Formula E in Germany: ticket sales for the Berlin race in May 2024 have begun
The ticket pre-sale for the 2024 Formula E Berlin E-Prix has begun. The electric championship is offering single day tickets as well as combined tickets for the entire race weekend via its online shop, as it did in 2023. Fans can expect a new track layout on the disused airport site in Berlin-Tempelhof for the double-header in the German capital on 11 and 12 May 2024.
As in 2022 and 2023, ticket prices have not been increased any further and range from 5 to 99 euros. There are three different seating categories, A, B and C, as well as standing room in the Fan Village (no grandstand seating). As in the previous year, there are different age groups per category, according to which the prices are determined: Children (3-15 years), "young adults" (16-24 years) and adults (25 years and over).
There is no discount for senior citizens. No ticket is required for children aged 0 to 2 if they are sitting on their parent's/guardian's lap (maximum one child per adult). Minors under the age of 16 must always be accompanied by an adult.
All tickets include admission to the "Allianz Fan Village". In this area, visitors can experience the Formula E supporting programme. This includes music, food stands and exhibitions by the manufacturers involved. The Formula E track itself can only be viewed to a very limited extent from here. However, the action on the track can be followed via large video screens.
|Young adults (16-24)
*Only in combination with a booked ticket for wheelchair users; free separate ticket must still be formally booked
Which seats offer the best view at Formula E in Berlin?
The new track layout (see embedded video below) has also fundamentally changed the position of all the grandstands in 2024. They are now almost all close to Tempelhofer Feld and no longer in the area of the former flight gates. We currently assume that access to the event site could also be from Tempelhofer Feld for the first time. We are not yet able to say whether and to what extent the covered area of the apron will be used.

The best view is likely to be from grandstands B1 and B2, as the start and finish straight and the entire pit lane are clearly visible from here. However, each ticket here costs 99 euros. Grandstand C1 offers a similarly good view (at least in the upper rows), but is just as expensive. Grandstand D1 should therefore be a good compromise between price and view, but we also expect to see plenty of overtaking manoeuvres at the end of the long back straight in front of the cheaper E1 grandstand.
A general tip: the higher you sit, the better you can see other parts of the track.
Those wishing to attend the Berlin E-Prix on both days can purchase combined tickets for the entire weekend. Seats cannot be changed between Saturday and Sunday. The weekend tickets offer a certain savings potential. For example, the combined ticket for category A always costs 179 euros. Category B has a price range of 60/89/119 euros, depending on the age group, and category C costs 45/65/89 euros.
Wheelchair users pay the same prices as category C. However, access to the Fan Village is not cheaper with a combined ticket, but costs as much as two individual days in each age group.
The schedule for the two Formula E races in Berlin has not yet been finalised. In 2023, however, it was as follows on both days: The event would start at 8 a.m. local time each day. A Free Practice session was then held before Qualifying began at 10.40 a.m. The race started at 3 p.m. each day. We expect a similar schedule in 2024.
As in previous years, tickets can only be paid for by credit card (Mastercard, Visa, American Express), although this has led to displeasure among German Formula E fans year after year. It is not yet known whether tickets will be sold at site on the race weekend, but it is very likely.
