General Questions

When should I book my hotel?

In my opinion the best time to book a hotel for WGT is approx 9/10 months prior to the next WGT, if you book when you leave or 12 months before you tend to have to pay top dollar, the only exception to this would be if there is another festival in town at the same time, then book as soon as you can.

What is the best hotel location?

I recommend staying in the centre of town, close to the Hauptbahnhof as this is where many of the after parties will take place, so less distance to stagger at the end of the evening. If you are after a cheaper hotel, stay outside of Leipzig Centre area, I would try West of the city (where many of the newer venues seem to be located)

When do tickets go on sale?

Tickets will go on sale at about the end of Feb beginning of March prior to WGT taking place

How much do tickets cost?

Tickets in 2018 cost €120 in advance + postage and internation bank fees (you wont get much change from €140 or you can buy them in Leipzig when you arrive (recommended), they have never sold out, and never will (the festival does not work that way)

What is an Obsorge ticket?

This is a camping ticket, and you have to pay extra, this then gets you a different colour wristband that allows you access to the campsite at the Agra Messepark

Is Leipzig city safe?

Its as safe as any other city in Europe, in the many years I have been going there have only been a few reports of minor incidents, be sensible and dont walk down back unlit roads on your own and you will be fine. In general Leipzig seems to be a very friendly city, the streets are wide and well lit at night and everybody know we are in town
