EasterHegg 2020 – Ticket Rückerstattung

EasterHegg 2020 – Ticket Rückerstattung


Vielen Dank für eure Solidaritätsbekundungen, Ideen, Spenden- und Hilfsangebote nach unserer Absage. Da auch ein Verschieben nicht möglich ist, steht nun fest, im Jahr 2020 wird die 20. Ausgabe des EasterHegg nicht stattfinden.

Was passiert mit den Tickets und den vorbestellten T-Shirts?

Auch wenn wir einige Nachrichten mit dem Tenor “Behaltet bitte das Geld.” bekommen haben, ist es für uns am einfachsten, alle Tickets sowie die vorbestellten Artikel (T-Shirts, Hoodies) komplett zu erstatten. Das eingegangene Geld fließt exakt auf die Konten zurück, von denen es gekommen ist. Wir werden diesen …

Behind the scenes: Chaos Communication Congress presale

A scanner, watching you. Beep!

Have you ever tried to solve a problem that is completely, utterly, ridiculously impossible?

Welcome to our world! We’re the team running the Chaos Communication Congress ticket sales, and we want to follow the good example set by the content teams, and explain a bit of our work.

Now, from the outside, our problems may not seem all that impossible. In fact, you may think we have very little problems indeed: We run the presale of a …

36C3: Tickets & Presale


It’s that time of the year again – we’re opening the presale for this year’s Chaos Communication Congress!

As in the last years, there will be two phases, with the first one starting on 2019-10-21. During the first phase, we will invite the core of our community to participate in the presale. It will end as soon as no more tickets are left in the pool for this phase, but by 2019-11-07 at the latest.

During the second phase we’ll open the presale to everybody on three dates. These dates are:

  • 2019-11-08 12:00 CET

Einladung zum Junghackertag auf dem 35C3


Zu unserer Freude haben sich in den letzten Jahren immer mehr Junghacker auf dem Congress eingefunden. Daher bieten wir auch diesmal, wie schon in den Vorjahren, einen speziell auf Kinder und Jugendliche zugeschnittenen Junghackertag an.
Am zweiten Congresstag, dem 28. Dezember, organisieren Freiwillige aus vielen Assemblies von etwa 10 bis 17 Uhr ein vielseitiges Workshop-Programm für angehende Hacker und Hackerinnen.

Easterhegg 2017 – Die Resterampe öffnet


Nach der unglaublichen ersten Phase des Vorverkaufs haben wir inzwischen die Rückläufer aufgearbeitet. Daher haben wir nun einen zweiten Batch Tickets, der ab Morgen (Samstag 11.02.) 11:11 Uhr in den Vorverkauf geht. Falls du noch ein Ticket brauchst ist dies die letzte Chance ein Ticket für die Easterhegg 2017 zu bekommen. Den Vorverkauf findest du unter

Easterhegg 2017 – Es gibt Tickets


Es ist soweit, es gibt Tickets für die Easterhegg 2017 in Mühlheim / Main. Der Vorverkauf findet sich unter:

Das Ticket für das Wochenende kostet 42 Euro. Wenn du freiwillig mehr bezahlen möchtest, freuen wir uns, wenn du ein Supporter-Ticket nimmst. Damit gibst du Leuten, die sich den Eintritt nicht leisten können, die Chance an der Veranstaltung teil zu haben. Weiterhin gibt es die Möglichkeit auf dem Gelände mit einem Wohnwagen zu campen. Leider ist der Platz sehr grob geschottert, so dass wir vom Campen mit einem Zelt auf dem Platz abraten müssen. …

32C3 Ticket Status


As of Saturday morning, the 32c3 ticket presale is sold out. We are overwhelmed by the enormous number of people who want to join us in Hamburg, but unfortunately the venue’s capacity is limited. Therefore, there will not be another batch of tickets for presale.

Survival tips for professional visitors

Survival tips for professional visitors


We’re delighted by the immense public interest in the diverse activities at Chaos Communication Camp in Mildenberg. All lectures will be remotely available via live-stream and download. This way, we include community members that are unable to attend. Of course, media representatives are welcome as well, as is the team shooting parts of a documentary on site.

Camp tickets sold out? Not entirely….


– Yes, at this very moment you cannot order any tickets.
– There are unpaid tickets reserved, that we’ll put back into sale.
– We will tell you around 24 hours before.

There is a ten day payment duration. We know you(*), so we usually take this deadline fairly easy. As a campsite has restrictions in space and infrastructure, it is not possible to have more people than space actually available. 4500 Tickets have already gone over the digital cash desk, but we haven’t received the money for all of them.

Now we apparently need to take it less easy: We clean up all our ticket-related issues, like …

On the cost of large-scale projects…

On the cost of large-scale projects…


As we all know, the cost of large-scale endeavors is hard to predict. Sometimes, more costs come up unexpectedly. When we started the ticket sale, we presented you with an estimate of the costs at that time. Divide that by the maximum number of participants and you get an average ticket price we had to meet to cover those costs. Those costs were already calculated conservatively, but reality beat us to it (one of the reasons is that we are going to have to produce all the electricity ourselves, another is water).

Thus, the new required average ticket price is up to 228 Euros, instead of 211 …

Camp 2015 Ticket Shop is open now!


We all are very much looking forward to Camp 2015 – the new location makes things very exciting but such a new location also makes it very costly: We’ll need to get at least 950.000 EUR from ticket sales, which brings us down to an average ticket price of ~212 EUR.

When we moved the Congress to the new venue in 2012 we have been facing the same issue, remember?
Back then, we didn’t want to raise the price above 100 EUR and right now we don’t want to go above 200 EUR: We leave this, again, up to everyone of you to contribute as much as you can afford to – to make …

Chaos Communication Camp 2015: Save the date!


Not just because of tradition, but because we can: There will be a Camp in 2015 again!

After more than three thousand guests at the last Camp in 2011, we expect many outdoor enthusiasts, who like to hack during the day and marvel at the light displays at night and will celebrate the ultimate party in the middle of the festival season with us. Let’s just bring all the great experiences from the Congress out on the lawn and do all the experiments too dangerous for the halls of the CCH!

After an exhaustive search we found the perfect green field site for hackers of all kinds to build a camp with …

31C3 Ticket Shop Has Opened


Need to say more?

We’ve opened the 31C3 ticket shop. You can buy tickets online at

You’ll notice we had to raise prices slightly.

It is awfully difficult to predict the total income for an event of this size. Maybe the price for a standard ticket is 10€ too much now, depending on how many people will come. If that turns out to be true, we’ll reduce it again next year.

In the meantime, if you can’t afford to pay the standard price, don’t hesitate to use the “Apply” button on the bottom right of the page. It will present you with a text input and send a mail on …

[EH2014] Wichtiges Update zum Easterhegg-Karfreitag


Die Hausverwaltung berichtet

Alle Dressurversuche des Amtsschimmels schlugen fehl. Ein eigens dafür beauftragter rechtsgelehrter Dressurreiter empfahl uns die öffentliche Veranstaltung für den Karfreitag abzusagen. Mehr Infos im folgenden Text.

Wichtige Information zum Easterhegg-Karfreitag

Da wir vom Amt für öffentliche Unordnung keine Erlaubnis bekommen haben am Karfreitag im Kulturhaus Arena eine über den Schankbetrieb hinausgehende Veranstaltung stattfinden zu lassen, müssen wir leider hiermit die Easterhegg für den Karfreitag absagen.

Tickets available for preorder


Last year Congress moved to Hamburg and it was great to have enough space for all of you! To ensure that this will be the case for 30C3 again, we booked some more space this year. Therefore we kindly ask you to choose one of our supporter tickets, as 30C3 will cost us much more than standard tickets priced at 80 EUR will pay. Supporter tickets are available for 100, 120 and 140 EUR.

In addition business tickets for 350, 550 and 750 EUR are on offer if you or your company want to make a larger contribution to congress, supporting congress and all the volunteers driving it. Please note that this …

Ticket-Vorverkauf für den 29. Chaos Communication Congress


Der Vorverkauf der Eintrittskarten für den 29. Chaos Communication Congress 29C3, der dieses Jahr in Hamburg stattfindet, beginnt heute.

Tickets gibt es unter

Der diesjährige Congress steht unter dem Motto “Not my department” und wird sich mit den Konsequenzen nicht nur des eigenen Forschungsdrangs auseinandersetzen – von Überwachungssystemen, Drohnen- und Schwarmintelligenzsteuerung bis zu Biohacking. [1]1 Gleichzeitig geht es um das Streben der Hackerszene danach, Technologien und gesellschaftliche Abläufe zu erforschen und neu zusammenzusetzen, die auf den …

29C3 – Tickets and Pricing


29C3 will cost us much more than standard tickets priced at 80 EUR will pay. Thus we’ll sell supporter tickets for 100 and 120 EUR. Please consider buying one of these. Help us minimize our losses and support others who can’t afford paying much more! Thanks a lot! :)

Moving the 29C3 to Hamburg will cost a lot of money. As far as we know yet, 80 EUR for a standard ticket will not cover those costs, even if a lot more people will show up at the …

Hey! What about the tickets for 29C3?

Hey! What about the tickets for 29C3?


As we had a lot of people asking, here some answers:

Q: How much will the tickets cost?
A: Our priority is to keep the price for the tickets as low as in the years before. So we currently assume that it will be around 80 Euros — as it was last year.

Q: What if I can not afford that?
A: There will be a friend’s request address as we had it before. More details coming with the start of the presale.

Q: But what is this friend’s request?
A: At 28C3 we handled it like this. Have a look.

Q: Ah, there will be a presale for tickets?
A: Yes, there will be a presale to buy a ticket in advance.

Q: So I …

28C3 – Can’t Afford to Pay the Full Price?


Since we forgot to mention it in the first place: Yes, we do have a 28c3-friends request address for people who can’t afford to pay the full ticket price. We’ve added information to

If you or someone you know can’t afford to pay the full price for a ticket, send a mail to Please tell us, why this person can’t pay the full price and why he or she should take part in 28C3 nevertheless. Usually we agree on some affordable price. But please keep in mind that tickets are already very cheap and that we can handle only a limited …

Camp 2011: Ticket Shop Opened


We’re selling tickets for the Camp now. For more information, please read the Tickets page in our wiki.

The main presale for 27C3 is beginning


Dear attendants in spe,

as announced earlier, the second batch of tickets for 27C3 will be available accompanying the initial Fahrplan release.

At Thursday, November 11th at 9 p.m. CET (that is 8 p.m. UTC), we will release the largest of our three allotments with 2,000 tickets. Log into our presale system. While the first batch was designated to hackers with rather long journeys to allow booking flights and hotels early, most tickets were sold to Germans. We have to rethink the policy for 28C3.

Please watch out for the booby traps below, so you won’t be left unhappy without a ticket:

  • To …

Different payment options for 27C3 tickets


As announced, there are many different possibilities to pay for your congress-tickets this year.

You cannot only pay by bank transfer, from today you can also choose to:

  • pay in cash at your local Erfa
    Please remember, that not all Erfas offer this service – and that the guy who takes your payments isn’t available all the time. Please find a worldwide list of all cashdesks at /wiki/Cashdesks.
  • pay with your creditcard
    With an additional charge of 5% you can also use your creditcard. Please log into the presale-system in order to find your unique payment-link.

Performance test successfully survived!


As expected, the pre-sale-system has survived the performance check immediately to the release time.

The rush for the Pre-sale is still enormously. The tickets from the first Quota will be sold out in no time.

But: No Panic.

As announced, there will be a second, much larger, quota at the beginning of November. So anyone who had no luck this time get a new chance at the second quota.

The created accounts are also valid in the second quota.

The quota for our volunteers (Angels) from last year, dubbed ‘the golden token’, will be independent of the other “normal” quota.

For all risks and side …

How to survive the pre-sale


In order to avoid any confusion, here is the short and sweet version of everything there is to know about the 27C3 ticket presale.

  • The System will be available by today (10.10.10) at exactly 10:10am Berlin Time (08:10 UTC) via – if this doesn’t work, try instead.
  • The first batch of 800 Tickets will be accessible by then. The second (and biggest) batch will start after we released the first version of the schedule (the Fahrplan) in the beginning of November. More batches will be announced after those. Everyone who did not get one of the …

ICE 2342 to 27c3 will be delayed by a few days.


As may you have noticed, the start of ticket sales for the 27th Chaos Communication Congress is still delayed.

We understand your annoyance. Rest assured, it annoys us just as much.

Anyone of you ever involved in a project knows: Something always comes amiss, there is always some unexpected problem pushing the release date back into the future. Project “27c3” unfortunately is not an exception to this. Especially since all the work – including the presale system – is being done by volunteers, most of them with a regular day job.

Behind the scenes our coding and hacking mill is spinning, while …

Tickets for the 27th Chaos Communication Congress


While the Call of Participation for the 27. Chaos Communication Congress (27C3) “We come in peace” lasts until 9th October 2010, we would like to make the travel scheduling for the willing people a bit easier. This year a Presale will be available.

Like it was impressively shown last year, the fluctuations in the rush on the Congress aren’t measurable in any way.
The bcc was completely packed, and all tickets sold. The principle of hope didn’t work out, and the displeasure by the people which traveled far and got rejected, or didn’t get a clear announcement relating to the …
