A Baroque gem from 1896
The Silbersaal (silver hall) is a real jewel and the only room left of the original theatre building from 1896. The rest of the building was almost completely destroyed during a bombing in 1943 and rebuilt in the mid-1950s. It is almost a miracle that the Silbersaal, which is situated right next to the Auditorium destroyed by the bombs, was spared. Nowadays, it is the gem of the theatre. The room had not been open for use due to regulations regarding security and fire prevention until it was staffed with all the modern standards during the renovation. Nevertheless, the Baroque style and the ornate stucco were preserved – as was the impressive ceiling fresco, which looks wonderful in the mysterious light ot the shimmering chandelier. The Silbersaal offers room for up to 230 people seated or up to 399 people standing. Artists such as cabaret performers, musicians and actors present their shows in a very intimate athmosphere. During ballroom season, the Silbersaal is also often used for additional seats or as a second dancefloor.
The entrance to the Silbersaal is located on the left hand side of the inner courtyards coming from the Schwanthalerstraße at “Aufgang III” – Please also follow our signs.
