The Haus der Berliner Festspiele

In 2001 the Berliner Festspiele found a congenial home in one of the most significant theatre buildings of post-war Germany. What is today the Haus der Berliner Festspiele was opened in 1963 as the “Theater der Freien Volksbühne” under Erwin Piscator and – alongside the Deutsche Oper Berlin – is one of the best known designs by Berlin architect Fritz Bornemann. Set in a garden, the theatre building opens up towards the city through broad glass façades. The interior continues the democratic ideal of post-war modernist architecture. The action on stage can be equally well seen and heard from any seat in the theatre. The pulsating centre of the festivals and events of the Berliner Festspiele, it presents top quality theatre productions, concerts, readings and discussions by international artists all year long.

Our theatre is also available to rent.
