Visitor info

The health and safety of our visitors, performers and staff is our foremost priority. To ensure everyone’s well-being while at PACT, we have developed a comprehensive hygiene concept that implements the requirements of the Corona Infection Protection Ordinance (CoronaSchVO).



Therefore, for your own safety and the safety of others, please observe the following: 

Minimum distance: Please maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 m to others at all times. A fixed guided route (one-way system) and modified entrance and exit situations ensure that the minimum distance can be maintained throughout the building.

Face masks: You must wear a face mask that covers both your nose and mouth everywhere in the building. 

Hygiene and ventilation: We offer hand sanitiser for your usage at various points in the building. All spaces are regularly well-ventilated by our team.

Please stay at home if you show any signs of illness. In cases of doubt, we are forced to ask visitors to leave the building.

2GPlus rule (until January 31) for visitors over the age of 16: proof of booster vaccination; recovery (max. 3 months) after second vaccination; full vaccination (twice) and proof of test (no longer than 24h) plus ID card required  Please have your proof and ID ready at the entrance. 

The conditions of access for children are based on the current Corona Protection Ordinance on the date of the event. Please inform yourself in advance about supplementary regulations on the part of PACT.

We reserve the right to make changes. In this case, ticket buyers will be informed by e-mail before the event.

Contact data: For the purposes of contact tracing, we are required to collect the personal data of all visitors during the reservation process. This data is stored in accordance with data protection regulations and will be deleted after four weeks.

Cancellation of events: Due to the dynamic occurrence of infections, events may be cancelled at short notice. Should this be the case, we will inform you immediately. Tickets purchased in advance will be fully refunded.

Seating: Seats are carefully allocated to guarantee a social distancing between individual guests and groups (social bubbles). Your allocated seat is binding. Please do not swap seats. If you have special seating requirements due to a disability or need assistance to enter the auditorium, please contact us in advance. 

We look forward to welcoming you to PACT! If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us at

Thank you for your support and understanding!
