The Dusseldorfer Schauspielhaus is one of the oldest and most famous live theatres in Germany, presenting classical and contemporary stage plays. With a schedule that is continuously full, the Schauspielhaus presents many premieres thanks to its commitment to promote young authors. The theatre building has two separate stages, the Main Theatre with 760 seats and the Chamber Theatre with 300 seats. The smaller stage devoted to more experimental offerings. If you understand German, experiencing a play at the Dusseldorfer Schauspielhaus is a must as this is the premiere venue in the German-speaking world for fine drama and comedy.
- Walking up to the modernistic Schaulspielhaus structure, built in 1970 in central Dusseldorf, is a treat with curved white façade and three-dimensional architecture which give the building a direct relationship with the structures surrounding it.
- Experience the excitement of a premiere, which is easy to do considering opening nights occur between two and four times per month in the theatre’s two halls.
- Give your children a multicultural experience by attending a production at the theatre’s satellite location, das Junge Schauspielhaus, located at Münsterstraße 446, Dusseldorf, which specializes in plays for young people.
Located behind the popular Hofgarten Park in central Dusseldorf, the Dusseldorfer Schauspielhaus is found at Gustaf-Gründgens-Platz 1, a walk of about 10 minutes from the city’s Hauptbahnhof. Local S-Bahn and U-Bahn transportation lines make the theatre readily accessible to all neighbourhoods in Dusseldorf. The main train station is on a major German railway line, connecting the city via Intercity Express (ICE) trains to many destinations throughout Europe. The city is also served by Dusseldorf International Airport, which has flights to many major European cities as well as destinations in North America, Asia, and Africa.
