Your visit


To save energy, as a municipal institution we are required to reduce the temperature in our venues to 19 degrees. Please bear this in mind when choosing your clothing when you come to the theatre. It is advisable to take a cardigan, jumper or scarf with you into the auditorium.

We hope for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you with us.

Opening hours

The theatre as well as the box office opens one hour before the performance starts.

The box office is opened Monday to Saturday from 11.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. 

For more practical information on the individual venues, for example how to get there, see Venues.

Visitors can expect an exciting look behind the scenes of the theatre. Once a month, the Theater und Orchester Heidelberg offers a public guided tour. The guided tour costs €5 (€3 reduced) per person and lasts one hour.

Groups of 10 or more people or 5th graders and above can make an individual appointment for a guided tour. This is only possible in conjunction with a performance.

Theatre buses

Since 2012, the Theater und Orchester Heidelberg has been offering a special service: the theatre bus. It takes you from the surrounding area to the Heidelberg Theatre – in a relaxed way and without the hassle of looking for a parking space.

The dates for trips in the current season are announced here and sent to all registered interested parties.

Tickets can be ordered from the Theater und Orchester Heidelberg, Service for Group Offers, and will be sent conveniently to your home together with the invoice.
On the journey you can expect an introduction to the play in question, which our dramaturges have recorded for you in advance.
You will be informed of the departure times before the respective performance.

What are you waiting for?

Barrier-free theatre

The Theater Heidelberg wants to make access to events possible for as many interested people as possible.

This includes, in addition to barrier-free access to the venues

  • Marguerre-Saal (stalls with a total of 5 barrier-free seats)
  • Alter Saal (stalls with a total of 3 barrier-free seats)
  • Zwinger 1 and Zwinger 3 (access via stair lift up to max. 225 kg)

in the new building on Theaterstraße, the theatre box office, the cloakrooms and sufficient sanitary facilities, which are designed to be accessible to the disabled.

At performances in the Marguerre-Saal, the Alter Saal and Zwinger 1, inductive hearing systems offer the possibility of improving the quality of hearing for hearing-impaired people. The electromagnetic waves of these induction loops can be received by suitable hearing aids (with T-coil). To do this, the hearing aid must be set to T-mode before the event begins.

To make the best use of this service, we recommend that you use floor rows 2 to 13 in the Marguerre-Saal and floor rows 1 to 7 in the Alter Saal.

If you have a hearing aid but do not know whether it has a T-coil, please consult your hearing care professional.

Content notes

Notes on sensitive content

Theatre wants to entertain, but it also wants to encourage a critical analysis of private or social conflicts. This includes thinking along, but also empathising. Because theatre is about change. In order to avoid viewers finding the content presented disturbing or even hurtful, we provide information on sensitive content in the content notes beforehand. This includes physical, mental or sexual violence, child abuse, war, auto-aggressive behaviour, suicide and discriminatory language. However, it is up to you whether you read the information before the performance or not.
