The venues of the Schauspiel Köln are located on the Carlswerk site at Schanzenstrasse 6-20 in Cologne-Mülheim. You can easily reach us by bike, car or public transport. Detailed information on how to get here and parking options can be found here.

The evening box office opens one hour before the start of each performance. In order to avoid queues in the box office foyer, we ask for your understanding that the evening sale has priority over advance sales.

The cloakroom is open for you and free of charge! Larger bags, rucksacks, suitcases, etc. must be handed in at the cloakroom.
The bar in the foyer is open for you one hour before the performance begins and during the performance breaks! You are welcome to enjoy the drinks and food outside in front of the Depot, in the CARLsGARTEN or in the foyer. During the break, the bar staff will be happy to reserve a table for you and set it up for you. Simply contact our counter staff in the Depot or via phone up to two hours before the performance for refreshments during the break. Before or after the performance, the Restaurant Offenbach am CARLsGARTEN will be happy to welcome you with regional dishes and drinks! Reservations at: 0221-26137815 or
The CARLsGARTEN in front of the Depot is a long-term artistic project and has grown into a meeting place in recent years: A green island has been created on the former industrial area, which was previously dominated by an empty concrete area, which invites you to linger all day long.
The foyer in the Depot opens one hour before the performance begins. Admission to the hall will then begin in good time before the start of the performance, so that we can guarantee orderly admission. Please have your ticket and, if applicable, your subscription card or your discount certificate ready. Unfortunately, we can only grant late admission in exceptional cases.
