    Ticket vending machines

    by Sjalen Updated Nov 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Be aware that Speyer has only a small railway station which means two ticket counters and at holidays, these tend to be closed, leaving you to battle it out with the ticket vending machines, dreaded even amongst the Germans themselves. They DO work, but bear in mind that here you have a DB machine and a local transport machine and if all you want is to go to Mannheim with the S-train to get to the mainline railways, then you can often not buy tickets from the DB machine so head for the local one at once. Also be aware that these machines do accept cards but that you need to have very "un-damaged" cards. The slightest "cash machine made it wobbly" cards and it won't accept them.

    Bollards

    Strolling across the Domplatz, be aware that cars can come at you at quite some speed. What you think is a cobbled square to walk across in fact includes a street and there is no elevated pavement or anything to show you this, just stone bollards to direct traffic into the narrow lane.

    Calculate your time !

    You will most probably need the whole day in the Technik-Museum in order to see everything and really enjoy it.
    When you enter the Technik Museum in Speyer, you have the choice to buy a combination ticket for the IMAX-cinema + the Museum.
    You may see the films in The IMAX at reduced prices, BUT you have to choose a fixed time, when you are going to watch the films.
    Only when you arrive in the very morning you still have a good choice of tickets for the IMAX, that has also performances AFTER the museum is closed already !!!
    These tickets will be gone first of course.
    So be there in the morning or simply skip the IMAX at all...
    ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
    The last performances of the IMAX are :
    Monday+Tuesday 06.00 p.m.
    Wednesday+Thursday 07.00 p.m.
    Friday till Sunday 08.00 p.m.
    ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
