The building was constructed in 1910 on Friedrichstrasse and opened in 1911 as an ice palace under the name Admiralspalast. With its ice arena and spectacular ice ballet, it became one of Berlin’s most popular amusement sites. In the beginning of the 1920s, it was turned into a revue theater, and, during the Nazi period, an increasing number of operettas were presented. Since its spectacular reopening in 2006, 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. A place that makes a respectful bow to history and offers a meaningful home to every type of event. A finely balanced interplay of both the historical and the modern was achieved in the extraordinary building complex. Whether in its glamorous Grand Hall with its 1,733 seats and its elegant foyers or in the Studio and 101 theaters – Admiralspalast is an event location that can host up to 2,300 guests.
The Historical Inner Courtyard
The historical building’s inner courtyard provides access to the various venues. There are no limits to the variety of its uses. The inner courtyard can serve as a festive red carpet zone for premiers or a venue for award presentation ceremonies. It is also possible to stage a public viewing here – in the middle of Berlin and yet in an intimate atmosphere. A mobile bar is available for snacks and beverages.
Foyers and Bars
An impressive open stairway leads the guests to their seats and the historic-looking foyers on both balconies. The foyer bars offer an inviting place for conversation and refreshments before and during the performances. The foyers offer an ideal venue for both receptions and post-show events.
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.
The Studio in Admiralspalast
The Studio on the fifth floor of the Admiralspalast is reached through the historical inner courtyard. The Studio is a medium-sized theater and performance hall. Equipped with a height-adjustable platform stage, the room can be converted from a theater to a seatless hall with standing room for up to 700 people. Besides theatrical performances, readings, comedy shows, and presentations are held here. The hall is also suitable for a variety of gala events and receptions. Integrated, high-end equipment provide outstanding sound quality. The foyer is a special attraction; all in white, it is notable for its blending of modern and Art Déco. The Studio’s foyer has a separate bar area and can also be used for receptions, discussion roundtables, or press conferences.
