Great venue and superb memorable show. The show is breathtaking and it has something for everyone from great dancers to acrobatic acts and great choreography . The sheer energy of the show is just so exciting and it's no wonder why the show is more or less been a total success and sell out. The huge theatre is also amazing... More

Even though the show was in predominantly German (and I have to use a phrasebook!!) what a show. What an extravaganza. Well worth a visit. I'd happily pay to go back there. If you are going to photograph the show, really really make sure your flash is turned off (you won't need it with a half tidy camera,) they gave... More

I have travelled to Berlin four times in the last year and have gone to see this show three times. I have seen several shows over the years in this theatre and never have I ever been dissapointed, absolutely breath taking shows. The work and dedication going into these shows at the Friedrichstadtpalast is a tribute to the Production team... More

We saw the show WYLD this summer. The show was not as good as previous shows we've seen in this theater. The beginning was slow, there's a 30 minute interval in a less than 2-hour show. In the second half, a long, nonsensical Egyptian sequence added to the boredom. The music just seemed to repeat, over and over, "into the... More

Not what I expected at all - a really off the wall, actually quite a weird show. Saying that it was a great spectacle - a quirky mixture of fantastically choreographed dance routines and breathtaking acrobatics.....there must have been a story-line somewhere I'm sure - but if you want to see a Vegas style show this won't disappoint. The venue... More

Took in a show here, stage is large and it opened up to reveal a swimming pool and also sand beach, which were used by the dancers, to impressive effect. Classed as the largest cabaret theatres in Europe I am not sure about that, but it must the one of the largest and great for taking in a colourful cabaret... More

Amazing show, emotions you will receive worth every cent you'll spend to get there. I've been to Moulen Rouge in Paris and must say that I like "The Wyld Show" 10 times more! Come here and enjoy an evening.

This show is highly publicized for international visitors in Berlin but it's somewhat overrated. The individual performances are excellent but the show itself has no story in it.

Thank you for your review and that you have chosen to rate THE WYLD with three stars despite your criticism. Our greatest wish would of course be for you to have also left the Palast with a smile on your face. For around 94% of reviewers here on TripAdvisor, we fortunately appear to have managed this. While 100% satisfaction with... More

Ich habe die Premiere gesehen und den letzten Vorhang... Insgesamt habe ich mir die Show 13 Mal angeschaut und hatte beim letzten Mal noch immer das gleiche Kribbeln im Bauch, wie ganz am Anfang. I had attended the world premiere two years ago and was present for the final curtain. During that time I saw the show for a total... More

Came there with big expectations and left totally thrilled! Wonderful show, de-lish pretzels and cocktails. Great location right in the city centre. This is one of the few things I really loved in Berlin.

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.
