It is perfectly suited for congresses, concerts, customer & employee events, banquets, product presentations and workshops - live, hybrid or digital.

The special shape of the hall with its gallery serves to bring you and your guests closer together. At the touch of a button, you get three height-adjustable stage elements (112m²), the latest lighting, sound, image and video technology, a large LED wall, customised acoustics and a modern ambience. Perfectly suited for congresses, conferences, general meetings, seminars, and cultural events.

The rooms in the ENTRA can be easily divided into up to 10 room modules. This gives you the opportunity to design the location flexibly to match your programme. The rear of the hall can be elegantly separated with a movable wall and thus offers space for break-out sessions or lectures for up to 140 people. The spacious, light-flooded foyer with adjoining terrace and separate lounge is ideal as a catering area and networking zone. Smaller meeting rooms are suitable for seminars or creative workouts. Carefully coordinated furniture and natural, highquality materials create an open, pleasant atmosphere.
