From 14 days before the event takes place, we recommend to use the following

www.formular.rhein-feuerwerk.de/last-minute
The boat tickets that are offered for private resell on the
"private resale form" as well as on the "last minute form" are offered on the relevant firework round boat cruise internet site. The success rate of the private sale depends on the date of the event, the early registration in the online form(s) and price discount.
Starting at 3:30 p.m. on the day before the event, no more registrations are possible on the internet site. Upon phone request, the cell phone number of the seller / bus driver / tour guide will be passed on so that he / she can resell the boat tickets directly at the boat landing stage to the buyer against cash payment.
