Is it safe to go to the theatre? Yes, if we observe some rules.
we are happy that we can open our doors to audiences again. By now we have all become familiar with the general hygiene and physical distancing rules and we ask you to comply with them in our theatre. Besides this, we have developed comprehensive protective measures to enable you to enjoy a safe and relaxed visit to the Deutsches Theater. By showing each other consideration, we want to protect the health of everyone, both in front of, behind and on the stage. We look forward to welcoming you!NEWS
On September 11, the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe updated the version of its hygiene concept for Berlin's cultural institutions. We are implementing this concept step by step at the Deutsches Theater Berlin from October 1 and will begin with the Kammerspiele. For performances at the Deutsches Theater, the new regulations will be introduced from November 2.TICKET PURCHASES
We recommend that you buy tickets online. You can reserve concessionary tickets online here. You can purchase tickets on-site at two ticket offices where physical distancing is in place. Reserved tickets must be collected up to 30 minutes before the start of the performance. For contact tracking, we are obliged to register the details of ticket purchasers, as well as the data of accompanying persons. Please also refer to our general terms and conditions
Please plan to be at the theatre well in advance of the performance to avoid queues. The foyers open one hour before the start of the performance. Entry and exit are based on the one-way principle through different doors. Please take the seat allocated to you on your ticket and follow the signposted routes. The admission staff are happy to help if you have any questions.MASKS ARE REQUIRED
Mouth and nose protection must be worn throughout the theatre until the performance begins. You can remove it when you are in your seat at the beginning of the performance. We ask you to wear mouth and nose protection again for the final applause. If you have forgotten to bring mouth and nose protection, it is compulsory to purchase a mask from the ticket office. If you cannot wear a mouth and nose cover due to a chronic illness, we ask you to present a medical certificate upon admission.DISTANCING
Every second row in the theatre is expanded or blocked. By reducing the number of bookable seats to around a quarter of the regular number of seats, a distance of 1.5 m is guaranteed in the theatre auditoriums. Please keep this distance to others everywhere else in the theatre. Consecutive seats can be given to families, couples and people who live in one household (this applies to a maximum of six people). Most performances are played without a break.VENTILATION
The conversion of our ventilation systems ensures plenty of fresh air: for ventilation, only fresh outdoor air is fed into the auditoriums and used air is sucked away. In this way, the air in the room is completely renewed two to three times an hour.HYGIENE
Hand disinfectant dispensers are available for you at the entrance and in the toilets. Touched surfaces are regularly cleaned and disinfected.CLOAKROOM
To avoid contact, we ask you to take your coats into the auditorium if possible. Large bags and backpacks must be handed over to the cloakroom while observing physical distancing rules.GASTRONOMY
The bistro in the Spiegelfoyer remains closed. For visitors with seats in the stalls and the Kammerspiele, the bar is open. Visitors with seats in the lower or upper circle of the DT can use the drinks dispenser in the Rangfoyer. After the performance (except for premieres) the bar will remain open to the audience. The regulations for catering areas apply: there is a reception area at the entrances to the bar, from where you will be guided to a free place and served at the table. There you can remove your mouth and nose covering. Your contact details as well as seating and length of stay in the bar will be recorded.CAUTION
The health of all our visitors and staff is important to us. If you feel sick or have flu symptoms, please stay at home. People who have had contact with COVID19 sufferers in the 14 days prior to the performance are also not allowed to attend events.
Please note that the rules are subject to change at short notice. We will keep you updated daily on our website, via social media and our newsletter.
