Berlin’s high culture for all under-30s

The ClassicCard is your key to Berlin’s high culture … and the best seats in the house.


The ClassicCard is for all under-30s – it can be purchased up to the day before the purchaser’s 30th birthday. It costs 15 euros and is valid for one year, starting on the purchaser’s desired date.


Beginning one hour before start of performance, ClassicCard holders can purchase tickets at a fixed price of 8 euros for concerts or 10 euros for opera and ballet. This gives last-minute visitors the chance of a seat near the front. A list of all performances covered by the ClassicCard can be found here


The ClassicCard is valid for one year and accepted by three opera houses, three orchestras, two choruses and one ballet: Deutsche Oper Berlin / Komische Oper Berlin / Konzerthaus Berlin / Staatsballett Berlin / Staatsoper im Schiller Theater / Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin / Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin / Rundfunkchor Berlin / RIAS Kammerchor. The Card can be used an unlimited number of times for performances by any of the partners named above.


During the season (September – June) every month, on a rota basis, a different participating venue allows a friend of a ClassicCard holder to attend an opera, ballet or concert performance as if he/she were a ClassicCard holder. In July, all operators who still play performances / concerts, offer this service. On one condition: the friend must also be under 30.


As well as a fixed price on the best-placed seats, the ClassicCard offers a bonus every month. This might be a chance to accompany an orchestra on a trip, a draw to appear as an extra, or the opportunity to sit in on a rehearsal. Wait and see what comes up.


The ClassicCard can be purchased online and is issued at the daytime ticket windows (not the evening ticket windows) at the following venues: Deutsche Oper Berlin, Komische Oper Berlin, Konzerthaus Berlin, Staatsoper Unter den Linden and at KulturKaufhaus Dussmann.
