Entrance fees

Within the framework of the Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie, modified entrance fees apply:


In all the exhibiting institutions involved visitors can pay their desired amount as the entrance fee according to the “Pay What You Want” pricing model. Instead of the usual entrance fee in the Kunstverein and the previous entrance fee of 7 € for the Biennale, the payment proceeds at the exit of the Kunstverein after the visit of the exhibition, and is exclusively at the discretion of the visitor. The Biennale recommends the payment of 7 € per exhibition venue.


Members of the Heidelberger Kunstverein and other art associations affiliated to ADKV have free admission to the exhibitions and public guided tours of the Heidelberger Kunstverein. The same applies to members of ICT and holders of the ICOM card.


* Pupils, students, artists and the unemployed on presentation of a valid ID


ATTENTION: For the exhibition ›Resisting Images‹ within the framework of the Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie, different admission procedures apply. These also affect the members of the Kunstverein.
