I understand the show only has a few more weeks to run. If you are in Berlin and fancy a break from the nightly round of 'find a restaurant for supper' you could do a lot worse... read more

I understand the show only has a few more weeks to run. If you are in Berlin and fancy a break from the nightly round of 'find a restaurant for supper' you could do a lot worse. We felt that we had shared a Saturday night with a few thousand Berliners in a venue which puts most London theatres to... More

I went to see Wyld with some friends here. While I liked the show (didn't love it; not a huge fan of revues in general), I loved the venue itself. Once you walk through the door, there are numerous elegant seating areas for conversation, a coat check, plenty of restrooms, and the decor is really quite lovely. There's a bar... More

We had a wonderful evening watching The Wyld, it is a bizarre/random show that is visually impressive. A German variety show on a big budget!

Really disappointing: no clear storyline, completely out of place circus (poodles reminded me of children's circus of the late 80s). Almost naked man in a pair of high heels and g-strings leave no room for fantasy. Not for children!!! If Las Vegas looks so, I'll never go again to Las Vegas.

The_Palast, Manager at Friedrichstadt-Palast, responded to this review

You’re missing a storyline? Unlike genres such as musicals, revue shows do not actually have a common thread that runs throughout (cf. Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revue). What is typical of the revue genre is collages of splendid images united only by a linking concept. In THE WYLD, what unites is the love of Berlin – this city that is both wonderful and... More

I managed to cleave two late teen lads away from their ipads and computers to interact with real life performance. What can I say - its an incredible show - it doesnt seem to have a "story" as such but is a collection of surreal, professional, excellent performances from dogs to cyclists to underwater performances. The dogs and trapeze artists... More

This was so embarrassing and awful, we left during the intermission. The music is horrible and kistch and the choreography was terrible. Very unprofessional and you should totally avoid this.

When you read the mostly very strongly worded and therefore particularly daunting comments from one-star reviews, it is perhaps helpful to also consider the bigger picture: On TripAdvisor, we have currently a total of 81 unfavourable (one and two stars) reviews – out of 1,114. So 93 per cent of our guests have left a good to excellent review. Every... More

What a show! Words can not describe the performance. We enjoyed every moment, and was sometimes so amazed by the performances that we forgot the applause. The performances, and the beautiful venue, is a must when visiting Berlin.

The Wylde was an incredible night entertainment. The energy of the performers amazed us. The double stage was a wow factor. Never seen anything like this in Australia. Thank u from my husband and myself for a magical night.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. It was much more than we ever expected. I think it out does Las Vegas. It was over the top with dance, music, and staging that words can't describe. We were fortunate to be able to see it all from our private sky lounge. Definitely worth the price for the first rate service, excellent... More

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.
