  • How is ventilation done in the opera house?

    The air conditioning and ventilation systems for the auditorium of the opera house are able to guarantee an hourly air turnover of 80,000m³ per hour, which corresponds to around 80m³ per hour per person when the hall is fully occupied.

    The foyer areas are also air-conditioned and ventilated. Events in the concert foyer are limited to 70 visitors.

    Since the air humidity affects the spread of the aerosols, the fresh air is blown in via floor outlets and discharged upwards, regardless of the outside conditions, with around 50% humidity (as recommended according to the evaluation of studies).

  • How is ventilation done in the Musikalischen Komödie?

    The air conditioning and ventilation systems for the auditorium of the Musikalische Komödie are able to guarantee an hourly air turnover of 28,000 m³ per hour, which corresponds to 60 m³ per hour per person in a fully occupied hall.

    The foyer areas and the Venussaal are also air-conditioned and ventilated.
