Festhalle Frankfurt is a historic event space which was was opened in 1908 for the 11th German Gymnastics Festival, but has remained incomplete since the proposed warehouse section and conference rooms were never built. One of the most prominent historic gems, the magnificent Neo-Baroque structure with its imposing dome was constructed by Fredrich von Thiersch. Today, with the capacity to hold up to 13,500 people, the hall is part of the Frankfurter Messegelände and is also known as 'Halle 2'. Over a century old, Festhalle is used as a venue for music and dance concerts, parties, opera, ice-skating, tennis tournaments, conferences and other big events. Visit the website for more details.
