Hall 1

Enjoy flexibility and multifunctionality

The multipurpose hall 1, with its wide range of options for use, is the perfect location for trade fairs, concerts, sports events or company presentations.It is one of the most important hotspots for concert organisers in Germany. Up to 12,500 guests can follow rock concerts, sports events or TV productions supported by top technology here.

The high level of functionality of the hall ensures that trade fairs, congresses, concerts and events can be held alternately in short succession. The column-free construction guarantees a good view from all seats. The usable hall height of 12 metres and the high ceiling load-bearing capacity of 40 tonnes makes hall 1 a great choice for larger events.

Additional usable areas:

  • Adjacent outdoor area
  • Spacious, light-flooded foyer spread out over 2 floors

Thanks to variable access options, hall 1 can also be used independently from other events.

Short-notice changes

Hall 1 can be converted from a concert hall into a large conference room for up to 5,200 participants in a short space of time.

Mobile stands and flexible partitions allow capacities to be adapted to the respective requirements.
