More information on discounts and special offers for young and older visitors can be found on the website of the Friedrichstadt-Palast.


The Friedrichstadt-Palast, whose name goes back to a neighboring building with a long circus and theater tradition, was founded in 1984 as a revue theater. Today, the 1895-seat show venue is one of the largest and most important in Europe in this specific genre. Characteristic for the Friedrichstadt-Palast and its revue program is the traditional “girl-line.”Other entertainment options available at the Friedrichstadt-Palast includes the Quatsch Comedy Club, which brings Germany’s best comedians to the capital. If you want to combine the spectacular revue evening with an exclusive dinner you should check out the Zenkichi restaurant, which offers the best and authentic Japanese cuisine just around the corner on Johannisstraße.
