Admiralspalast’s Majestic Auditorium, the Grand Hall. The Grand Hall, with its two balconies, its 450 square meter stage, and its massive chandelier, are the heart of the Admiralspalast. The Grand Hall is noteworthy for its versatility. Every form of event is conceivable there, from theater productions, symphony
concerts, and gala events to award ceremonies, receptions, balls, and special events. The parquet seating, mounted on air bearings, can disappear under the balcony, creating space for individual seating arrangements. Both the traditional and the modern are reflected in the open stairway that connects the balconies and historical foyers with each other, creating additional space. Our technical support team will gladly advise you so that each event is given the ideal setting with a professional staging of light and sound.

History

The Admiralspalast was constructed in 1910 on Friedrichstrasse and opened in 1911 as a venue with a variety of entertainment opportunities: it featured an ice palace, a public bath, a cinema, a restaurant and a bowling alley. With this wide range of cultural and recreational offerings, it became one of Berlin’s most popular amusement sites. In the beginning of the 1920s, it was first turned into a varieté theater, and then, during the Nazi period, transformed into a regular theater where especially operettas was presented. In World War II the Admiralspalast was not damaged, despite being in nearest proximity to the central train station and the general devestation of Berlin. After the war the Friedrichstraße was part of the Russian sector of Berlin and therefore the Admiralspalast under the government of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). Admiralspalast gained historical significance as the main political party of the GDR was founded in its auditorium. After the German reunification in 1990 several approaches of reestablishing the theater failed. It was not until its spectacular reopening in 2006, that the venue, with its rich tradition and historically significant location in the heart of Berlin, has once again become one of the leading cultural hot spots of the nation’s capital. Since 2011 the Mehr! Entertainment group as one of the leading providers of entertainment concepts in the German speaking market is the new operator of the Admiralspalast.
