1-west wing-great-orangery-Berlin

Plenty of scope for your own ideas for a unique event:
the West Wing

The west wing of the Great Orangery Charlottenburg will impress you and your guests with its unique character. Two 56m-long facades with floor-to-ceiling arched windows give the ballroom an inviting ambience that retains its palatial grace even in the evening and at night.

Baroque stucco elements on the walls and the well-maintained checkerboard-pattern stone floor are subtly reminiscent of the courtly culture of Prussian kings and princes. The walls decorated in simple white and the 6.50m-high ceiling help create a sophisticated atmosphere in the West Wing, while at the same time offering the opportunity to transform the hall into a unique event venue with appropriate lighting and decoration concepts.

Your options as an organiser are correspondingly diverse: from classic to modern, from business to party, from 2 to 500 people. The West Wing of the Great Orangery is suitable for trade fairs and exhibitions, conferences, meetings and presentations, business and product presentations (incl. vehicle presentations), as well as for small and large festive anniversary or milestone birthday celebrations, lavish weddings, or grandiose balls.

In the West Wing, you don’t have to worry about things
you shouldn’t have to worry about

Over a total area of 448m2, the West Wing combines echoes of baroque splendour with stately restraint. Complemented by excellent infrastructure, the West Wing is deservedly very popular as an event location in Berlin.

The straight layout, the ground-level access up to 7.5t, the wide and high doors to both the foyer and the hall, and the barrier-free access ensure nothing stands in the way of the success of your event. As does our on-site project manager, who will take care of your concerns and needs at all times.

Furthermore, the West Wing has reliable basic equipment that you can use as a host, including the permanently installed background sound system, the suspension points for posters and pictures available all over, and the restricted Wi-Fi. Of course, lighting technology can also be installed temporarily,

a temporary, powerful conference hotspot can be set up, or a stage (24m2 to 36m2) constructed if required.

Even without additional facilities, you can rely on the excellent event conditions in the West Wing: optimum visibility from every seat, a pleasant lighting situation, and the excellent acoustics enable and support the implementation of a huge variety of events.

When you hire the West Wing, the Orangery Hall (the central foyer of the Great Orangery) is also included to provide a pleasant setting to welcome your guests. With its 8.50-high, sophisticated domed ceiling and the flanking columns of red stucco marble, the Orangery Hall provides a magnificent backdrop and ensures your guests are left with an unforgettable first impression as soon as you welcome them.

Rent out this event venue and you’ll also be hiring 3,100m2 of decorative greenery

The floor-to-ceiling windows of the West Wing not only give you an idyllic view of the Orangery Terrace but also offer direct access on request. The cultivated garden is also open to you and your guests for stimulating promenades or as a venue

for a delicious catering service, a dazzling champagne reception, or a cheerful get-together.

The use of the cultivated gardens is included in the hire charge.

Not just the right setting for your message, but also space for up to 500 guests

Organisers will love the wide range of usage options and generous creative freedom offered by the West Wing: the baroque details characterise the ballroom without dominating it, so you can combine tradition and modernity just the way you want and need.

By booking our master of ceremonies or the Berlin Residence Orchestra (2 to 30 musicians) in historic costume, you give precedence to the magnificent past.

You can also keep the seating traditional if you want, whether you prefer banquet seating at round gala tables (max. 300 pax), parliamentary seating (200 pax), block table (max. 240 pax), or theatre-style seating  (500 pax).

If you are planning a more informal and casual occasion, you can choose to furnish the West Wing with bar tables (max. 500 pax) or as a spacious lounge.

With the right partners at your side, you are free to focus on hosting

In addition to your good ideas and the West Wing as a special venue, the right service, catering, and equipment partners guarantee an unforgettable event. Our long-term partners include Catering by Marriott Berlin and Markus Herbicht Catering, among others. We are also happy to recommend our preferred furnishing and equipment service providers. Nevertheless: there is no caterer commitment for the Great Orangery Charlottenburg Palace. It’s entirely up to you who should be responsible for creating the appropriate tone, the right lighting, and good taste at your event.
