As a HAU Hebbel am Ufer festival we are part of an institution that is always learning. We are working on making the programme, the theatres, and our work processes gradually more diverse and inclusive. To foster this development, we collaborate with external consultants in interdepartmental working groups in the fields of diversity, accessibility, and sustainability in order to actively shape the organisational culture. Currently, HAU is only partially accessible. On this page, you can find more information about each individual venue as well as information on the programme and what we offer in terms of accessibility.



We welcome any feedback to improve, raise awareness and further create offerings.

Please send us an email: or call us: +49 (0)30 259004-27


People with disabilities who are eligible to bring a carer (marked ‘B’ on the disability identity card) receive one ticket each for themselves and for their carer at a 50% discount.

We kindly request that people in wheelchairs notify us at least one day before the performance under +49 (0)30 259004-27 or at
