We are pleased about the positive signal from politics and we happily offer concerts in the Kölner Philharmonie again.
And we look forward to welcoming you! Join us at Köln Philharmonie, together we can experience concerts again in an atmosphere that we missed for a long time.
We’re continuing to try and offer you the safest and most enjoyable visit as Government restrictions are being relaxed. We ask all our visitors and staff to continue to wear face coverings in the building (and during the concerts until 14 October 2021), observe social distancing where possible and use the hand sanitiser stations around the building. That's why we initially maintain the mask requirement. Moreover we ask our visitors to show a negative Covid test result or proof of vaccination or recovery as a condition of entry in the Kölner Philharmonie.
The ventilation situation in the Kölner Philharmonie was recognized as very good by the DTHG (Deutsche Theatertechnische Gesellschaft).
Persons with coronavirus COVID-19 symptoms (cough, fever, cold, sore throat, general weakness, diarrhoea, impaired sense of smell or taste) are not allowed to enter the Kölner Philharmonie.
To protect all concert visitors, only persons with a negative test certificate or immunised persons with proof of immunisation are permitted to attend events at the Philharmonie.
We kindly ask you to present a preferably digital proof of immunisation or negative test certificate together with your ticket at the entrance. Please bring an official identification document with you.
The following are accepted as proof:
We do our best to avoid programme and line-up changes. However, despite all our efforts, the coronavirus pandemic may lead to changes in the programme and/or line-up at short notice in certain cases and – in the event of a change in the infection situation – possibly to concert cancellations at short notice. We therefore recommend that you visit koelner-philharmonie.de shortly before your visit to see if any changes have been made to the programme or course of the concert.
Admission to the Kölner Philharmonie begins 60 minutes before the concert starts.
During your stay in the Kölner Philharmonie, please wear a medical mouth-nose protection mask. In the seat, the mask can be removed during the concert.
Please keep a minimum distance of 1.5 metres from other guests when entering the Philharmonie and on all routes in the building.
Good ventilation prevents infections. Therefore the air conditioning system will be in full operation in the Kölner Philharmonie to supply fresh air.
