CURRENT INFORMTATION DUE TO THE CORONAPANDEMIC
Update March 24, 2021.
Unfortunately, Berwaldhallen has decided to perform all concerts without an audience during the Spring of 2021. Our concerts will be streamed on Berwaldhallen Play and broadcast in Swedish Radio P2.
This season is a bit out of the ordinary here in Berwaldhallen. While waiting for restrictions on audience size to ease, we have continued to offer exciting concerts broadcast in Swedish Radio P2 and streamed on Berwaldhallen Play. On October 15th, we were able to open Berwaldhallen up to 50 audience members. However, in accordance with increased restrictions, all concerts in will be performed without audience. We constantly monitor the situation and adjust according to the current recommendations.
We have taken a number of steps to ensure the safety of both our employees and our audience. Not only your musical experience but also your safety is of great importance to us. We regularly monitor the Swedish Public Health Agency’s guidelines and recommendations with regard to the coronavirus pandemic and are prepared to change our measures according in line with changes to the official guidelines.

Our ticket office will remain closed for physical visits until further notice, in order to reduce congestion. When tickets are available, they may be bought through Berwaldhallen’s website and by phone.

ESSENTIAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR VISIT (when visiting is possible)
- The front doors open 60 minutes before the concert begins and close 15 minutes before the concert begins. This is to avoid congestion in the foyers or the concert hall. If you are seated towards the middle of a seating row, we kindly encourage you to arrive well in advance.
- Your tickets will be scanned at the entrance. Please have your tickets ready when you arrive and follow signs and other visual guides to maintain a steady flow through the foyers, all the way to your seat. Hosts are also available to assist you.
- Hand sanitiser is available in the foyers and inside the toilets. Thanks to our hygiene and sanitation routines, you will always be met with a newly cleaned concert hall when you visit Berwaldhallen.
- It is imperative that you only take the seat specified on your ticket. All visitors are seated with requisite physical distance between parties. No more than two people are allowed to sit together, in accordance with government regulations. Only one or two tickets are currently bookable per order. Our ticketing system automatically blocks adjacent seats.
- Additionally, the seating rows closest to the stage are blocked in order to ensure requisite distance between the audience and the performers.
- We ask you to remain patient after the concert as exiting the concert hall will take longer than usual. In order to ensure the safety of our visitors, we will release the audience by section and floor.
- Café Berwald is currently closed in order to reduce congestion in the foyers. Programme booklets are also currently unavailable for purchase. Unattended wardrobe is available free of charge.
WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR YOURSELF AND OTHERS?
We have a shared responsibility in these special times. We all need to help curb the spread of infection. Please read and follow these instructions carefully and help us keep Berwaldhallen a safe and healthy place for everyone.
- If you feel even the slightest symptoms, stay at home. Please wait at least two days after symptoms have passed before visiting Berwaldhallen.
- Study our seating plan prior to your visit to make finding your seat easier and quicker when you arrive. You are only allowed to take the seat that you have been assigned.
- It is strictly forbidden to enter the stage or the backstage area.
- Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly with soap and water. Also, cough or sneeze in your armpit, not your hands. If you cannot wash your hands, use hand sanitiser.
- Try to maintain approximately two metres of physical distance to other visitors when moving around in the foyers, cloakroom, toilets and the concert hall.
- If you are unable to visit us, you can always find a selection of concerts on Berwaldhallen Play.
All of the Swedish Radio’s employees – including Berwaldhallen – are instructed to work from home as much as possible, to stay home at first symptoms of illness and not return to work for at least two days after symptoms have passed.
