    • Our signage system, distance markers and seating plan will help your guests to find their way.
    • Social distancing rules (1.5 m) between people must be adhered to.

    Is barrier free access still available?

    Barrier-free access and vehicular access to all rooms is guaranteed. All lifts are operational. However, the number of users has been limited.

    Will there be a cloakroom service?

    We are currently unable to offer a cloakroom service. Coats and bags may be taken into the room.

    What are the arrangements for access to toilets?

    Use of the toilets is limited to a lower number of users than normal. As queues should be avoided, service personnel may have to control and regulate access.

    What cleaning process is used in the Historische Stadthalle?

    Our cleaning staff are working to an increased cleaning timetable – not only in the toilet area, but also on disinfecting other surfaces (banisters, handrails, door handles) and in the catering area. Disinfectant dispensers are available throughout the building.

    Instead of cleaning with traditional cleaning products, we use a chemical-free ozone cleaning device by Tersano. This appliance infuses tap water with atmospheric oxygen to create active oxygen. The resulting acqueous ozone cleans 99.9% of dirt, germs and viruses from surfaces.

      How does the air conditioning in the Großer Saal work?

      The ventilation system is operated solely with fresh air and has an output capacity of 40,000 m3/h. To ventilate the room, fresh air is sucked in from the park behind the Stadthalle, cleaned using three filters and then heated, cooled, humidified or de-humidified depending on requirements. The thus prepared air is then once again filtered by outlets concealed in the wooden panelling of the room and delivered into the room with little pressure along almost the entire length of the walls. As this inlet air is generally cooler than the air warmed in the room, this creates an upward air flow in the room which carries potentially contaminated aerosoles up towards the ceiling. The ceiling contains air outlets, concealed in the gilded stucco work. An air intake and exhaust unit sucks the air in through these openings and transports it outside.

        Is it possible to hold events that include food?

        Together with Culinaria Wuppertal, we are able to offer catering concepts suitable for the relevant event format that meet the regulations applicable in North Rhine-Westphalia.

        May I sell tickets through the box office/on the night at the Historische Stadthalle?

        The box office/box office on the night at the Historische Stadthalle is currently still closed.

        Will contact details be recorded for each visit?

        In accordance with the coronavirus protection regulations, we are required to record the contact details of all visitors and to store them for four weeks in order to assure traceability. Data collection/ conforms to our privacy policy.

        We are here for you and look forward to seeing you again.


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

        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.

        A wheelchair

        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.
