If you want to hear good music in Potsdam, you can't avoid it: the Nikolaisaal is Potsdam's first address for contemporaries with fine ears. Located in the city centre, the Concert Hall inspires a wide audience thanks to its unusual interior design, outstanding acoustics and blinker-free programme variety. For special star appearances and events, like the legendary "Potsdamer Crossover Concerts" or the foyer concerts of the cult series "The Voice in Concert", many take on long ways.

Whether classical music, live film concerts, jazz, world music or pop - the Nikolaisaal with its demanding and at the same time unelitist programme "philosophy" pleads for barrier-free access to good music.

The concert and event house offers not only concerts of different genres and equipment, but can also be rented for congresses, staff meetings, company presentations, events and receptions.
