Event location since 1913 - ballroom or hall of mirrors? You can now rent the Berlin original.


History & Background

The Ballhaus, soon affectionately known as “Clärchens” by the Berliners, was opened on 13 September 1913 by Clara Bühler and her husband Fritz as “Bühler’s Dance House”. Both were passionate dancers and animated the place with their energy. While high society celebrated upstairs in the Hall of Mirrors (Spiegelsaal), all of Berlin danced downstairs in the Ballroom. For more than 100 years now, people have celebrated and danced in the two dance halls. Clärchens Ballhaus is one of the last remaining ballroom buildings from the 20th century. The Hall of Mirrors still shines today in its original glory.
