Berliner Ensemble increases seating capacity

We are pleased to announce that due to the current regulations for cultural events in Berlin, we are allowed to increase the seating capacity in the auditorium! As of now, the current capacity will be 75% of the available seats at Großes Haus and Neues Haus. This regulation is valid until 20 August 2021.

Attendance at a performance is only possible with a negative Covid 19 test result valid on the day of the performance or a certificate of complete vaccination or proof of convalescence.

The health of our guests and staff is very important to us. Therefore, please pay attention to our protective and hygienic measures for your visit to the Berliner Ensemble.



"The actors alone are reason enough to visit the Berliner Ensemble currently. Artistic Director Oliver Reese has gathered an acting company that is among the best in the country."
