Guided tours

Guided tours through the Historische Stadthalle are always a wonderful experience. Wander through all the rooms at you leisure, learn about the more than 100 hundred-year-old history of the magnificent building dating from the time of Emperor William II and discover corners that are usually hidden from visitors’ eye.

Special tours
We are pleased to offer individual guided tours through the building. These can, however, take place only as and when permitted by the plan of rehearsals and other events. Changes at short notice are therefore possible.

The special guided tour (duration aprox. 90 min), costs 100 euros plus VAT for groups of up to 20 people. Above that number, the charge is 5 euros plus VAT per person.

Special tours in English are also offered (price on request).

Weddings

Just say “I do”

The wedding of your dreams is due in part to a venue that matches your big day. Enjoy the celebration in the splendid atmosphere of our wonderful building. Let us thoroughly spoil you (and your 50 to 500 guests).

The wedding ceremony becomes an event in itself when it takes place in one of our magnificent rooms. In principle, your journey to seventh heaven can start any day (but Sunday) between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. by arrangement with the registry office.

First, coordinate your preferred date with our office: Ms. Lea Bast and Mr. Lars Iven, Tel. +49 202 24589-67 /-78 or by e-mail (bast(at)stadthalle.de, iven(at)stadthalle.de). You are welcome to view our facilities. Please make an appointment to do so.

Then you should sort out the remaining details with the registry office (Standesamt): Tel. +49 202 563-6114 or 5164.

Most wedding ceremonies take place in our beautiful Majolika Saal West. We charge 380 Euros for making the room available for two hours in order to hold the ceremony.

But of course you can also get married in any of the other magnificent rooms. The picturesque traditional slate cottage in the garden of the Historische Stadthalle also offers a charming alternative for weddings in a very small intimate setting. We charge 100 Euros for an occupancy of two hours. We would be pleased to supply you with the details and conditions for all the other rooms.

If you wish, we will take care of your extra arrangements and organize a musical programme tailored to your personal wishes and requirements. We would also be pleased to take care of the appropriate floral decorations.
