Get inspired

With the KulturPass, you can take advantage of a wide range of local cultural activities. If you turn 18 in 2024 (year of birth 2006), you will receive a budget of 100 euros. You can use this budget for concerts, cinema, museum and theater visits or to buy books and records. The budget is available to you from your 18th birthday.

If you turned 18 in 2023 (year of birth 2005) and have successfully identified yourself, you can use your budget until December 31, 2024.



All young people who turn 18 in 2024 (born in 2006) and live in Germany can activate the personal budget from March 1, 2024 using an online ID procedure with an electronic ID card, an eID card or an electronic residence permit (eAT). From the 18th birthday, the budget will be made available in the KulturPass app. Registration and identification are already possible before the 18th birthday.
Anyone who turned 18 in 2023 (born in 2005) was able to activate the culture budget until 31.12.2023.

Further information can be found in our HelpCenter.

Identification with a passport is not possible. 

The individual steps for registration and identification are performed directly in the KulturPass app.
