General Safety And Hygiene Guidelines | Until 30. September 2021

Help us to make the evening at the theatre as safe as possible for everyone.

  • Please have your evidence ready according to the rule "vaccinated, recovered, tested" when you enter. A negative test-result is only required for children from the age of 6. Please also have an identity document, such as a passport or student ID, ready for children in any case.
  • It is compulsory to wear a mouth-nose protection in the entire building, even during performances. For your own safety, we recommend wearing an FFP2 mask. Only children up to the age of 6 do not need to wear a mask.
  • We urge you not to change your seat.

  • Antigen tests: valid for 48 hours for children from the age of 6 to the age of 12, valid for 24 hours for persons over 12 years of age
  • Antibody test: valid 90 days
  • Please note that all tests must be taken by an authorisation (e.g. test centre, hospital, flu checkbox, pharmacy or doctor's surgery). So-called living room antigen tests may not be accepted.
  • A Corona test passport for schoolchildren (Ninja-Pass) is valid in Vienna as proof of an authorisation and therefore as an entry test. (with the validity period corresponding to the age of the pupil and the type of test (PCR or antigen)).

Our websites are updated regularly and adapted to the measures currently in force by the Austrian federal government. Since there are unfortunately also short-term adjustments due to changes in the regulation, we ask you to inform yourself again about the applicable regulations shortly before your visit to the theater.

Safety And Hygiene Precautions (Ventilation And Disinfection)

State-of-the-art ventilation

The VBW theaters have modern systems for room ventilation. These are 100% fresh air systems. The air in the room is generated outdoors, filtered, conditioned and brought into the auditorium via the floor and extracted through the ceiling. This ensures (even before COVID-19) the supply of pure conditioned outside air. Both the ventilation frequency and the air exchange rate were increased. 36m3 of air is exchanged per visitor. In addition, the shock ventilation is activated in the rear spectator area, which enables the exchange of 45m3 per hour per person. Our filters are exchanged at regular intervals.

Continuous surface disinfection

During the routine cleaning of the venues, both areas such as Handrails, door handles, railings etc. as well as complete open spaces such as floors are disinfected.

Before and after the theatre performance


To avoid crowds, the VBW open their theatres one hour before the start of the performance. The auditorium is also open to you at this point.

We ask you to support us in avoiding waiting situations in cloakrooms, toilets etc. by coming to the theatre early.

Late entry:

Please note: There is currently no late entry to the performance for any of the VBW houses! If there is a break, you can, of course, take your seats in the second half.

Collection of contact data (Contact Tracing)

For reasons of contact tracing, tickets can only be sold with your contact details. We ask for your understanding. The collection and use of your data is of course in line with the GDPR. It is only accessed when the need arises.

The name of the ticket purchaser will be noted on all tickets.

In the case of a Corona cluster, the ticket purchaser must be able to announce who attended the performance at the request of the Sanitätsdirektion Wien. Please note this also when passing on cards!
