Online Only Auctions

What is meant by "Online Only"?

  • Online Only refers to so-called timed auctions. The auction takes place without an auctioneer and exclusively on the internet. Bids can be placed at any time before the end of the auction.


  • The exhibits are on display and can be viewed during the auction period in our premises in the 1st and 2nd courtyard.

Technical tips and tricks

We have listed a few more technical tips and tricks to ensure that nothing gets in the way of your online bidding experience and your success in the auction.

  • Make sure you have a good and stable internet connection (preferably wired).
  • VPN connections and company accesses can delay or prevent the loading of page content or the LIVE stream in certain situations due to their parameterisation.
  • Delayed display? Reload the auction platform, this sometimes works wonders.
  • Play it safe: Log in on a second device (tablet or smartphone) so that you can fall back on it in case of network problems. This should, if possible, be connected through another internet connection (e.g. an LTE/5G connection).
