How to get here
The Semperoper Dresden is located in the historic old town of Dresden and can be easily reached from the motorway, the airport and the railway station. Semper Zwei, the second stage of the Semperoper Dresden, is located diagonally behind the opera house towards the Zwinger.
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.
By public transport–railway, bus, and tram
The main station and the train station Dresden-Neustadt are near to Semperoper Dresden.
The Semper Opera House 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 2018. Please use tramline 11 (direction Bühlau) from Hauptbahnhof Nord to Postplatz.
Tramline 11 (direction Zschertnitz) from the train station Dresden-Neustadt takes you to Postplatz.
Tramlines 1, 2, 4, 12 also stop at Postplatz as well as the bus lines 62 and 94.
