  • The City Theatre Varnsdorf is located in a quiet part of the downtown Varnsdorf. There is a park in front of the theatre, with an adjacent Old Catholic church. Varnsdorf could be characterised as a picturesque post-industrial town, which is why there are many luxurious villas and old factories, a large number of wooden stilt houses, and nature is within a few minutes’ walk from the town. Two-thirds of the town are surrounded by neighbouring Saxony. The town’s distinctive feature is the beautifully meandering river Mandava, which connects many towns and villages in Bohemia and Germany. Varnsdorf is located on the edge of the Lusatian Mountains and in the neighbourhood of the Czech Switzerland National Park.


  • The theatre building includes a hall for 449 people, a stage (11 x 11 m) with all equipment, dressing rooms, and accommodation. The vestibule can be used as a “small hall” for about 50 people. The stage area is fully equipped, there are 16 stage lifts and 6 anchor points at the height of 12 m (3 fixed, 3 rotating) for aerial acrobatics. There is a cushioned dance floor, grey or black, projection screen, projector, pianino and grand piano, and other equipment.
