Equal access to the theatre for all is important to us. We are trying very hard to make all areas in the Schaubühne more inclusive onstage as well as backstage, and at the same time we know that many things are not yet perfect. If you have any suggestions, we appreciate your feedback via our Ticket Hotline (+49 (0)30 89002023) or by email (
If you need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Visitors with walking disabilities and wheelchair users

Arrival by car

In the private street the Schaubühne offers two parking spaces for people with physical disabilities. These parking spaces can only be booked combined with Wheelchair Tickets or tickets for severely disabled persons. A disabled pass is also required for use.

The entrance to the parking spots is via the stage entrance in Cicerostraße. To open the barrier to the parking spaces, please ring the bell at the entrance. The parking spaces are not monitored. The Schaubühne accepts no liability for any damage or theft, unless in case deliberate negligence on part of the Schaubühne or one of its employees or representatives.

Blind and visually impaired visitors

We regularly have performances with audio description for blind and visually impaired visitors. The performances are marked in the programme and also listed on this page. The audio description starts one hour before the performance with a tactile tour in the auditorium and in the backstage area. You have the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the stage and some characteristic costume parts and props. You will then be given an audio receiver in the auditorium, the use of which will be explained to you. Afterwards the audio introduction to the play and production will begin.

If you like to take part in the audio tour, please register with the evening staff one hour before the start of the performance. If you attend the performance directly, please arrive 20 minutes before it begins so that the evening staff can take you into the auditorium and familiarise you with the audio reception equipment. If you have any questions or comments, please call +49 (0)30 890020-130 or send an email to

Deaf and hard of hearing visitors

For hearing impaired, we have at least one performance per month with German surtitles. The performances are marked in the programme and also listed on this page.
