Home > Service > Accessibility


We set great store on ensuring maximum accessibility for people with restricted mobility.


An external lift on the left flank of the Opernhaus brings people to the stalls and the dress circle. The barrier-free entrance to the building and a lift between the Kammerspiele and 3. Etage performance space on the 3rd floor mean that all three venues are accessible to disabled people. All viewing locations for wheelchair-bound visitors are on the ground floor.

Wheelchair spaces

The Opernhaus has four spaces for wheelchair users in the stalls. All three performance areas in the Schauspielhaus feature wheelchair space with appropriate signage. The main auditorium in the Meistersingerhalle can admit 12 wheelchair users. For precise information on the locations, please consult auditorium diagrams, ask at the box offices or phone +49-(0)180/1-344-276 (from Germany, landline 3.9 ¢/min.; mobile max. 42 ¢/min.). Please remember to order a wheelchair space when purchasing your ticket.

Barrier-free toilets

All venues feature barrier-free toilets. The Opernahaus has a dedicated toilet beside the cloakroom on the left side of the stalls. In the Meistersingerhalle the relevant toilets are outside the two halls. In the Schauspielhaus they are situated in the basement adjacent to the Kammerspiele, reachable by lift.

Induction loops

The Opernhaus, the Schauspielhaus and the Kammerspiele feature induction-loop technology. As audio quality fluctuates slightly depending on location, you are asked to mention your use of a hearing aid at the time of ticket purchase, so that we can advise you personally on how to get the best audio experience. There is no induction-loop facility on the 3rd floor.


In the following diagram the seats with limited or no induction-loop facilities are marked grey. Only the coloured seats offer ideal auditory conditions.


The induction loop in this venue is imperfect. We apologise for any inconvenience.


Induction-loop quality is high in rows 1, 2, 3, 8 and 10 and limited in rows 4, 5, 6 and 7. Please accept our apologies for this. Our box office staff in the Opernhaus and the Schauspielhaus are happy to advise you.



There is no barrier-free connection between the “Parkhaus Theater” and the Opernhaus, patrons with mobility issues are advised to use the car park on Richard-Wagner-Platz, which has four spaces for disabled users. Motorised access is via the Frauentorgraben in the direction of the Hauptbahnhof. The entrance to Richard-Wagner-Platz is located between the Opernhaus and the pedestrian-crossing traffic lights.
