Ticket booking for people with disabilities

Admission is currently free for all spectators at HfS events. Tickets (and accompanying tickets) can be reserved online in our ticket shop ten days before the first date of a performance series. For internal and specialised audiences, ticket links are sent out three weeks in advance - please contact the respective departments or the press office if you have any questions.

Tickets can be collected from the box office from one hour to 30 minutes before the start of the performance. Our evening service staff will be happy to help you. Unfortunately, there is no advance booking office beyond the online shop and the box office.
