Excluded from this are claims for damages resulting from injury to life, limb, health or from the breach of essential contractual obligations, as well as liability for other damages that are based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the organizer, his legal representatives or vicarious agents. Essential contractual obligations are those whose fulfillment is necessary to achieve the objective of the contract.

(2) In the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations, the organizer is only liable for the contractually typical, foreseeable damage if this was caused simply by negligence, unless it is a matter of claims for damages resulting from injury to life, limb or health.
