Being announced as the greatest show outside of Vegas, we expected a lot. But we're greatly disappointed. The show lacks interesting and surprising choreography, the instructor seems to believe that if he dressed the dancers up in sexy costumes, it would take the focus away from the average acts and at times lack of synchronous dancers. There was a really... More

Liked the ads for The Wyld and thought why not. Well, what a show! The story line was a bit vague but the performers were brilliant. The show was a combination of Cirque Du Soleil, Moulin Rouge, Trapeze acts, animal acts a different version of the Can Can, ballet and top class dancers. The Palast was the perfect venue to... More

This show had a lot of different acts and was amazing in its staging, production values and performers. It should not be compared to Le Cirque de Soleil or other similar shows since it is a unique and stand-alone experience. The fact that we were in a theater that had its origins in the extraordinary venue originally conceived by Max... More

The Wyld, which we watched in Palast Berlin, isn't a musical, it's a show like circus with acrobats, a lady with dogs that jump and do things, clowns, a travesti, dansers and 3 singers. It doesn't have any story to tell, it doesn't have a beginning and an end, it's an expensive show (100 Euros for 2 in no so... More

What a stunning insight :-) If you go to a Show Palace you will see a show (and not a musical). And if you go to an Opera House they very likely play operas and in a musical theatre you get to see musicals. You give us a bad review for playing what we are supposed to play. With no... More

This is a superb contemporary production on a grand scale. Very entertaining and has a very professional group of performers. We enjoyed it tremendously.

The dhow started a bit, the first scene took too long. The main acts are very good. One level below Cirque du Soleil but we had a nice evening.

We have visited the Show WYLD in Berliner Friedrichstadt Palast , Ende April. it was advertised as the biggest show outside Las Vegas, with huge budget. Unfortunately it was a big flop. It was a mixture of different types of entertaining: musical , circus , singing, but everything at a very , very low level. Der dt Regisseur has not... More

This is not a response to the user who wrote this review, but rather information for those who read it: THE WYLD is not a musical. The Palast Berlin calls itself Europe's Show Palace. As can be seen in Las Vegas, too, lack of a story line and the mixture of different types of entertainment is exactely what revue shows... More

Honestly we couldn't believe our luck in getting to see such a marvellous performance. I only found out about Friedrichstadt-Palast on Tripadvisor when researching before our travel to Berlin. I booked on line months before our visit and secured the cheapest seats available - less than Euro 17 each - before The Wyld even opened. The booking on line is... More

Honestly the Belarus circus I saw a month ago had more acrobatic power than this. While the women are beautiful and the one rockettes scene is fun, as others have said, the BMW stint is laughable, the muscle men juvenile, and no acrobatics to speak of in the first half. My instincts said not to come but I caved due... More

Please allow me to use capital letters, just because it is important: WE ARE NOT A CIRCUS. Sorry to say, but your review is a bit like going to the Opera House and then later to complain at TripAdvisor that they didn't play pop music. So always follow your instincts or watch our show trailer on our website. There you... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
