In order to increase your safety even more effectively, please observe the following guidelines:

  • Accept bag searches
  • Present your entrance ticket upon demand, even once you are in the Halls
  • Only “carry-on” size luggage will be allowed and should be checked-in at the cloakroom,
  • and above all make sure to never leave your luggage unattended!
