In the Great Orangery Charlottenburg, you can receive up to 1,000 guests for opulent festivals and large-scale events in the ensemble of the East Wing, the West Wing, and Orangery Hall. With its combination of understated elegance and baroque pomp, the Baroque architecture of the Great Orangery helps give your event an unforgettable charm.
The three separate rooms, along with the 2,000m2 Orangery Terrace, are equally ideal for events with large numbers of participants or exclusive events with varying spatial concepts for a smaller number of selected guests.
Altogether, there are 1,56m2 of room space available, with each wing measuring 448m2 and the central foyer, known as the Orangery Hall, measuring 260m2. With their straight layout, long facades of floor-to-ceiling windows, and the possibility of installing stages, both the East Wing and the West Wing are recommended for trade fairs and exhibitions, meetings and conferences, or concerts and award ceremonies, among other things.
The two wings are separated by the Orangery Hall, which means that each of the two large function and ballrooms can be furnished and used differently. While your congress participants are in session or your start-of-year presentation or product launch is running in the East Wing, the banquet at gala tables or the farewell party in the relaxed lounge atmosphere awaits guest in the West Wing.
The Great Orangery Charlottenburg is thus suitable for corporate events such as summer festivals, Christmas parties, galas, and banquets, as well as for private birthday celebrations and other parties, from weddings ceremonies and receptions to family reunions and other special anniversaries. Thanks to its Baroque architecture, the Great Orangery can also be used as an authentic location for shooting films and television programmes, as well as a sought-after setting for image and advertising photography.
Both the West Wing and the East Wing offer plenty of space for your creative and decorative event concepts, with understated white decor. Thanks to the 6.50m-high ceilings, the 3.70m tall, floor-to-ceiling arched windows, discreet stucco ornaments, and the checkerboard-patter stone floor that’s suitable for dancing, the two 448m2 ballrooms unostentatiously reflect the splendour of the courtly past.
With the option to install a small (24m2, 40cm high) or a large (48m2, 80cm high) stage, the suspension points available for pictures or posters, and the permanently installed background sound system, both the East Wing and the West Wing offer everything you’d expect from a contemporary event location. Deliveries up to 7.5t can be made at ground-level and the floor can be driven on, making your event logistics easy, even for vehicle presentations.
The particularly magnificent baroque architecture makes the Orangery Hall an impressive showcase for your event, right from the reception. The baroque columns in reddish stucco marble all around are reminiscent of the splendour of vibrant court life. The 8.50m-high domed ceiling decorated with paintings gives the Orangery Hall the charm of courtly joie de vivre.
You can receive your guests in truly princely style in the Orangery Hall– represented by our master of ceremonies on request or accompanied by up to 30 musicians from the Berlin Residence Orchestra in period costumes. You can also serve initial refreshments or delicacies at bar tables and create an informal conversational setting for old and new contacts.
The Orangery was once used as a place of recreation by Prussian princes and kings, filled with the fragrance of the exotic citrus fruit grown by the court gardeners in the two wings. Today, the cultivated gardens of the Orangery are especially reminiscent of the botanical craftsmanship of the eminent Master Gardener.
Of course, the 2,000m2 Orangery Terrace is also open to you when you hire out the premises.
Access is ensured via the floor-to-ceiling windows of the three rooms in the Great Orangery. So why not get your guests outside in the well-kept nature for a walk, a lively get-together, or a tasty catering service?
Event and food-service tents can be set up for professional catering or other event requirements.
|Hiring out the Great Orangery lets you set up three events in one. You decide what kind of seating and furnishing you want in each of the three halls – banquet seating at round gala table, block tables, parliamentary seating, theatre-style seating, bar tables, or customised lounge furniture. Depending on the seating concept, the Great Orangery can accommodate up to 1,000 guests (reception at bar tables in both wings).||Our on-site project manager will help ensure your event goes smoothly, from delivery to dismantling. On request, we coordinate the collaboration with your service, equipment, and catering service providers or recommend our preferred partners, such as Catering by Marriott or Markus Herbicht Catering.|
