By public transport

Admission ticket = transport ticket

Your ticket to any event at the Staatstheater Nürnberg also covers your fare for return trip to and from the venue on the day of the performance. The ticket is valid on all services operated by the VGN (covering the entire transport network, 2nd class rail travel, surcharge-free trains) beginning 4 hours before start of performance and ending at close-down of transportation services. The VGN combo ticket rules apply. The admission ticket or the Print@Home ticket covers free use of public transport between the hours stated above. Your booking confirmation is not accepted as a ticket for travelling.

To plan your journey to and from the venue on the VGN transport network, you may wish to use the following online portals:

Opernhaus and Schauspielhaus

Take Underground lines U2/U21 and U3 to “Opernhaus”, from where there is direct access to the Opera. The Schauspielhaus with the Kammerspiele and the 3. Etage is located between Richard-Wagner-Platz and Karl-Pschigode-Platz only a few metres from the station.


Take Tram 8 from the main train station or Bus 36 from Plärrer in the direction of Doku-Zentrum. Get off at “Meistersingerhalle”.

By car


There are a limited number of spaces available in the “Parkhaus Theater” situated between the Opernhaus and Schauspielhaus. Patrons can park there for a discounted flat fee of €4.00 by pressing the Theater button at the barrier when driving in. The ticket can be paid for at the machine either immediately or when leaving the car park. It is available from one hour prior to the performance and can be paid for up to approx. three hours after the end of the performance.

On the other side of the Frauentorgraben and within walking distance of the Opern-/Schauspielhaus is the Parkhaus Sterntor carpark. Visitors to the Staatstheater can park here for 4.00 €, with each car’s number plate being automatically registered upon entry. The parking fees have to be paid at the machine before leaving the carpark. After you have entered your plate number, the normal price for the respective parking duration is initially displayed. The theatre admission ticket must then be scanned in order to receive the theatre rate. This also works with an e-ticket on your smartphone. After the ticket has been scanned, the fee is reduced to the flat theatre rate of 4.00 €. After payment – which is possible until approximately eight hours after the beginning of the performance – you will be able to leave the carpark within the next few minutes.

The Meistersingerhalle has sufficient parking. Your car’s number plate is scanned as you enter, and this is used to automatically determine the duration of your parking period. Visitors enter their plate number on the touchscreen-operated machines for payment. Further information on parking at the Meistersingerhalle can be found on the City of Nuremberg website.

Information on parking for people with reduced mobility is available here.
