Yearly Schedule

So what exactly are the festivals, exhibitions, programme series, special events and guest performances that make up Berliner Festspiele? In our Yearly Schedule, you can find the dates of our festivals and of those exhibitions, important events and guest performance that have already been confirmed.

We will update this list continually, so it’s worthwhile having a look at it now and then. Or you could subscribe to our newsletter – it will make sure that you don’t miss anything and help you plan your year with us!
