Subway Stop Platz der Luftbrücke

Subway Construction Alert!

If you’re to travel to ETB | IPAC by subway, be sure to add a few minutes to your travel time.

Unfortunately, the stop at PLATZ DER LUFTBRÜCKE for the subway line U6 going south towards Alt-Mariendorf is currently closed.

To get off at PLATZ DER LUFTBRÜCKE you need to go one stop further to Paradestrasse, take the train back – same platform, just the other side – and then get off at PLATZ DER LUFTBRÜCKE. It will take you five or six extra minutes.

We´re looking forward to seeing you at Fidicinstrasse!

Please Note Our Safety Guidelines

We are very happy to finally be able to perform for you again!

In cooperation with the health authorities, we have developed a comprehensive safety concept so that you can enjoy great performances at English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center without a second thought. The health of our audience, artists and staff is, of course, our highest priority. A number of things have changed: the performances are shorter, we have reduced the number of seats by more than a third and, unfortunately, we have closed our bar in the lobby.

Please help us to implement our safety concept by noting the following points:

Tickets/Box Office:

  • Please book your tickets online.
  • Our box office opens at 7:30 pm.
  • Please pay without using cash as much as possible.
  • Bear in mind that only people from the same household may sit next to each other.
  • We are obligated to maintain a list of all of our visitors. This is why the information of all guests is collected over the course of online ticket purchases and at the box office.
  • The list of visitors includes the following information: first name and last name, complete address or email and telephone number.
  • We ask visitors who have had contact with someone infected with COVID-19 in the last 14 days or are displaying symptoms themselves to please stay at home.

When visiting English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Center:

  • Please maintain a distance of 1.5 meters from other audience members.
  • Please wear a mask during your entire visit until you are seated.
