Even if you don't understand German the renowned international story of The Lion King could be sung in Chinese and I would still know what's going on. My German is not great but that didn't matter...the story, songs, dance and music was all just mind blowing from start to finish. What they can do on such a small stage is... More

From the moment the curtains went up, my five year old daughter's jaw dropped and it remained so for the entire show. Even though the show was in German and we didn't speak or understand the language it was worth every penny. The set, costume, songs everything was an experience to remember. We went during the Easter holidays for the... More

Some of the stage settings are amazing, some average. The way of presenting animals like Giraffe, Elefant, Gazelle and Hyenas is impressive. The story is a little stupid. The music is the best especially the African choir sound and the drums at the seperate stages left and right of the auditorium. Incredible expensive especially if you will take the whole... More

I went there with my girlfriend. The show was awesome, really entertaining and so nice to see all the details of the stage work and great actors. We took the package with the dinner just before the show and the food was really good. We will go there again one day. Highly recommended!

Brilliant performance from start to finish , well worth the money which initially seemed extravagant. Enjoyed the performance even though it was in German.

If you like Disney Musicals - you can not miss this one! The whole place is "Lion King's Resort". Great music, great theatre.. you name it, it's great. The prices however are also great, meaning, they are very affordable!

I got the tickets as a birthday present otherwise I wouldn't probably go because it is a bit too expensive for a student and I'm not crazy about theater or musicals, but still I found it a good show and I appreciate the work that has been done in the scenary and costumes, make up, instruments. :) The history is...

For Starters we didn't get to see the show as there was some sort of "misunderstanding" Which was not our mistake in the first place. We travelled all the way, booked the tickets on phone just to make sure that children were allowed.. It is not stated anywhere in their website that children under 3 are not allowed. Since this...
