Visitors arriving in a wheelchair and people who require an accompanying person (in Germany: disability ID with indicator “B”) can access Frankfurter Buchmesse for free, with or without their accompanying person, on all five days of the fair.
People who don’t have a “B” on their disability ID, but have a disability level (GdB – Grad der Behinderung) of at least 50 can enter the fair at a discounted rate on all five days. If you wish to buy a discounted trade visitor ticket online, please send a scan of your disability ID to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know which day(s) you wish to visit the fair.
Visitors with a disability level under 50 pay the normal ticket prices.
