Theater Winterthur

Switzerland’s largest playhouse for guest performances is based in Winterthur. Europe’s most important ensembles come here to perform.

The imposing theater building in Winterthur hosts some top quality performances by international guest ensembles. The institution’s program covers musical theatre, drama, dance and children’s and youth theater. The venue also regularly stages events like jazz concerts and readings.

Applause is not a mere clap but taken very seriously at the Theater Winterthur. Following every performance the duration and volume of the applause is measured – with the aim of constantly improving it! 

This cultural pleasure can be further enhanced with a visit to the theater restaurant or a glass of wine at the bar.
