For the concerts in the "Cinello" and "Allez hop" cycles, we ask all concertgoers to remove their shoes, as the hall is carpeted for seating. Shoe racks are available in the Berio Hall foyer. During the winter months, we recommend bringing slippers or thick socks.
Jackets, coats, larger bags, backpacks, helmets and umbrellas must be left at the checkroom. For the "Cinello" and "Allez hop" cycles, either a small backpack or a bag can be taken into the hall.
At the cycle "Cinello" the checkroom is free of charge. At all other children's and youth concerts (except »sound:chat« and »Vorhören!«) there is a reduced checkroom rate (€ 1,-).
At our concerts in the "Cinello" and "Allez hop" cycles, baby carriages can be parked in the large checkroom or directly in front of the Berio Hall in designated areas.
Changing tables are located in the ladies' and men's toilets in the large checkroom hall. There will also be an additional changing table set up in the Berio Hall foyer during our "Cinello" concerts.
Food and drinks
We ask that you do not bring food or drink into the concert halls. Water bottles for children are allowed at our "Cinello" and "Allez hop" concerts.
All concertgoers, regardless of age, must purchase their own ticket. If you are bringing a baby (< 1 year), please pick up a ticket (free of charge) at the Ticket & Service Center. For conceptual reasons, a separate accompanying person is recommended for each child at "Cinello".
