- When does the RHEIN SIEG FORUM open on the day of the event?
Generally one hour before the start of the event. For more information, please refer to the event page in the programme.
For public events, the doors of the foyer usually open one hour before the programme begins. During this time, you can relax and enjoy a drink or snack in the foyer area, drop off your items at the cloakroom and get in the mood for the programme. Often, final preparations are still taking place in the hall or on the stage during this time, so seating usually begins about half an hour before starting
- How do I get to the RHEIN SIEG FORUM without a car?
The RHEIN SIEG FORUM is located in the city centre of Siegburg and easily reached by all means of transportation. The ICE train station Siegburg/Bonn is only 500 metres away on foot.
As a partner of the "rightandfair" programme for sustainability in the event industry, we would like to encourage you to avoid using your car when visiting the RHEIN SIEG FORUM. Come by bike! Starting in summer 2021, a large bicycle station will be available across from the RHEIN SIEG FORUM for you to park your bike. Alternatively, you can arrive by public transport.
- And if I do come by car, where can I park?
The parking centre at the RHEIN SIEG FORUM offers direct access to the building. There are over 350 parking spaces available. The parking guidance system shows you which parking spaces are still available as you enter the city. You can park your car here for 1.60 € per hour or a maximum daily rate of 9.00 €. If you enter the parking garage after 18:30, you receive a special evening rate of 2.00 € where you can leave your vehicle until 09:00 the next day. Another advantage is that you can pay your parking fee in advance when you arrive -- no long queues at the ticket machines after the event.
