One for all!

Tickets

Severely disabled persons (Schwerbehinderte) may purchase tickets at the regular price. Prices for each performance can be found in our program overview. Attendants of severely disabled persons carrying a disabled ID marked »B« are eligible to receive a free ticket. Free tickets for attendants are also available for all normal reduced price tickets (except the »berlinpass« and »ClassicCard«).

Regular tickets can be purchased online. Please reserve or purchase free tickets for attendants by telephone (030) 47 99 74 00 or at the opera ticket desk at Unter den Linden 41. The opera ticket desk is wheelchair accessible. However, tickets deposited at the box office must be collected by an attendant due to stairs.

Disabled Parking

In front of the opera house there are three parking places for disabled persons. They are located to the left of the main entrance in Behrenstraße 55-57 and can be utilized with a blue parking permit (marked aG or BI). In case these sparking spaces are taken, the closest convenient parking spaces are located at Parkhaus Friedrichstadtpassagen.

Disabled Entrance

The main entrance to the opera house is only accessible over stairs. Entrance with a wheelchair is possible through the stage entrance. It is located in Behrenstraße between the Komische Oper building and the Westin Grand Hotel. The path is marked with an arrow and a disabled symbol.
The doorman will escort you into the opera house. Once inside, there is a ringer marked with a wheelchair symbol located to the left of the door leading to the Parkett. When you ring, a staff member will open the door and direct you to your place in the concert hall.

If you are using a walker, we would like to let you know that it’s possible to park the walker in our Parkett hallway where it will be kept safely for you.

Wheelchair spaces

Wheelchair spaces are found in the wheelchair accessible Parkett. The spaces are located to the right and left of rows 3, 6, and 8. These spaces are priced according to groups III and IV.

The Komische Oper Berlin is housed in an historically protected building from the year 1892 and unfortunately has no elevators in public areas. For this reason, the upper foyers are currently not wheelchair accessible. We are happy to announce, however, that elevators are planned for upcoming renovations. Starting in 2020, all viewing areas in the opera house will be wheelchair accessible.

Die Komische Oper Berlin ist ein denkmalgeschützter Bau aus dem Jahre 1892 und besitzt daher leider keine Fahrstühle im öffentlichen Bereich. Deswegen ist es derzeit nicht möglich, das obere Foyer barrierefrei zu erreichen. Wir dürfen Ihnen ankündigen, dass während der bevorstehenden größeren Sanierungsmaßnahmen ab dem Jahre 2022 Fahrstühle so installiert werden, dass jeder Veranstaltungsort im Opernhaus barrierefrei zugänglich sein wird.

Guide Dogs for the Blind

We welcome guide dogs for the blind. Please advise us in good time when reserving tickets (at least four weeks in advance) at the ticket office or call centre, stating explicitly that you will be bringing a guide dog.

Disabled Bathrooms

The disabled bathrooms are located near the Parkett on the right, not far from the door leading into the opera house from the disabled entrance.
