Innovative, cosmopolitan and with a long tradition - Erfurt Theatre at the heart of Thuringia's capital city is a major element in the rich and historically significant cultural tradition of Thuringia. At the centre of Germany and very easy to reach, the Erfurt Theatre stands for musical productions, which repeatedly attract attention outside the region too. First performances and revivals have been permanent items in the repertoire for many years now. Together with the Philharmonic Orchestra, an international company of singers guarantees top quality and an unforgettable musical experience.
The Cathedral Steps Festival has also become famous far beyond the borders of Thuringia and Germany. Every year, Erfurt Theatre organises this summer open-air event against the breathtaking backdrop of St Mary's Cathedral and turns the 70 steps of the cathedral hill into an opera or musical stage.
At one of Europe's most modern theatres, you can enjoy opera, operetta, concerts, dance theatre and guest performances on about 250 evenings of the year, in the Large House with 800 seats and the studio stage with 200 seats. At Erfurt Theatre, culture is teamed with culinary delights too. You can always count on first-class hospitality services in the "1894" theatre restaurant.
