FAQ Registration

Registration for the Katholikentag is possible via katholikentag.de/participate. There you will also find all information about participating in Katholikentag. 

You need a "My Katholikentag" account to register or buy tickets on our website. If you have already participated in a Katholikentag in previous years and registered via "My Katholikentag", you can log in with the user data used for that purpose. Please note that accounts with "My ÖKT" are not valid for "My Katholikentag". 

For the first time at Katholikentag, you have the option of receiving your ticket in digital form. This will reduce the amount of mailing and the risk of loss. To use the eTicket, you need a smartphone and the Katholikentag app, which will be available for download from March 2022. 

If all members of a family or group want to have the eTicket on their own mobile phone, they all need their own "My Katholikentag" account with different e-mail addresses and the Katholikentag app. If one person has all eTickets collected on one mobile phone, these people would always have to attend all events together. So if you don't have a smartphone but want to attend an event independently, it's better to choose a paper ticket.
