For their 14th edition, the KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen are pursuing the motto "culture for everyone" more firmly and are actively promoting a culture of participation and accessibility.

As many people as possible should have access to the festival's events and the KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen are working on breaking down barriers where they exist. We also recognize that we cannot accommodate all accessibility needs. In order to further break down barriers, we also depend on your feedback. Please contact us at or call us on +49 511 168 33 811. We look forward to your questions and suggestions!

On the detail pages of the productions in the programme we provide individual information about the duration of performances, language and surtitles, the use of special effects (especially strobe lights) and the accessibility of the venues.


Ticket purchase

Wheelchair spaces are designated online in the seating plans for individual productions. For these productions, tickets can be purchased online.

For other productions, especially those with free seating, we ask all people with disabilities who can provide appropriate identification to purchase tickets at one of the local advance ticket offices, e. g. Künstlerhaus Hannover. Admission for an accompanying person is free of charge.

If you require a wheelchair space or have special needs, please contact us by phone on +49 511 168 33 811 or by email at for detailed arrangements.



All venues, with the exception of the Arne Jacobsen Foyer, provide barrier-reduced access. However, due to the unique productions, the requirements and conditions of the individual venues may change depending on the production. We try to describe the conditions as best as possible on the individual pages of the productions in the programme. Assistance dogs are welcome in all venues. In this case, please provide a relevant certificate of this.

If you are unsure or have further questions about accessibility, please contact us by phone on +49 511 168 33 811 or by email at and we will do our best to deliver the best possible experience.

If you need assistance on site, please feel free to contact the ticket office or admission staff.



For the programme of the KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen 2022, we consulted with experts from the communities of blind people and people with low vision as well as deaf people and people who are hard of hearing. Even though we naturally want to invite everyone to all of our events, we have put together a selection of low-barrier-events  to make it easier for you to find your way around:
