Felsenbühne Rathen (Rathens’ Mountain Theatre)

What a view

The “Felsenbühne Rathen” (Rathens’ Mountain Theatre) is known as one of Europe’s most stunning natural stages. Set in the sandstone rocks at the heart of the National Park, the theatre boasts an impressive ambience that is perfect for operas, fabulous fairytales and classical concerts. No surprise then to come across Winnetou and Old Shatterhand there as well as magic forest sprites and spirits. Weber’s romantic opera “Der Freischütz” is staged to spectacular effect against the rocky backdrop of the Rathener Wehlgrund.

Parking at the ticket office and a transfer service for disabled visitors from there to the theatre is available by prior arrangement. Electric wheelchairs cannot be accommodated.
