Hall 1

Unmatched spaciousness: With 3,000 seats, this is Hamburg’s largest auditorium with fixed seating. Our biggest hall excels in more than one respect: freshly restored brick walls which are under historic preservation protection; super comfortable seats by Italian manufacturer Poltrona Frau; a large stage; and leading-edge sound and lighting equipment.

A great venue for major events of any kind with up to 3,000 participants: Large conferences, annual shareholders’ meetings, party conventions, product shows or concerts.
