It is near to the Friedrichstr station.
Real fantastic show, similar to Las Vegas.
Cheerful song, dance, dizzying acrobatics and circus!

Should be seen once in Berlin during a free evening. Location is super because you can then leave the Palast and have a great time along one of the fine typical Berlin Kneipen along the Spree. Also near all public transportation.

OK it does not fully match up to a reputable Las Vegas show nevertheless 'Show Me' was entertaining and on this particular evening visited mostly by German tourists.

Tip for tickets: if you are not going for the V.I.P seats, book Row C in the middle (Euros 60,00). However, the auditorium is very well designed and the stage is in view from all angles and heights.

The revolving stage, pop ups, lighting, laser effects, special effects, sound effects choreography are amazing and the costumes are stunning. The dance in the sand pit as well as the acrobatic swimming is good. Good quality singers who sang in English in the first half of the show. The Chinese acrobatic act was daring, graceful and artistic. The duo Aragorn on the trapeze deserved a standing ovation. Big orchestra and electric ambiance.

There are lifts to all floors and dress is casual to fineries. Worth a visit if you have sufficient time while in Berlin.

Thank you very much for visiting the Palast and for your positive review.

Since you come from London, we consider it a very nice coincidence that THE SUNDAY TIMES on July 7, 2013 has also given a positive recommendation to visit the show, "like the locals do". It's true, 40 percent of our guests are living in Berlin, almost 20 percent are international guests, and 40 percent are German tourists from outside Berlin.

Here's the quote. Under the headline “Live like a local – Berlin” THE SUNDAY TIMES wrote about the Dos and don'ts in Berlin: “LOCALS DON'T: Miss a great evening out at the Friedrichstadt-Palast. It’s Europe’s biggest revue show and known as “Las Vegas in Berlin”. It really is a fantastic spectacle with music, dance and awesome special effects. It’s very visual – you don’t have to speak German to enjoy it.”
