The Halle within Kulturetage is a major venue in Oldenburg for concerts and music festivals. It is also the site of hip dance parties, famous cabarets, and dramas that attract theater lovers even from surrounding towns. A balcony encircles three sides of the hall, while cozy seating and standing spaces surround the stage. During the club parties, the hall is decorated with avant-garde props and mood lighting, and trendy patrons dance to groovy tunes. Bibliophiles can also attend quieter events like book and poetry readings. Food is served at most events by local caterers.
