Rush Hour Konzert
The anniversary season 2020/21 is kicking off! We begin the 200th anniversary celebration of the Konzerthaus on August 27th with the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Principal Conductor Christoph Eschenbach and Artist in Residence Anna Prohaska.
To meet the requirements of the Berlin Senate for containment of the coronavirus pandemic, we have made a few changes to the programme and to factors affecting your concert visit, about which we will inform you here.
The following changes initially apply to concerts from August until the end of October.
In dem zum Download bereitstehenden PDF haben wir die wichtigsten Informationen aus dem Schutz- und Hygienekonzept des Konzerthaus Berlin für unsere Gäste zusammengefasst.
Information on the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 as well as hygiene tips can be found on the website of the Robert Koch Institute.
Since we can only perform our concerts without a break until further notice, we have shortened the planned programmes to a length of about 60-70 minutes. We have also added new dates for selected concerts in order to welcome as many visitors as possible, despite the limited seating capacity.
In order to maintain social distancing measures for the audience, some concerts have been moved to larger halls.
Please note that we are currently unable to offer concert introductions or night-time talks. Instead you can find digital concert introductions and artist talks on our website.
In order to be able to track all visitor contacts, you currently can only purchase tickets by providing your contact details. Those purchasing several tickets are obliged to leave contact details for all the ticket users. Tickets will be available from 10 August at the visitor service, through our website or by telephone at 030 · 20 30 9 2101.
As we are unable to offer a box office in the foyer, our visitor service will remain open until shortly before the start of the concert for last-minute ticket purchases and for any queries.
Online you can only book double seats for all events. Single tickets are only available through the ticket hotline and the visitor service.
The Konzerthaus opens 30 minutes before the concert starts. Entrances and exits have been added; please follow our orientation plan and note that it is mandatory to wear masks.
To ensure that admissions are as quick and smooth as possible, our cloakrooms will remain closed for the time being. Please also note that we cannot provide refreshments before, during and after the concerts.
In order to comply with social distancing regulations during the concert, three seats will remain unoccupied between all double seats. In addition, we have removed every second row of seats.
This means you can remove your mouth and nose protection during the concert (after the hall doors have been closed).
The Konzerthaus Berlin has taken special hygiene measures, including disinfectant dispensers at all entrances, frequent cleaning of contact surfaces, etc.
We would like to ask visitors with chronic respiratory illnesses who are unable to wear mouth and nose protection to bear in mind that a concert visit represents an increased risk of infection.
If you have had contact with someone suffering from COVID-19 in the last 14 days or if you yourself suffer from an upper respiratory tract infection, we ask you to stay at home out of consideration for our musicians and other concertgoers.
Our lifts may be occupied by a maximum of two people and one lift attendant. It is recommended that you arrive on time for the concert. You will find markings on the floor in front of the elevators to ensure social distancing regulations.
