Liederhalle cultural and congress centre, Stuttgart
The name Liederhalle is a legacy of the 19th century concert hall that was destroyed in the Second World War. Stuttgart's new Liederhalle, a notable post-war cultural building that is now heritage-listed, opened on the same site in 1956. Following expansion in 1991, the Liederhalle cultural and congress centre now includes five large auditoriums and 18 smaller venues.
Baden-Baden Festival Theatre
Baden-Baden Festival Theatre's reputation is founded on grand opera productions, international guest performers, light-flooded foyers and an outstanding restaurant. It is Germany's largest opera house and concert hall, and although it only opened in 1998, the entrance hall is around 100 years older. This exquisite, neo-Renaissance part of the building was once Baden-Baden's railway station.
