Thank you very much!
In accordance with the current COVID-19 regulations, we are again allowed to occupy 100% of the theatre halls.
Official COVID-19 regulations require us to personalise all tickets so that contacts can be traced as quickly as possible in the event of a suspected case of COVID-19. Unfortunately, we cannot issue tickets if you do not provide your contact details.
You are welcome to buy tickets for your companion(s) together with your own in the 2021/22 season. We just need the names and contact details (email address, telephone number or address) for everyone in your group. It is your responsibility to obtain your companions’ consent before sharing their contact details. The data collected in this way will only be passed on if required by the authorities.
In line with official COVID-19 safety provisions, tickets cannot be transferred to another person unless requested in advance and the personalisation is adapted accordingly.
WEARING AN FFP-2 MASK IS MANDATORY FROM THE AGE OF 6. FROM 6 TO 14 YEARS OLD, THIS CAN BE REPLACED BY MOUTH AND NOSE PROTECTION.
Please Collect Your Ticket in Advance
We kindly ask you to pick up your ticket(s) at one of our box offices in advance of the performance. This way you are helping to prevent large crowds of people and long queues in front of the evening box office.
In all venues, including the Kasino and Vestibül, numbered seats are offered, there is no free choice of seats. Our standing places are unfortunately not available.
Please only take the seat assigned to you. Changing seats is not permitted.
Your Visit AT THE THEATRE
When you visit a performance, you do so on your own responsibility. Performances may only be attended by persons who are cmpletely free of the specific symptoms of COVID-19. Visitors presenting any symptoms of COVID-19 will be turned away at the door or asked to leave, despite having a valid admission ticket.
Admission & Entrance
We kindly ask all visitors to present a form of ID at the door. Only persons with tickets bearing their own name will be allowed admission into the venue. When entering the building, proof of "cured-vaccinated" must be presented at the entrance:
RECOVERY: Confirmation of a roof of recovery, a medical confirmation or a separation notice that a COVID-19 illness was overcome that was not more than 6 months ago.
VACCINATED: Confirmation of COVID-19 vaccination with complete immunisation from the 2nd vaccination or, for single dose vaccines, confirmation from the 22nd day after receipt for the period of 270 days. Only vaccines licensed in the EU will be accepted. Those who cannot be vaccinated and have not recovered can bring a PCR test instead of the 2G detection (48 h). The prerequisite is the additional presentation of a confirmation issued by a doctor authorized to practice independently in Austria or the EEA.
Please note that the controls at the entrances will take some time. Admission to our venues begins 30 minutes before the start of the performance. As usual, the box office is open for you one hour before the start.
Specific entrances are designated for specific sections of the auditorium in the Akademietheater and Burgtheater. Your entrance is indicated on your ticket. Please only use your allotted entrance to enter our venues. The evening box office also has an allotted entrance.
