Villa Elisabeth

Invalidenstr. 3 10115 Berlin Navigation >

In the location's words:

Profile The listed house impresses with its generosity. Through a spacious foyer and via a wide staircase with wrought-iron banisters, one reaches the gallery hall. Stuccoed columns and arches support the gallery, the characteristic herringbone parquet flooring, half-height wooden panels and heavy double wooden doors underscore the historic charm of this carefully renovated ballroom. Outside, the likewise listed church park - a green gem in the center of Berlin - invites visitors to linger. As a free venue, the Villa Elisabeth offers space for a wide-ranging, curated cultural program; the focus is on contemporary and early music, experimental and interdisciplinary formats, but also classical chamber music series, vocal music in smaller ensembles, modern music and dance theater, as well as experimental performances and up-and-coming projects. History of the Villa The Villa Elisabeth was inaugurated in 1907 as the parish hall of the neighboring Schinkel Church of St. Elisabeth and was a place of lively parish life. After the destruction of the church in 1945, the villa also served as a place of worship until the merger of the Elisabeth parish in 1998. In 2003, the Kultur Büro Elisabeth (then Kulturbüro SOPHIEN) was founded to use the Villa Elisabeth together with the St. Elisabeth church as a cultural venue for a broad public.
