Hygiene concept Ratibor Theater 

(The concept will be updated accordingly in case of relaxation).

Our hygiene concept is based on tested, vaccinated and recovered attendees.

This means all staff, actors and musicians will be tested or vaccinated and audience members may attend the event with proof of testing, recovery or vaccination.

Proof for Visitors:

A theater staff member will check proof for those recovered, vaccinated and tested.


Written or electronic certification (as per paragraph 2 of the Berlin Senate Infection Control Ordinance) of a negative test result from a point-of-care (PoC) antigen test performed within the last 24 hours must be provided.


The guest must provide written or electronic certification (in accordance with paragraph 2 of the Infection Protection Ordinance) of a negative test result from a recent PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection that is not older than 24 hours. We ask guests to take a test before the visit (there are also very many places with uncomplicated testing and many spontaneous appointments nearby → see test-to-go.berlin ). For children, the test proof is valid from the age of 6.


As proof, the notice of a positive PCR test is possible. This is valid at the earliest 28 days after the test date and up to six months later. Likewise, a certificate from the public health department ordering isolation and a subsequent negative test result is possible as proof.

Proof of Vaccination:

Vaccinated individuals must provide proof of complete vaccination protection (2x vaccinated or 1xJohnson&Johnson vaccinated) - for example the regular (yellow) vaccination record or the form completed by the vaccination center.

We want to register the digital attendance documentation of the guests via the encrypted LucaApp or Corona-Warn-App in case of infection. Please install one of these apps on your cell phone beforehand ( luca-app.de/get-app OR https://www.bundesregierung.de/breg-de/themen/corona-warn-app). Spontaneous purchase of tickets at the box office and manual attendance documentation (slip of paper that will be destroyed after 4 weeks) are possible.

In general, the payment systems have been changed to cashless payment at the box office and cash with various terminals, cash payment still works.

The AHA rules of the federal government should be followed despite the proofs.
We therefore ask all visitors to wear a protective mouth-nose mask (current requirement FFP2-mask) if they cannot maintain the 1.50m distance to persons of another household (on narrower walkways, at the bar, at the cash desk, in the toilet area). On the seats you can take off your mask. So far, the rule for children with simultaneous FFP2-masks for adults is: children should wear medical masks from 6-14 years, from 14 years they should wear FFP2-mask.

The guests have fixed seats, we adjust the reservations in each case to the current conditions and pay attention to the appropriate regulations.
 At present, a maximum of 6 tickets can be ordered per booking. If you want to make a booking that includes more than 6 people, you should create several bookings to get the appropriate number of tickets.

We have already designed a working hygiene concept for the theater last year with the corresponding reconstruction and equipment measures under the regulations of the Senate's ordinances for indoor events and invested in comprehensive cleaning and infection control equipment. There were 30 hygiene UV LED modules installed throughout the theater and our air conditioning system was serviced again. The theater space (audience/technical area/bar/wardrobe/stage) is irradiated with the Hygiene UV LED modules before and after events when the theater is deserted, making it virus and bacteria free.

Our regularly tested ventilation system, fan, open windows and doors ensure constant air exchange in the room. The windows and doors are opened during the show according to the current specifications and a CO2 meter checks the air quality. The air conditioner cools the room comfortably if it is too warm and provides further movement of the air. Plexiglas walls are erected at the bar and for the box office area. Spacing tape is also used in the entrance area to indicate the recommended spacing of guests in the entrance. The posting of safety instructions or spacers to guide visitors and prevent infections serves as a guide for all guests. Two disinfection dispensers are available at the entrance, we advise thorough hand washing with soap according to hygiene regulations. Another disinfection dispenser will be available in the guest room.

Please note that measures may change in the near future according to infection incidence and regulations. We will adapt our concept accordingly.
