Current information for the 2021/2022 season

Status: January 13th, 2022

For the time being, all concerts will take place as announced in our season program. As of November 24th, 2021, the 2G-plus rule will apply to admission throughout Bavaria.

To the framework concept in our concert hall:

The conditions for attending our concerts are regulated by the current Infection Protection Measures Ordinance:

  • Proof: The "2G-plus rule" applies in our case from Nov 24th, 2021 (depending on the hospital traffic light): for a concert visit, you must present proof of vaccination or proof of recovery (older than 28 days, younger than 90 days), as well as a negative result of a rapid antigen test (valid 24h) or PCR test (valid 48h). The additional test can be replaced by a booster vaccination (valid from the day of vaccination). Also, please do not forget a personal proof of identification.
  • Masks: An FFP2 mask must be worn in the hall and also at the seat during the concert.
  • Distancing: We are currently only allowed to play with 25% capacity of our available seating space. Minimum distances of 1.5 m must be observed.
  • Checkroom: We ask that you leave your wardrobe at the main entrance as usual. Please keep the recommended distance of 1.5 m here as well.

In case of any signs of illness, we ask you to refrain from attending the concert. Please adhere to the general hygiene rules (distancing, sneezing etiquette, regular hand washing, etc.) as well as to the signs and instructions of our staff. Please use the elevators in the house only if you have limited mobility. Only 2 people at a time can use the elevator at most per ride.

  • Concert introductions: We are very pleased to be able to offer you our popular concert introductions again. These begin one hour before each concert (7 p.m. or 4 p.m.). The foyer of the hall will open at 6:30 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. (if the concert begins at 5 p.m.).
  • Gastronomic offer: The gastronomy in the hall is not open.
  • Underground car park and shuttle bus: Due to renovation work, unfortunately not all parking spaces in the underground car park will be available until mid-December. We will again provide our free shuttle bus to and from the Georgendamm underground parking garage for travel to and from the concerts, and therefore cordially invite you to use it:
    Departure times from Georgendamm: 7:10 p.m. & 7:30 p.m. (and 4:10 p.m. & 4:30 p.m., respectively).
    After the concerts: there will be two buses back to the underground car park (at 10-minute intervals) as well as a concert bus to the ZOB and on to the P+R Heinrichsdamm and/or main train station.

We wish you a wonderful concert evening!
