düsseldorfer Rheinschifffahrt AG. It is not allowed to bring your own food or drinks here either.
The gastronomy of both venues is not linked. Therefore we ask you to consume food and drinks at the place where you bought them.
Basically has been agreed: Please do not throw bottles/cups on the walkway betwen the venues. The other guests will be thankful for it.
