The engine house was renovated with financial means of the German class lottery and opened in 2004. The house offers in the basement with a box office and a cloakroom an optimal reception service for the guests of the boiler house and engine house. Upstairs, another venue for 250 guests (standing) was created. In the renovation, much emphasis was placed on maintaining the industrial charm of the house, without sacrificing the requirements of a modern event venue.

The boiler house and the machine house are located directly next to each other so that interesting thematic links are possible at larger festivals. The program of the Maschinenhaus is understood to be an extension of the event program in the Kesselhaus, where theater and music are the focus.

The boiler house has since 1990 becom (...) Show moree one of the most important venues in Berlin. The approx. 1,000-seat hall is a cultural magnet in the middle of Prenzlauer Berg.

This distinctive character provides an atmospheric platform for various events: festivals, concerts, readings, opera, dance and theater productions as well as thematic club series. Show less
