5-day tickets are valid for the entire period of the Katholikentag, i.e. from 25 to 29 May 2022. They include a travel pass for all days. It is possible to arrange private or communal accommodation.
Discounts are available on 5-day and day tickets and apply to the following with appropriate certificates:

The indication of your date of birth and/or the indication that you have an appropriate identity card, e.g. student card, pension card or severely disabled person's card or proof of receipt of basic income support, is sufficient to grant you a reduction.
The easiest way is to upload the certificate as a file in your registration. Alternatively, you can send us an e-mail. For correct allocation, please give us your registration number, which will be sent to you with the confirmation e-mail.

Grandparents with grandchildren up to and including 25 years of age can also purchase this ticket.

Each family member will receive their own ticket and can move freely around the Katholikentag. It is possible to arrange private or shared accommodation.
Children at Katholikentag
Children up to 5 years of age do not need their own ticket for Katholikentag and also do not need a travel pass. Children up to the age of 11 do not need a ticket for Katholikentag. However, if required, a travel pass from the local public transport company is necessary, which can be ordered online when registering.
Children aged 12 and over need a reduced-price day or 5-day ticket or a family season ticket for Katholikentag. The travel pass is included here.
Day tickets are available for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. They are valid for one day and include the travel pass for that day. The day of validity must be selected when registering. An exchange is possible via the Participation Service. We cannot arrange accommodation for day tickets.
Evening tickets can be used to attend events after 6 pm. They are available for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. They include a travel pass for the day in question.
The day of validity must be selected when registering. Exchanges are possible via the Participation Service.
We cannot arrange accommodation for evening tickets.
All tickets include a travel pass for local public transport in the area of the Katholikentag. This is valid for the entire event period from 25 to 29 May 2022 in the case of 5-day and family 5-day tickets, and for the respective day of validity in the case of day and evening tickets. In order to issue travel passes, the transport authority requires the date of birth for each ticket. For this reason, the date of birth will be requested for each person.
People with disabilities and accompanying persons
If you need additional assistance for your participation in the Katholikentag in Stuttgart, you can indicate in your registration that you would like to receive information about the service offer for accessibility. We will then send you a questionnaire so that we can inform you about all service offers later on. We need further information especially for suitable accommodation.
If your disabled person's ID shows that you have a B, you can order a free ticket for your companion. If you indicate that you would like to receive information about accessibility services, the accompanying person can be indicated.
The programme booklet provides an overview of the topics of the Katholikentag. Unlike previous events, you will not find detailed information on all events. It offers an overview of the topics and events of the Katholikentag. The complete programme can be found on our homepage or in the Katholikentag app. It will be published in March 2022.
A programme booklet can be ordered with each ticket. When registering, you can choose whether you want to pick up the programme booklet with a voucher during the Katholikentag on site in Stuttgart or whether you want it to be sent to you in advance. In the latter case we will charge a flat rate of 3 Euro for shipping cost within the EU. Please note that any mailing will not begin until April 2022 – regardless of when you register – and we will not ship outside the EU.
Every ticket for the Katholikentag comes with a voucher for a free lanyard, which can be redeemed in the shop on site at the Katholikentag. If you don't want to wait until then, you can buy the lanyard at a reduced price in the shop beforehand. The discount code will be sent to you after submitting your registration.
Early bird discount
If you register by 31 March 2022, you can save 10 Euro on the purchase of 5-day tickets. Family 5-day tickets save 20 Euro. There is no discount on day and evening tickets.
For the first time, digital tickets will be available for the Katholikentag. This reduces the amount of postage you have to pay and reduces the risk of loss. When registering, you can choose whether a paper ticket or an eTicket is to be issued.
To use the eTicket, you will need a smartphone and the Katholikentag app, which will be available for download from March 2022. As soon as the app is available for download, the booked eTickets can be displayed in the app. They can be easily forwarded to group participants via codes.
Please note: 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.
The first dispatch of paper tickets is free of charge. Subsequent dispatch of paper tickets ordered later and dispatch of programme booklets costs a flat rate of 3 Euro for shipping cost within the EU. Please note that any mailing will not begin until April 2022 – regardless of when you register – and we will not ship outside the EU.
For some events it will be necessary to make a free reservation in advance. Further information on the procedure and which events are involved will be available when the programme is published in March 2022.
Changes, returns and cancellations
Late registrations are possible. However, we ask for your understanding that we cannot guarantee accommodation for registrations that reach us after 31 March 2022. Changes to your accommodation request (change between private and communal accommodation) can still be communicated to us until 15 April 2022. We will not be able to refund the accommodation fee for cancellations received after this date.
Individual tickets or entire registrations can be cancelled online via your "My Katholikentag" account. eTickets will be automatically deactivated and credited. If you have already received paper tickets from us, these must first be returned to us in order to be credited. 5-day tickets can also be returned during the Katholikentag until 26 May 2022, 2 p.m., on site at the Participation Service.
Please note: When returning 5-day tickets, only the price of the tickets at the early bird discount will be refunded; this also applies to tickets ordered or purchased later.
Day tickets can be returned during the Katholikentag until 10.00 a.m. on the day of validity, 20 Euro will be refunded. Evening tickets can be returned until 6 p.m. and will be refunded in full. Again, eTickets will be automatically deactivated and credited. Paper tickets must be returned to us in advance or during the Katholikentag on site at the Participation Service.
