#19 of 400 in Nightlife in Berlin
The Theater des Westens (Theatre of the West) is one of the most famous theatres for musicals and operettas in Berlin, Germany, located at Kantstraße 10–12 in Charlottenburg. It was founded in 1895 for plays. The present house was opened in 1896 and dedicated to opera and operetta. Enrico Caruso made his debut in Berlin here, and the Ballets Russes appeared with Anna Pavlova. In the 1930s it was run as the Volkstheater Berlin. After World War II it served as the temporary opera house of Berlin, the Städtische Oper (Municipal Opera). In 1961 it became the first theatre in Germany to show musicals. Since then it has become the "German equivalent of Broadway extravaganzas", putting on plays and musical comedies.

  • Amazing place to visit. Great vibe, lots of places to eat nearby. The seats are a bit small and old, there is not enough space for your feet ! Great Musical theater, “Tanz der Vampire” was EXCELLENT. 👏👏
  • Very pretty theatre, seats are much comfier that in most London theatres. So easy to access, and in a neighbourhood with a bunch of cute restaurants and cafes.
