Komische Oper Berlin

First of all: why "Komisch"? With the name "Komische Oper", founding father Walter Felsenstein draws on the immediacy and closeness to the people of the French Opéra comique, but also on the Berlin Komische Oper in Friedrichstraße at Weidendammer Brücke, which was destroyed in the war and whose artistic director Hans Gregor was inspired by similar ideas in 1905-1911 and called for an "art without convention, prejudice and artistic vanity".

Arrival by public transport

The Komische Oper Berlin can be easily reached on foot by regional train, S-Bahn and TRAM via Friedrichstraße station. The Brandenburg Gate is another S-Bahn station nearby. Both stations have lifts and escalators as well as a guidance system for the blind. Information on malfunctions can be found here.

By underground you can use the stations Unter den Linden, Stadtmitte and Mohrenstraße. News about malfunctions of lifts or escalators can be found here.

The nearest bus stop is Unter den Linden/Friedrichstraße.

Arrival by car

Entry address Friedrichstadtpassagen multi-storey car park
Jägerstraße 60

(Five minutes' walk from the audience entrance).

Three parking spaces for people with disabilities are available in front of the Opera House, to the left of the audience entrance at Behrenstraße 55-57. These can be used by holders of the blue parking permit. If these parking spaces are occupied, the next parking option is in the Friedrichstadtpassagen multi-storey car park.


The main entrance to the opera house can only be reached via a few steps, the ground-level entrance is via the stage entrance. This is located in Behrenstraße, to the right of the audience entrance, between the buildings of the Komische Oper Berlin and the Westin Grand Hotel. The way is marked with a wheelchair symbol and arrows.

The stage doorman will open the gate to the opera grounds for you. To the left of the door to the stalls is a bell, also marked with a wheelchair symbol. If you ring the bell, a member of the evening service will open the door and take you to your seat in the Great Hall.

If you are a user of a walker, we would like to point out that it is possible to leave your walker under supervision in our stalls.

The barrier-free toilet is located in the gallery near the stalls on the right, not far from the door through which you entered the opera house via the barrier-free entrance.

Seats for wheelchair users

The wheelchair spaces are located in the stalls, which are barrier-free. There is a wheelchair space on the left and right in rows 3, 6 and 8.The Komische Oper Berlin is a listed building dating from 1892 and therefore unfortunately has no lifts in the public areas. Therefore, it is currently not possible to reach the upper foyer barrier-free. We are pleased to announce that during the upcoming major renovation work, lifts will be installed from 2022 onwards so that every venue in the opera house will be accessible without barriers.
