As a precautionary measure, we would like to point out that the right of cancellation for distance selling contracts does not apply to our events due to the statutory provisions in Section 312g (2) No. 9 German Civil Code, because the ticket purchase provides for the provision of our services on a specific date.

The booker or his/her representative (collector) named in the booking confirmation confirms at the start of the journey that he/she has been sufficiently instructed in the operation of the bicycle and the safety precautions to be observed.

Later complaints about defects already recognisable at the time of handover cannot be accepted.

11.6 If the bicycle is returned earlier, for whatever reason, the proportionate hire price will not be refunded.

Thereafter, k3 stadterlebnisse will charge 50% of the hire price.
