Persons accompanying a disabled person with the annotation “B” in their identity card pay a reduced admission charge. Tickets for wheelchair users, mobility-impaired customers and their companions can only be booked by telephone or at the ticket office, not over the internet.
Persons with Impaired Hearing
At many of our events, hearing-impaired visitors can receive the spoken presentation directly to their hearing aid by induction loop, provided that their device supports this technology. They can also directly use the audio system (single-sided headphones, available from the box office). For many productions it is also possible to use this service for translations into other languages. The audio system was acquired with the kind support of our Friends’ Association.
People suffering from photosensitive epilepsy may find that (strobe) light and laser effects in the Sternensaal trigger epileptic fits or can cause impaired consciousness.
The artificial fog used in some of our events is not hazardous to health.
