We are committed to making your visit to our opera house as enjoyable as possible. If you have any accessibility requirements, we will try to assist you in every possible way.

On presentation of a severely handicapped ID with the letter “B”, visitors will receive a free ticket for an accompanying person in all price categories. Tickets can be booked by phone (+49 (0)30 20 35 45 55), e-mail or in person at the TicketBox next to the Staatsoper Unter den Linden. Please note that wheelchair spaces cannot be booked online. This is to prevent people who are not dependent on these places from buying them in advance, thus preventing wheelchair users from attending a performance.

The Staatsoper Unter den Linden has completely barrier-free access due to its excellent public transport connections (see HOW TO GET THERE). The underground car park on Bebelplatz offers disabled parking spaces and direct access to the opera house. On entering the car park between17:30 and 23:59, the maximum parking fee is € 7. To use this tariff, enter your parking ticket in one of the pay machines and the message »Theatertarif« will appear on the display. Press the button below and the reduced rate will be shown on the display. Please note that it is not possible to use the tariff if you enter the car park before 7:30 so it will not be shown on the display. TIP: If you pay the theatre tariff at the pay machine before the event, you can avoid unnecessary waiting after the show.

Wheelchair access can be gained at the main entrance to the Staatsoper Unter den Linden or via the underground car park, which takes visitors directly up to the opera house.

The Staatsoper is equipped with an elevator which stops on all levels from the basement to the third circle (left side).

Wheelchair accessible ladies’ and men’s toilets are located on the ground floor and on the second floor, all of which can be reached by lift.

In the stalls and all the circles there are spaces for wheelchair users available in various price categories for opera and ballet performances as well as concerts. The wheelchair spaces in Circle I, Circle II and on the left side of Circle III can be reached via a lift.
We would like to point out that the stalls are set on an incline to optimise viewing, so the floor slopes slightly for the wheelchair seats on the left and right in row 10. If you would prefer to be on level ground, we recommend the wheelchair places in the circles. 

Guide and assistance dogs are welcome at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden. Please inform us at the box office or in the call center when you reserve your tickets in good time if you wish to bring a guide or assistance dog, as only certain seats are suitable.

The Staatsoper Unter den Linden should be open to everyone! We cordially invite you to visit our house to be inspired and entertained. Holders of the Berechtigungsnachweis (“BN”) or a »Berlin-Tickets S« pay only €3 for the best available seats at the box office from 30 minutes before the performance begins. You can find more information about our discounts here.

For the hard of hearing, there is an induction loop for all seats.

Please note that our guided tours are NOT barrier-free.
