An answer to reality – in the here and now.
A few months before he died, Richard Strauss composed his “Four Last Songs” to poems by Joseph von Eichendorff and Hermann Hesse under the impact of the events of his time. They are some of his most intense compositions in which death is seen as a release from profound tiredness, but they offer a tentative glimmer of hope towards the end. The duo Camilla Nylund and Helmut Deutsch perform the rarely heard arrangement for piano – delicate and almost intimate, under the impact of the events of our time. With optimism.

As part of the “MOMENTUM: Our Future, Now” initiative, supported by Bayer Kultur, Camilla Nylund und Helmut Deutsch give a singer of the new generation the opportunity to perform in a concert with a large audience to actively counteract the effects of the current crisis

Worth Knowing For Your Visit

This is where you will find detailed directions.

Parking Flat Day Rate

Make use of our flat day rate for parking. It only costs 4 euros. One useful tip: you can pay at the pay stations in the multi-storey car park itself or in the stairwell either when you return to your vehicle or in advance of attending events. That will save you time waiting at the pay stations after the end of events.


It goes without saying that the Historische Stadthalle is equipped to provide access for disabled people.

Wheelchair ramps and lifts (with announcement) will provide you with easy access to all rooms.

Parking spaces for disabled people are available both in the multi-storey car park and in the Südstrasse car park.

Toilets for disabled people can be found on the ground floor (to the right of the main entrance) at the eastern end of the foyer. They are clearly signposted.

An unlimited number of wheelchair places is available in the Großer Saal.

Our concierge, foyer team and culinaria staff are happy to help should you need assistance at any time.
