  • You pay the full price of 36.50€ until the end but when and how long the exhibitions / shops are open is nowhere.

Either tickets cheaper from a time when everything is closed or open hours also communicate clearly. So unfortunately very disappointing in terms of price/performance, as we could experience so for 36,50€ only the street and surroundings but not the exhibitions / shops etc.
