Accessibility

With its architecture, the Haus der Berliner Festspiele is one of Berlin’s listed buildings of postwar modernism. Despite the guidelines and restrictions this imposes, we endeavour to offer all visitors access as free from barriers as possible. For this, we continue to develop the necessary provisions.

Please note that the Haus der Berliner Festspiele is currently undergoing renovations. As a result, some measures are still being realised.

Information for Persons with Limited Mobility

The Haus der Berliner Festspiele at Schaperstraße 24 has barrier-free, step-free access to the foyer and to the auditorium on the ground floor. The upper foyers as well as the side stage are accessible via a lift. Due to construction, there is currently no paved access to the garden. All access doors are open during events. Our staff is happy to provide you with support at any time.

A toilet for all genders as well as for people with limited mobility is located on the ground floor on the left-hand side of the entrance to the main stage.

There are four places designated for wheelchair users in the auditorium that can be reached without steps. Unfortunately, the Haus der Berliner Festspiele does not have its own stock of wheelchairs to lend out. For safety reasons as well as due to the fixed seats, walking aids and zimmer frames may not be set down in the auditorium. You are welcome to leave these at our cloakroom.

Information for People with Hearing Loss

Unfortunately, the Haus der Berliner Festspiele does not currently have an induction loop system. Some events are presented with German or English subtitles. Please inform yourself of the opportunities on the respective event page. You can filter by events with subtitles in our programme list.

Information for Persons with Visual Impairment

Due to the ongoing renovations, a visitor guidance system with markings has not yet been finished. We ask you for your understanding. Assistance dogs may be brought along throughout the entire building. The elevator in the building features tactile signs.

(Accessible) Parking Spaces

Public parking spaces are located on Schaperstraße. Access to the Haus der Berliner Festspiele via the main entrance as well as via the side stage from the parking areas is barrier-free. As the parking areas do not have any parking spaces especially for persons with disabilities, it is possible to park briefly in front of the entrance to the side stage in order to allow persons with limited mobility to get out or get in. This is also possible for taxis.
