GUIDED TOURS THROUGH THE FESTSPIELHAUS
You stand in the legendary orchestra pit, look at the gigantic stage machinery, inspect the auditorium and the foyer – no problem during a guided tour. However, these glimpses behind the scenes cannot be granted during the actual Festival season: from the beginning of the rehearsals to the last performance, this guided tour cannot take place.
Guided tours are possible outside of the Festival season, but it is not to be expected that they take place regularly. In addition, a planned tour can be cancelled at short notice if there are installations of technical facilities and conversions taking place in the Festival Hall.
From 30 August to 31 October 2017, guided tours will be offered at the following times: 10 am, 11 am, 2 pm and 3 pm.
Starting in November 2017, a guided tour takes place every day, beginning at 2 pm.
At the present the viewing of the stage is not possible.
From 27 November to 5 December 2017, no guided tours are possible.
We would ask groups (from 12 persons up to a maximum of 50 persons) to register in principle, but we also strongly urge individuals to inquire as to whether a visit to the Festival Hall is possible on the desired date.
