  • Magnificent saddle-shaped building. Now the House of culture. It is worth approaching a stroll.

  • We passed it a few times on the 100 bus and once we learned more about the locally nicknamed pregnant oyster we decided to pay it a quick visit. It is very peaceful and has a nice cafe / restaurant an...  more »
  • La casa delle culture construction fair was built in 1957. Is certainly one of the most modern works of art in Berlin.

  • Visually pleasing, but completely overpriced. The lobby with the designer goods display is reminiscent of Macy's on Herald Square (located in NYC). Overall, a good place to check out, but if you are from a larger city such as London, Hong Kong, etc. it will not impress you (and neither will the exorbitant prices).
  • It is worth keeping your eye on this place just for the outdoor summer music shows. In 2017 I came here to see Oumou Sangare & Marcos Valle for €16 a concert! They have an enormous roof terrace and set up the stage in front of the architecturally intriguing concrete "clam". Look around you and all you see are the tops of trees from the green surroundings. Couple this with great sound, good sight lines, plenty of space and a well priced bar and you will have a very special Berlin summer night concert. I keep half an eye on their weekly emails and even though I have only come here for the music they seem to have a continually interesting series of multi-media events and shows happening, many addressing serious present day and near future issues and it seems to be a great bridge between intellectualism and real life rather than head up it's own arse conceptual and high art venue.
  • This place is in a great location, is like into the woods, but that's it, you only can visit this place when there are events
  • It's a nice building for conventions, theatre and everything else that requires a stage. There are different sized halls with different lighting, stages and number of seats. I went there for the TYPO 2017 and saw the big, as well as the small halls. The small ones a rather uncomfortable due to many seats in a small space and low ceiling. The big hall was great. Much space for every seat, high ceiling and very good acoustical systems. This place is also worth visiting for someone interested in architecture, since this place just looks like it is from outer space to me.
  • The transmediale festival usually has its main exhibitions here! Those are always worth a visit. The building itself is also architecturally interesting!
