How to use the Bonuscard + Culture?
Cooperating cultural institutions reserve for all performances in principle (special events such as premieres, third-party productions or festivals may be excluded) a fixed free ticket quota for holders of the Bonuscard + Culture. These are not remaining tickets, but tickets of all price categories, which can be pre-ordered and collected at the box office upon presentation of the Bonuscard + Culture.
For museums it is even easier: unlimited free admission to the exhibitions on presentation of the Bonuscard + Culture at the box office.
In addition, there are always free ticket promotions with organizers and partners who can offer tickets for individual appointments. These dates will be published under event tips, on Facebook or in the newsletter.
Where is the free of charge for cultural offers?
Free visit of cultural events
Like all other visitors, you will receive your card directly from the respective cultural institution. These usually reserve a fixed free ticket quota for visitors with Bonuscard + Culture for each performance. These are cards of all price categories that can be picked up at the box office upon presentation of the Bonuscard + Culture. Since the quotas are limited, a pre-order, which almost all partners offer, makes sense. Individual events – eg. Premieres, festivals or cooperation offers – can be excluded from the free of charge. For a few partners, the cost-free applies only to certain productions or series of events. For each cultural partner, under „Karteninfos“ you will find exactly which offers you will receive free tickets with the Bonuscard + Culture.
Free museum visit
Museums – even more simple!
Upon presentation of the Bonuscard + Culture at the museum cashier, you will receive unlimited free admission to the exhibitions. Special exhibitions, however, are excluded from the freedom of some museums. Participation in public tours and museum events is also possible free of charge for some partners. The corresponding information can be found under the respective partners under „Karteninfos“.
How many free tickets do I receive?
For each Bonuscard + Culture you will receive one free ticket per show or museum visit.
Exception: Children under 6 years are entitled to the parent’s Bonuscard + Culture.
Will the cultural partners receive financial compensation?
KULTUR FÜR ALLE Stuttgart can only work in cooperation with the cultural partners, who provide cards free of charge for owners of the Bonuscard + Culture and do not receive any financial compensation in any form whatsoever.
