Sunday, 10.12.2017 from 9:00 Uhr (Early Bird) / 10:00 till17:00 Uhr 


The entrance will be at HALL 5.

There will be different queues for DAILY TICKETS, WEEKEND TICKETS and VIP/DIAMOND PASS TICKETS as well as press. 

Early Bird Entrance

VIP and press

For everyone who did not get the information yet: Diamond Pass ticket holders are allowed to enter the convention at 9am due to the tight photo shoot schedule. There will be an extra queue for Diamond Pass ticket holders right next to the VIP TICKET queue. The VIP TICKET holders will be scanned first and afterwards, Diamond Pass ticket holders will be let in.



At the entrance, you’ll receive a wristband that you’ll have to wear throughout the whole weekend. You won’t be able to reenter the Convention on Sunday if you cut off the wristband on Saturday!

Good news: VIP PACKAGES as well as DIAMOND PASSES & VOUCHER will be given to you at the entrance, this means that you don’t have to pick them up at the information booth.

And even better news: We’ll use the whole hall 5 for the entrance, which means that you won’t have to wait outside in the cold.


For everyone who does not have a ticket yet and wants to buy it at the box office: The BOX OFFICE will be right outside hall 5. After you bought the tickets, you’ll have to line up at the queue just as every other visitor.

Generally, we recommend to buy your tickets beforehand - it’ll make everything easier and faster at the convention day.

If you still decide to buy the ticket at the box office, we’ll recommend to buy the tickets with cash.

CoSplay: Weapon and Creation Rules

What would a Convention be without Cosplayers and without their very detailed Cosplayes including their weapons? Nothing! To guarantee full safety for all visitors during the Convention there are some rules that need to be followed for the Custumes and Weapons. More info HERE.


 ATTENTION: Important information

There will be a football game on the 9.12. in the Westfalenhallen at the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK at 15:30. This will lead to considerably increased traffic and we advise you to either arrive very early or to use public transport.
The Strobelallee will be closed on Saturday! If you arrive by car, we propose that you use the parking lots A4, A3, A2 und A8.



There is a direct connection through B1 (A40) to the motorways A1 (Hansalinie), A45 (Sauerlandlinie), A2 (Berlin – Hannover – Dortmund – Oberhausen), A42 (Duisburg – Dortmund), B1 (A44) (Dortmund – Kassel). Please follow the signs to Dortmund and watch out for signs to WESTFALENHALLEN DORTMUND. If you are using a navigation system, please enter “Rheinlanddamm 200” as your destination or pick “Westfalenhallen” as a special object, if possible.
From there just follow the signs.
WATCH OUT: Environment Zone Dortmund
The City of Dortmund introduced a new Environment Zone in 2012. This includes big parts of Dortmund – also the area of the Westfalenhalle. To enter this Environment Zone you need an Environment Badge. More info here
