Rank in Berlin

The hall of Arena Berlin was built in the Golden Twenties, a time of economic boom and cultural prosperity. General Berliner Omnibus AG (ABOAG) needed a depot for 240 buses. It commissioned the architect Franz Ahrens to build the largest cantilever hall in Europe to date. The construction of Ahrens is remarkable not only for its imposing size and architectural details with elaborate clinker blocks and sculpted figurative sculptures sculpted by the sculptor Arminius Hasemann. The lighting of the hall through transverse skylights and glazed arches of the front panels also make the hall unique. In 1927, the imposing structure with an area of ​​6500 square meters was completed. One year later, the ABOAG moved to the Berlin public transport company (BVG). In the Third Reich, the large-scale hall was misappropriated as a weapons depot. After the war, she served as a refugee camp. After the partition of Berlin in 1961, the monumental industrial building was located on the site of the Berlin Wall. He was no longer freely accessible, but was still used as a bus depot. After German reunification in 1989, the BVG left the site in the district of Treptow four years later. The new sponsor was the Kulturverein Art Kombinat eV, which had been founded in order to hold cultural events in the former depot. In the year 2000, the Arena Berlin was extensively renovated and has since become one of the most popular sites for events in Berlin. Show Less
