The Blaue Nacht Ticket is a VGN combination ticket:

Mit der Eintrittskarte kostenlose Fahrt im VGN All tickets not only guarantee the overall package for Die Blaue Nacht. They are also VGN combination tickets – your public transport ticket to Die Blaue Nacht.

With a Blaue Nacht Ticket, you can comfortably get to Die Blaue Nacht using the buses, trams and trains in the entire VGN public transport area (Verkehrsverbund Großraum Nürnberg), and also get back home (until end of service, including Nightliner buses).

The experiment at the 2017 Blaue Nacht was very successful and will become the rule starting with this year’s Blaue Nacht:

On Friday, 4 May (8 p.m. until midnight), there will be a preview of the projects from the Blaue Nacht Art Competition (p.16 in the programme brochure, marked with Blaue-Nacht-Kunstwettbewerb ) and on Saturday, 5 May, starting at 7 p.m. the entire package of Die Blaue Nacht (including the Blaue Nacht Art Competition, of course).
If you want to enjoy Die Blaue Nacht on both days, you will need a FRÜHSPURT (EARY BIRD) or a PREMIUM TICKET, both only available during special periods during the advance ticket sales:

  • FRÜHSPURT (EARLY BIRD) TICKET during the first month of advance ticket sales, December 2017
  • For 3 € additional fee / person in addition to the normal advance ticket price (in all categories, including ZAC, see above), the PREMIUM TICKET is available between 4 and 15 April 2018 (midnight).

Advance sales for Die Blaue Nacht only on Saturday, 5 May, will continue as usual, i.e. without additional fee (until 4 May 2018, closing time or midnight for Print@home).
During Die Blaue Nacht, all tickets will be exchanged for bracelets.
Whatever ticket you choose: they are all VGN combination tickets (see above), the bracelets, too!
