Evening Box Office

The evening box office opens one hour prior to the performance.

Note for English surtitles

We offer many shows with Englisch surtitles. In order to be able to read the surtitles well, we recommend seat row 12+ in the Schauspielhaus and seat row 8+ in the Kammerspiele.


The performances of a month go on sale on the 1st of the previous month. If this day is a Sunday or public holiday, tickets will go on sale the day before. Subscribers for the 2021/2022 season can continue to purchase their tickets exclusively one day before the start of the advance sale. Please note that our seating capacity is reduced.

Ticket reservations

We reserve tickets for 14 days, at the latest until three days before the performance. Unpaid tickets go back to the free sale. Only paid tickets can be deposited at the box office.

Ticket exchange and refund in case of performance cancellation*

In the event of a performance cancellation, you have the option of either exchanging the tickets you purchased for that performance for tickets for another performance (subject to availability) or having the ticket price refunded. This applies to all tickets purchased directly through our theater box office or webshop. If tickets are purchased through another retail outlet, please contact them.
For an exchange, please contact the theater box office. If you would like a refund, please use the form below, which you can fill out directly on your computer, save and email to the Theater Box Office. Alternatively, you can send the form to us as a letter or fax:
