Children's events / Youth protection

At the Gasteig, many events for children are run throughout the year. The Gasteig München GmbH especially cares about compliance with the law for the protection of children and youth. Please note that every child, regardless of their age, must have their own ticket and therefore their own seat. For reasons of health and safety it is not possible to raise the height of the seats at any event. In the interests of your child, please pay attention to any age restrictions mentioned on the ticket.


Cloakroom / Baggage Deposit

For your safety and for the protection of all visitors (e.g. to ensure emergency escape routes or fire protection measures), certain rules for handling coats and baggage are applied during all events at the Gasteig.

The following items are not allowed into the event halls:

  • Jackets and coats (which are not worn in the event halls)
  • Bags, rucksacks and others which are more than 42 x 30 x 12 cm in size
  • Umbrellas
  • Bulky objects such as children's seats, bicycle helmets or purchases
  • Instruments, notebooks and any other valuable items which can be easily damaged

Please do not take any food or drinks into the halls and always follow the instructions of the attendants. We also ask you to use the sufficiently available and secure cloakrooms at the Gasteig!

Dress code

Generally speaking, you are suitably dressed for a concert of classical music if you wear a suit or costume. But there are all sorts of events at the Gasteig – and there is no dress code. Wear whatever you feel comfortable in.


Eating and Drinking

Eating and drinking is absolutely forbidden in the concert and lecture halls. Please do not take any food or drink with you when you attend an event.


Evening Box-Office / Tickets

The evening box-office opens one hour before the start of the event. For events in the Philharmonie (Philharmonic Hall) the evening box-office is situated on the ground floor of the Philharmonie. For events in all other locations, the evening box-office is situated on the ground floor of the Glashalle (Glass Hall).

For most lectures by the Münchner Volkshochschule (Munich Adult Education Centre) and events in Room 0131 (EG) (ground floor), and in some cases for events in the Carl-Amery-Saal (Carl Amery Hall, former Library Lecture Hall/Vortragssaal der Bibliothek) and in the Black Box, tickets are sold at the door.
