Wheelchair user carers

Visitors in wheelchairs can get a free DDW ticket for one carer. This ticket can be collected at the service desks at the Klokgebouw, Veem, Sectie-C, Eindhoven Central Station, the Van Abbemuseum and at Campina. The person being accompanied pays the standard price.

Personal pass

Do you wish to use your DDW ticket for several days, but for legitimate reasons (for example your profession or hospitalisation) you are unable to wear your wristband for the duration? In that case DDW offers the service to get a personal pass. This can be done at the service desks of the Klokgebouw and Graduation Show at Campina. The personal pass will replace the wristband. Because making a personal pass is an expensive and time-consuming process and serves as an exception to the regular ticket system, we charge a fee of €1.00 per pass. 

Please note: creating a personal is only possible when you are still wearing the wristband. You will first need to exchange your e-ticket or buy a wristband at the ticket desk before a personal pass can be created for you. 
It is therefore best to request the card immediately or as soon as possible after receiving your wristband. Again, if the wristband is cut, it loses its validity and it is no longer possible to make a replacement card. Let only the service employee cut the wristband for you.

Unfortunately, we cannot comply with all requests to exchange a wristband for a pass and the decision of the service employee will be binding.

The online ticket sale is facilitated by Eventbrite. Should you encounter any problems when buying your ticket, please contact Eventbrite.
