Insane revue-type Las Vegas show, a LOT of feathers and painted costumes, 500 pieces or more from the mad mind of Gaultier ... absolutely enjoyable fluff, but pales in comparison to Cirque du Soleil - many wild acts jammed together for no apparent reason. Still, an impressive achievement on what is repeatedly - in four languages - drilled into your... More

The Palast hosts great Broadway-style shows. Lots of participants, special effects, music and dance. 2 years ago we saw "The Wyld", and it was amazing. Last months it was "The One", which we liked less.

A beautiful theater with an amazingly huge stage. We saw, The One, while we were there. The show, the costumes, the acrobats, and the music were amazing.

We watched The One Grand Show here last week and I can only say it was fantastic! The whole experience was superb, the venue is modern, clean and feels special. The show itself was amazing, the costumes were superb and the artists were brilliant! a must see in Berlin!!

I watched the show with my husband and two sons of 13 and 15 years in our Christmas holiday. We all loved the fantastic show, the costumes the artists the amazing light show. It was every cent worth. We will surely come and watch another show some day...

I went to the The One show with my 84 year old mother on December 22 and we spent a great evening ! We might have different tastes , but both of us found acts to our liking. We especially enjoyed the costumes, the hoop act - Bravo! very poetic and impressive! and the final line up was great. The... More

We have visited twice before at Friedrichstadt Palast. The shows were great, but this time the show was very "dark" and boaring: dresses were nice, music was negative, nothing inspirational, the story was stupid and wierd dream. We were very disappointed and angry after that low quality, expensive and boaring show.

Thank you for your review and also for the fact that you have already visited us several times. Returning guests are actually the best recognition for our work. Therefore it is a pity that you did not like our current Grand Show. We do of course strive to ensure that every single guest leaves the Palast utterly enthralled. Indeed, for... More

I was there during Berlinale. The hall where was the screening isn't very recommendable, there is less space between seats. I would recommend for sure see this building from outside during the evening and the main hall inside - it looks like small Hogwart ;)

The One was yet again a great show with amazing costumes (this time designed by Jean Paul Gaultier), an awsome stage setting and breathtaking acts performed by great actors. To my taste it stays however slightly behind the previous show "The Wyld" which was performed from Oct 2014 to July 2016.

I am shocked at the reviews I am reading or rather perhaps I have been spoiled with the theatre lands of London and Paris. To be clear the 2 stars are for the magnificent building and the costumes (apparently designed by Jean Paul Gaultier... we were only reminded what felt like 1000 times) The stage setting and costumes were the...

Thank you for your review. We do of course strive to ensure that every single guest leaves the Palast utterly enthralled. Indeed, for the vast majority (95 %) of people, we succeed in this. The famous revue shows at Lido or Moulin Rouge in Paris you are promoting are playing between 10 and 13 years now. These are topless girls... 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.
