In the evening, when it darkens and hundreds of candles light up inside the tent, the PALAZZO Spiegeltents unfold a very special charm. Equipped with noble materials such as brocade and silk, the imposing art nouveau interior of the tents make the visitor enter a world long past.
The history of the Spiegeltents dates back to the last century, when the tents were mainly used as mobile dance pavilions and were rebuilt week after week in another city. After WWII, the Spiegeltents were forgotten: The youth no longer danced to the sound of the dance organ, the first dance clubs opened their doors in the cities, and the mobile dance palaces were pushed out gradually by modern rides on the country's annual markets. It was above all music and theater festivals, which helped the Spiegeltents to a real comeback from the middle of the 1970s onwards.
Although the Spiegeltents are reproduced according to traditional design plans, the latest sound and lighting technology and a heating and climate system ensure an enjoyable show experience and stay. The center of the tent is reserved for the stage, which can be hydraulically raised and lowered, thus providing the best view from all sides.
The seats for up to 400 guests are divided into three sections: the ring with round tables is located in the center of the tent. The circle surrounds the ring, while the cozy boxes are found in the outer tour. In the attractively designed foyers are cloakrooms and a bar, which invite you to linger with a drink before or after the show.
