Your visit

We have put together a comprehensive public health protection plan, which aligns with FOPH (BAG) regulations in place.
In order to help protect yourself and others, we kindly ask you to observe the protective measures during your visit to the Opernhaus. Thank you in advance for your support.

From Zurich Main Station, either on the urban railway to Stadelhofen or on the number 4 tram (towars Tiefenbrunnen) to "Opernhaus".


Directly from the airport on the urban railway to Stadelhofen or Zurich Main Station and then the tram number 4 towards Tiefenbrunnen, you can get off directly at the stop "Opernhaus".

The Studiobühne is also located in the main building of the Opera House. The entrance is above the Box Office.


Opera House Gastronomy
Starting with the 21/22 season, there will again be intermission catering, but only in the Spiegelsaal, in the foyer bar, in the Bernhard Bar Cafe, and in good weather on the terrace in front of the Bernadette Restaurant. The catering facilities in the entrance foyer and on the 2nd tier will remain closed for the time being. There is no mask obligation during the consumption.

The most exclusive place at Sechseläutenplatz 1! At the pulse of the city of Zurich, the Bernadette' invites you to an exquisite lunch, sparkling after-work cocktails on the sun terrace, and an elegant dinner in a stylish ambience. The unobstructed view of the lake basin and Sechseläutenplatz is not only a delight for opera house visitors. In summer, people meet on the large terrace of the Bernadette' and watch the hustle and bustle on Sechseläutenplatz.

The Bernadette' is open daily from 11.30 a.m. to midnight and offers hot meals until 11 p.m.

The Zurich Opera House performs all operas in the original language. Performances are generally given with German and English surtitles. In view of the architecture of the Opera House, please be aware that the surtitles are a service from which not all seats can benefit to the same degree. Our box office will be pleased to advise you on T +41 44 268 66 66.


No replacement tickets will be provided for performances not attended. In general, tickets cannot be returned. Tickets can be given to the Opera House Box Office to be sold on commission. However, the Opera House can give no guarantee that it will sell or reimburse the ticket. A commission fee of CHF 10 per seat will be charged. Alternatively, you can donate your ticket to the Club Jung and thus enable a young person to visit Zurich Opera House free of charge.

Late Arrival

The performances begin on time. Out of consideration for the artists and the audience, visitors arriving late can only take their seats after the break, and until then watch the performance on a screen in the foyer.


The cloakroom fee is included in the ticket price.

Dress code

There is no dress code at Zurich Opera House. You should dress to feel at ease. However, consistently with the festive setting, visitors are generally elegantly dressed. Particularly on special occasions, such as gala performances and premières, black tie and evening dresses are by no means out of place.

Opera glasses

Opera glasses are available in the entrance foyer against a deposit.

Picture, sound and video recordings

For copyright reasons, pictures, sound and video recordings are not permitted.
