Autographs/selfies (if the guest offers selfies) can be purchased at each guest booth on the day of the convention. You can only pay cash!
We may presell autographs for certain guests. If this is the case, we will announce this in advance.

Per autograph one item will be signed. If you would like to have more items signed, you need to purchase additional autographs.

Furthermore, the queues for autographs/photo ops are narrow and s-shaped, which means these areas will be difficult or impossible to access with a buggy.

It is not a problem at all to present a small gift/letter or similar to your celebrity guest at the guests autograph booth. However, it is not possible to present small gifts or letters durring your photo op. Please do this exclusively at the guests stand.



All important preliminary information on Walker Stalker Con can be found on our website http://walkerstalkercon.de/ under INFO/FAQ and PHOTO OP/FAQ.
All letters of our HOW TO WALKER STALKER A-Z, which have been published so far, will also be added to our website in the next few days. PHOTO OP schedules and details for the panel stage will be published on our website under PHOTO OP/SCHEDULE a few weeks before the convention.
You will also receive all important information (e.g. panel stage schedule, site plan of vendors, artists and celebrity booths, etc.) in a small booklet, at Will Call.



We have been working very hard these past few months, to make sure that all attendees will understand what is being said during the panels. We found two specialists - Anja Rau (www.tontastetext.de) and Daniela Eichmeyer (www.delfinterpret.de) - who will be translating spoken English directly into German writing - as live captioning. The German text will be displayed on LED video screens on the left and right side of the panel stage.
The foreign language should not stop you from asking the celebrity guest questions. The moderators at the panels speak German and English fluently and will be happy to translate your question for you.
All panels will be simultaneously translated from the English language into German sign language by sign language interpreters. For this purpose, we have also found two specialists: Silke Gold (www.silkegold.de) and Christopher Möller (www.christopher-moeller.de).
If you have any problems communicating with the celebrity guests at the autograph booths, our volunteers will gladly help you.


The clock is ticking and while packing your bag for the convention, you suddenly ask yourself "what should I take?"
We have put together a short list with the most necessary items you should not forget to bring with you:
- entry tickets
- printed photo op tickets
- photo ID
- powerbank
- cash
- debit card
- comfortable shoes
- folder for your autographs/photo ops
- item you would like to be signed (the star guests also have photos available to be signed at their booths)
- props for your photo op (Lucille and similar. - Please remember to check what is allowed to bring to the convention)
- blister plasters
And do not forget under any circumstances: good mood and a lot of patience!




Panels are moderated stage sessions (approx. 30 - 45 minutes long) with different celebrity guests. What happens during these panels? Everything is possible: information about the TV show, stories about life on set, or even completely unexpected topics.
It is also your chance to ask your favourite celebrity guest a question that you have always wanted to know the answer to.
Over the course of the weekend different panels will be offered. There will never be two panels at the same time.
The stage schedule and panel guests can be found approx. a week before Walker Stalker Con on our website http://walkerstalkercon.de/zeitplaene.
Panels are translated simultaneously from English language to German sign language. In addition, we support attendees who do not understand English very well by providing them German subtitles on the screens next to the stage.
We kindly ask you to follow the regulations and instructions of our local staff regarding taking pictures and filming during the panels.
For more information(photo ops/tickets/faqs go to:

You are welcome to bring your own photo/video cameras to take pictures or short videos. Also, SLR cameras are not a problem, as long as the lense does not exceed a focal length of 300mm and does not require a tripod.
Taking pictures/filming is not or only partially possible in some areas. Please pay attention to any signs and instructions from the staff, security or the host of a panel if you are asked not to take pictures/film in certain areas and/or panels.
If you are unsure whether taking pictures/filming is allowed, just ask a local staff member. You would like a photo/short video of you getting your autograph? Please ask the staff at the guests booth if this is would be ok. Each guest handles this differently.
In general, it is not allowed to take pictures/film in the direct area in front of the photo op room or inside the photo op room.


Do you still have questions about Walker Stalker Con in Mannheim which we have not answered yet? You have read the HOW TO WALKER STALKER A-Z, our FAQ at http://walkerstalkercon.de/faq
and the Photo Op FAQ http://walkerstalkercon.de/faq-photo-op
but you could not find the answer there? Send us an e-mail to info(at)walkerstalkercon.de

For some questions we are able to provide the answer right here:
1) When will you announce the next celebrity guests?
Once we know, you will be the first to find out about it.
2) Why is a certain celebrity guest not attending Walker Stalker Con in Mannheim?
Private or professional commitments, which do not allow him/her to attend our convention
3) What are the costs for autographs or selfies?
We do not know the prices yet and will not know them until the weekend of the convention.
4) Can I buy a selfie with Norman Reedus or Jeffrey Dean Morgan?
No, both do not offer selfies.
5) When will photo op duos/trios go on sale?
We expect them to go on sale in the course of next week.



All panels are simultaneously translated by sign language interpreters. Sign language interpreters are currently only partially available outside of the panels, as it seems that there are not many interpreters in Germany who are able to translate spoken English to German sign language simultaneously. However, if you know someone who is capable of doing this, let us know.
We are also working on real captioning in German, so that visitors who do not understand English fluently, can follow the panels. At the moment, however, it is not clear whether or not this can be realized in a reasonable way.

As you probably know, seating in the Convention Hall, apart from in front of the Panel Stage, is very rare. So that you can take a little break and rest, we will create a sit n eat area for you outside the convention hall. This area will be in a tent with tables and chairs right next to the Food Truck Market. There you can eat and drink something or just hang out, if there is no panel, photo op or autograph session on your schedule. 

Here is some information for you to keep your waiting times as short as possible.
All attendees have to go to the Will Call area. Really, all ticket holders (General admission, VIP, Gold, Platin - regardless of color tickets or online tickets)!
Admission and photo op tickets must be printed out in DIN A4 (it does not matter if you print your ticket in color or black & white) to avoid scanning issues and time delays at Will Call. It is important that the bar code is not bent and readable.
After your ticket has been scanned you will receive your wristband/convention pass (day tickets will only receive a wristband) with which you can enter the convention hall. The convention pass is only valid in combination with the wristband (must be around your wrist!).
The pick up stations are structured according to ticket levels (General admission, VIP, Gold, Platinum, Disability Service) and you have to line up accordingly. Do not worry, there will be signs and if you are not sure about your line, you can ask a local staff member for help.
After picking up you wristband/convention pass, you have to go to the other end of the Will Call area where you exchange your purchased photo op tickets at the photo op sales counter. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to buy more photo ops (if not sold out) at the photo op sales counter.
On Saturday and Sunday the photo op sales counter will be located in the convention hall.
If you pick up your wristband/passes on Friday, you can directly go to the convention hall on Saturday/Sunday and do not have to go to the Will Call area again.
Photo Op online presale ends on Friday, March 9th, 2018. After that you can only purchase photo ops at the convention.
Tickets for autographs/selfies will be sold directly at the celebrity guest booths and can therefore only purchased on Saturday or Sunday at the convention.



We have a wide range of vendor and artist booths from Germany and abroad in Mannheim. Our friends from E.M.P., Asmodee and The Walking Dead German Webfanside will also have a booth as well as Walker Stalker featured artists Scott Spillman and tattooist Chris 51 with his team.

We can hardly imagine a Walker Stalker Con without our precious volunteers. They support our local organization team and therefore they are an important part of our event. In return, they will have to work long shifts ;-), will get a look behind the scenes of Walker Stalker Con and they will get to know many new people. We have been told, that great friendships have been made at other Walker Stalker Cons.
Volunteers do not only support us, but especially all attendees of Walker Stalker Con, so - YOU! They will be the first point of contact for all your questions and problems - no matter if it is at the Will Call area when picking up your wristband/convention pass, around the panel stage area, at the photo ops or at the autograph booths.
Volunteers will be wearing red Walker Stalker VOLUNTEER shirts so that you can spot them more easily.
Visitors with physical or mental disabilities will receive additional help by our Disability & Accessibility Service Team. The staff of this team will be wearing green Walker Stalker DISABILITY SERVICE TEAM shirts.
All volunteers will support us because they enjoy it and , like you, they want to witness a great weekend with new experiences. We therefore ask all attendees to follow the instructions of the volunteers and treat them exactly as you would like to be treated yourself: friendly and with respect.
At this point, we would like to thank all volunteers in advance for joining the convention with your time, joy and motivation.


Have you given any thoughts about your shoes for Walker Stalker Con in Mannheim yet? No? Then here is some food for your thoughts. Your feet will appreciate comfortable shoes!
Be prepared to walk a lot over the weekend - yes, we really mean a lot of walking and standing. High heels are certainly not a good idea.
What are the typical walking ways during the convention?
The first route we can think of is your way from the tram or parking lot to the main entrance of the Maimarkt area at Xaver-Fuhr-Straße. Then the walk to Will Call and from there to the convention hall.
To visit all vendor and artist booths you have to walk a "few" meters again and then you still have not been to the guest booths or photo ops. In short, whether it is Will Call, the vendor and artist booths, our food truck market, photo ops, autograph booths or going to a panel; all together you are probably going to walk a long distance over these days.
Remember: "These boots are made for walking!"
A detailed site plan is soon to be released.



A photo op is a professional and rapidly moving photo shoot! To ensure that everybody´s photo can be taken, please listen carefully for special instructions for each celebrity guest and to prompts given by the staff in the room.
Your photo op is not a meet & greet and not a signing session. It is not possible to hand gifts to the guest in the photo op room. If you have a gift for a guest, please hand this over at the respective guest booth.
Please prepare yourself for your photo op in advance! This helps the photographer as well as the guest. If you would like a specific pose, bring a photo of it - for example on your mobile phone - to your shoot to avoid delays in the photo op processes.
Glasses often glare or make it very difficult for the photographer to see if you blinked, so please try to remove them if possible. If you cannot remove them, please be sure to try and tilt the glasses down away from the lights.
Our photographers watch for blinks, however, sometimes they are missed. When you pick up your print and a blink is noticed, please let us know immediately to ensure the guest is still in the room and we will put you back in for a retake.
Please be respectful of the celebrity guests and other fans in line. Keep hands above the waist. There is absolutely no kissing the guests or asking to be kissed by them. Attempting to kiss a guest may result in the loss of your photo op without a refund.
Personal photo or video recordings are not allowed in the photo op room.
Have your photo op card out and ready before you enter the room, also remove all purses, jackets or items you do not want in the photo. You can place your belongings on a table provided inside the photo op room.
After your photo op: Simply follow the brightly colored tape stripe on the floor at the photo op room exit. It will lead you to the print pickup area where you print will be handed to you in about 45-60 seconds. Once you have your print, you do not need to proceed to any more lines at the print pickup area unless you have a photo op Add-on such as a digital download or additional print. Please take your add-on ticket to the print station attendant to have your add-on fulfilled.
