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.
