Festspielhaus Jan 24, 2017
Even though it has been opened less than 20 years ago, in 1998, the Festspielhaus in Baden-Baden has become one of the leading opera and concert halls in Germany.

The main building in the back with audience and stage was designed by the architect Wilhelm Holzbauer in postmodern style. The front part, however, is 100 years older. The entrance hall is actually the old train station of Baden-Baden. After the railway from the main station in Baden-Oos into town had been closed down and substituted by city buses, the neo-classical station building was transformed into vestibule and box office for the new concert hall. The counter that once sold train tickets now serves as box office underneath the original sign saying "Fahrkarten" (train tickets).

Performances in here are always top quality. The most famous stars, musicians, singers, actors, dancers, orchestras and ensembles from all over the world come to perform. The house has no permanent ensemble, hence no own productions. Shows and concerts are done here once or maybe twice, but not over a longer period. So take your chance if there is something on that you'd like to attend. Ticket prices are, as can be expected, rather steep, and demand is high. Definitely prebook through their website.
