We are inclusive

We want people with disabilities to be able to visit the Theater Spektakel and to attend performances, eat, drink and meet with friends without encountering any barriers and obstacles. We are not quite there yet, but things are moving forward. We are pleased with the implementation of the following measures over the course of the past years which facilitate overall accessibility for disabled visitors. This has been made possible due to valuable input of our inclusion advisory board as well as generous support of the foundation «Denk an mich».

For visually-impaired

The tactile models installed at the main entrances helps visually-impaired visitors to find their way around the festival site.

For the hearing-impaired

Suitable productions are offered with descriptive surtitles or with translation into sign language. Performances with sign language are marked with the official icon in the programme.

For people with restricted mobility

The entire festival site as well as all venues, restaurants and bars are accessible for people with restricted mobility. All venues are equipped with wheelchair places which can be booked in advance.

Additionally, there are three disabled restrooms – two of them with Euro-Key (near open-air stage Zentral) providing appropriate sanitary facilities for people with special needs.

If you'd like to travel with the Theater Spektakel Boat, please make a reservation for assistance. 

Assisting people

The tickets for assistants to people with disabilities are free of charge. They need to be reserved in advance by phone 044 415 15 50 or contact@theaterspektakel.dont-want-spam.ch.

Programme information

The website of the Theater Spektakel is accessible to visually impared people.
