Your visit


Due to the energy crisis, 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.

Current hygiene regulations

  1. There is currently no obligation to wear mouth-nose protection at events of the Theater und Orchester Heidelberg. Nevertheless, we recommend that you continue to use mouth-nose protection indoors.
  2. How are you? If you yourself have symptoms of a respiratory infection or a raised temperature, or if you are in contact with a person infected with SARS-CoV-2, we ask that you recuperate at home - unfortunately, you will not be allowed to attend our performances.

We will inform you about changes to the applicable regulations here as well as via our publications and the theatre box office.

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.

Guided tours

Visitors can expect an exciting look behind the scenes of the theatre. 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.

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.
