Head to the Friedrichstadt-Palast, the so-called ‘Berlin Broadway’ in recognition of its capacity, size, and state-of-the-art effects. Located in the heart of Berlin’s lively Friedrichstrasse, the theater is popular with Berliners and visitors alike, who go to see dazzling revue performances inside its iconic building. The history of the building is nearly as enticing as the shows that take place in it. Having started out as a market hall, Friedrichstadt-Palast was reborn as a theater following a lavish makeover by modernist artist Hans Poelzig. After having suffered structural damages to the original building, in 1984 the new Friedrichstadt-Palast re-opened as the last major grand construction project of the German Democratic Republic (GDR), which was already beginning to near its end at the time. Choose between different ticket options and enjoy a show featuring sixty international dancers, renowned acrobats, live music and amazing special effects. The full performance lasts 2.5 hours and includes a 25-minute break. As the show does not contain any dialogues, it is perfect for international guests.
