Which legal regulations currently apply?

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is only possible to attend the event in accordance with the Baden-Württemberg state Covid ordinance applicable at the time of the event. The ordinance also regulates which entry and documentation requirements apply to guests of the events (e.g. 3G, 2G, or 2G plus).

Persons who do not comply with the state ordinance applicable at the time of the event are not permitted to enter the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden.


Entry requirements (as of November 24, 2021)

  • At the present time, Alert level II of the current state ordinance applies in Baden-Württemberg. Guests who can show proof that they have been vaccinated or have recovered are permitted to enter the Festspielhaus.
  • In addition, a negative test result of a rapid antigen test (not older than 24 hours) must be presented.
  • On the Festspielhaus forecourt is the "Test Center Dr. Kaiser", where rapid antigen tests are carried out. An appointment reservation is recommended at: https://portal.schnellteststra...
  • The Festspielhaus digitally checks the vaccination and recovery certificates. Entry with the "yellow vaccination pass" is not possible. The state ordinance stipulates proof using a QR code via app or in paper form. These are checked at the entrance together with a valid photo ID.
  • Persons up to and including 17 years of age, such as schoolchildren, are exempted from the 2G plus rule. They are to present their school ID, for example, at the entrance. Guests who are unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons (proof required) can be admitted with a negative rapid test result.
  • For pregnant and breastfeeding women, exemptions only apply until December 10, 2021, since a vaccination recommendation from the Standing Committee on Immunization (STIKO) will have been in effect for three months from this date.

Please inform yourself about the current requirements well in advance of your visit at www.baden-wuerttemberg.de. A short-notice change to the Covid ordinance does not entitle you to return your tickets.


Regulations in the Festspielhaus

  • According to the applicable ordinance, it is mandatory to wear a medical mask throughout the entire Festspielhaus, including during the entire performance and the breaks in the hall. An exception only applies to the consumption of food and drinks.
  • The Festspielhaus opens 90 minutes before the start of the event. We recommend arriving well in advance to allow enough time to check the documents.
  • Guests who are unable to wear a medical mask for health reasons must present the original of a medical certificate in addition to the above-mentioned documents. You can only attend the performance without a medical mask if you have such a certificate.
  • At alert level II of the state ordinance, seat utilization in theaters and concert halls is generally reduced to 50 percent of capacity.
