We welcome your feedback: What suggestions do you have? What did you notice (positively or negatively), what didn’t work for you or even prevented you from visiting the Kammerspiele? What would you like to see or do you have any questions about your visit to the Münchner Kammerspiele?

Audio Description & Tactile Guidance

Audio description means hearing description. It is a service for blind and visually impaired people. Speakers use headphones to describe what is happening on stage live in explanatory language. We offer audio description in cooperation with „Hörfilm München – Barrierefreie Filme“.

The stage set, costumes and props can be felt here. We offer performances with AD for visually impaired and blind viewers.

Guide Dogs

Guide dogs are welcome, please indicate when purchasing tickets if you are bringing a dog to the performance as we will reserve an extra seat. For the sake of the dogs, we would like to point out that in some scenes of the performances stroboscopic effects and very loud music will be played.

Hearing impaired / Deaf

Offer for deaf and hearing-impaired viewers

We do not have an induction system at the box office.

We use the D2020 wireless equipment from Sennheiser for performances in the Schauspielhaus to support people with hearing impairments.

This equipment includes both headset receivers and mobile induction loop receivers to ensure that each participant can receive the sound in good quality.

The headband receivers are ergonomically designed and comfortable to wear. They are simply placed on the ear cup, automatically adjust to the shape of the head and hang independently due to their light weight. These receivers allow participants* to hear the sound directly through built-in headphones. They offer good sound quality and filter functions to minimize distracting background noise. The volume can be individually adjusted to meet the needs of each listener.

Mobile induction loop receivers provide an additional way to receive sound wirelessly, especially for people with hearing aids. These receivers have a plug-in induction loop that can be paired with the hearing aid or a special headset with an induction loop receiver. Through this induction loop, the sound is transmitted directly into the hearing aid or headphones, ensuring optimal sound quality for individuals with hearing problems.

Sign Language Interpretation

For deaf viewers, we offer selected performances with German sign language interpretation (DGS).
