Underground car park at Augustusplatz
Opera-goers using the underground car park at Augustusplatz can park during all performances at a reduced rate:
- of €4.00 (€5,00 from July) if the parking ticket is purchased in advance at the visitors’ service,
- of €4.50 (€5,50 from July) if the parking ticket is purchased before the beginning of the performance or in the interval using the machines at the entrance to the underground car park.
- If you pay after the performance, the normal rate applies.
The preferential prices are valid two hours before and after each performance. We recommend buying your parking tickets in advance to avoid long queues at the ticket machines in the evening.
