In order to attend the performance, you need the following documents:

  • Proof of a negative SARS-CoV-2 test result, issued by an officially approved or recognised testing station on the day of the performance,

Proof of a negative SARS-CoV-2 test result is not required by those who can present proof of vaccination as of the 15th day after the last vaccination or by those who have recovered from Covid (with a vaccination after six months where applicable). Only the vaccines approved by the EMA will be accepted. The proof of vaccination or recovery must be provided by the visitor concerned.

These documents will be checked on each performance day in the registration centre on the grounds of the Bürgerreuth open-air pool uphill from the Festspielhaus (behind the top visitors’ car park, addresse: An der Bürgerreuth 8, 95445 Bayreuth).
