On showing of your facilities card, you will receive a ticket here from 9 am onwards, which will indicate the time block during which you can visit the attraction. The number of disabled visitors who can visit the attraction at the same time is limited (in connection with the safety in case of an evacuation). This means that there is a limited number of tickets available for each time block. Do you want to make certain that you can visit Symbolica? Then make sure you get a ticket in time!
