The main entrance is available for dropping off passengers but parking is not permitted at the Theaterplatz.
Right behind the Semperoper, in the Devrientstraße, there is an underground car park. From there it is only a short walk (about 200 metres) to the Semperoper (there is no underground connection).
There are other car parks at Frauenkirche, Schießgasse; Frauenkirche Neumarkt, Landhausstraße 2 and at the Haus am Zwinger, Kleine Brüdergasse 3.
The main station and the train station Dresden-Neustadt are near to Semperoper Dresden. The Semperoper is located directly on the Theaterplatz where a tram station of the same name is located; it is also easily reached from Postplatz at only a few minutes’ walk.
Tramline 8 (direction Hellerau) from the main station in Dresden or tramline 9 (direction Kaditz) from the train station North take you directly to the Theaterplatz.
Due to constructions works on the bridge »Augustusbrücke«, the stop Theaterplatz cannot be served by the trams until presumably autumn 2019. Please use tramline 11 (direction Bühlau) from Hauptbahnhof Nord to Postplatz.

By tour bus
The Theaterplatz allows stops only for guests getting in and out of passenger cars. The nearest bus parking spaces are located at, for example, the Zwingerteich, the Carolabücke and Pieschener Allee below Marienbrücke.
Directly behind the Semperoper you will find Semper Zwei, an experimental venue for diverse forms of music theatre, a space for numerous musical series, scientific conferences and dance projects – and, furthermore, a place for the Junge Szene as well as the opera and ballet companies to explore innovative artistic formats in a spirit of fun.
From the evening box office and cloakroom located on the ground floor you can reach the auditorium on the first floor via a staircase or lift. The theatre space can be used in diverse ways, permitting variable arrangements of free-choice seating.
We are always working to make your stay at the Semperoper Dresden and at Semper Zwei as pleasant as possible. A physical disability should not prevent you from enjoying our opera house and our second venue. However, we hope you understand that not all barriers in the Semperoper can be removed due to various architectural features of this historic building.
