If the visitor has purchased the ticket via an advance booking platform, in the event of a total cancellation of the event, the reversal of the transaction shall in principle also only take place via this advance booking platform and the visitor shall be referred exclusively to the advance booking platform for the assertion of his refund claims.


c.) It is also possible for the organizer to cancel the event on individual days only or to cancel the event that has already begun in the event of massive weather-related circumstances.

8. compensation for damages:

Claims for damages of any kind of the visitor against the organizer are excluded, as far as the organizer, his legal representatives or also his vicarious agents have not acted intentionally or grossly negligent and no essential contractual obligations have been violated. A liability of the organizer for the services rendered by the service providers as well as in case of self-infliction by the visitor is excluded in any case.


b.) Likewise, liability of the organizer is excluded if it was not possible for him to avoid the damage due to the circumstances.

In place of the invalid provisions, another appropriate provision shall apply - insofar as this is legally permissible - which comes as close as possible in economic terms to what the contracting parties intended or would have intended if they had considered the invalidity of the provision, taking into account the principles of good faith and custom.
