Other advantages and subscription conditions

For each subscription, you will receive a personal customer card in check-card format (Abo-Card), which entitles you to a 10% discount on individual tickets for BR concerts (including advance booking and system fees as well as MVV). The number of discounted tickets you can buy per concert with the Abo-Card is not limited. Standing room tickets, dress rehearsals, benefit concerts and concerts with third-party promoters are excluded from the discount. For technical reasons, the subscription card can only be used at the box office in the Isarphilharmonie, Herkulessaal and Prinzregententheater.

A subscription (with the exception of Subscription S and Merkur Subscription) is automatically renewed for a further season if it is not cancelled in writing within four weeks of receipt of the invoice. Payment is made after receipt of the invoice by direct debit or bank transfer. If the payment deadline is not met, the subscription is considered released. Subscription tickets will be sent out no later than one week before the first concert of the respective subscription series, but earlier if possible.

Subscription tickets entitle the holder to attend the concert introductions, if such are offered. Introductions usually begin 75 minutes before the concert starts.

Subscribers have the option of pre-ordering individual tickets from the time concert dates are announced until one month before the official advance sale at the Subscription Office (please indicate customer number). Please use the order card (PDF – only in German) and send the completed form to us by e-mail, fax or post (for the contact details of the subscription office, please refer to the information in the right-hand column on this page). The pre-order is non-binding and will be processed shortly before the presale date in the order of receipt. You will usually receive an order confirmation or a cancellation before the presale date. A one-time service fee of € 6 will be charged for processing written advance orders.

Please notify us of your change request no later than four weeks after receipt of the invoice. Subscriptions that have already been paid for cannot be changed. Bayerischer Rundfunk reserves the right to change cast, date, program or seat for artistic or technical reasons. Changes do not entitle the subscriber to return the subscription. It is also not possible to change to another concert. This also applies to unused concert dates.

Subscribers of series A, B, C, D and S, who cannot attend a concert, have the possibility to exchange their place within the same program (Thu/ Fri/Sat) and the same price category. The possibility of exchange is based on the remaining available seats and is limited to once per season. In order to make the exchange, the subscription ticket must be received at the subscription office no later than five working days before the concert. In order to ensure quick processing, we ask that you notify the subscription office in advance by telephone of your exchange request.

BR reserves the right to make changes to the lineup, schedule, program or seating for artistic or technical reasons. Changes do not entitle the subscriber to return the subscription. It is also not possible to change to another concert. This also applies to unused concert dates.

Subscribers receive up-to-date information about concerts and events by mail or e-mail. To ensure that we can continue to do so in the future, we ask that you notify us in writing of any changes of address. In all correspondence, please include your customer number and subscription series.

Subscribers may transfer their seats for individual concerts to third parties. Since they receive a separate ticket for each subscription concert, the ticket can be passed on individually. If the ticket cannot be passed on personally, we will gladly issue a replacement ticket that can be picked up in the subscription holder’s name. The replacement ticket is issued directly at the respective box office and does not need to be registered in advance.

Each subscription or one-way ticket for a Bayerischer Rundfunk concert includes free use of the MVV public transportation system for travel to and from the event (does not apply to replacement tickets issued at the box office). A corresponding imprint on the tickets serves as proof.

The concerts of Bayerischer Rundfunk are regularly broadcast on television, radio, the Internet (live stream / on demand) or recorded for CD or DVD productions. Therefore, there may be slight disruptions due to square closures, cameras, microphones or additional lighting. Of course, we always try to keep these restrictions as low as possible and thank you very much for your understanding. By participating in the event, you agree that recordings and images of you and/or your minor children may be broadcast, disseminated, in particular used in the media (including television, Internet and print products) and also made publicly accessible and perceptible on individual demand and regardless of the type of receiving device, without any claim to remuneration. Included are possible paid uses of the production in all types, forms and media. Due to recordings and / or live broadcasts, in case of delay, admission is only possible during the intermission. For concerts with only one work, late admission is completely excluded.
