Jugendstil-Festhalle - West facade
Landau's Festival Hall was built between 1905 and1907 by the Düsseldorf architect Hermann Goerke in the style of Southern German Art Nouveau.
Although the artistically grouped external features of the structure remained for the most part untouched throughout the decades, renovation work carried out on the interior in the years 1958/1959 and 1971/1972 which involved extensive change had a major effect on the original work of Art Nouveau.
General refurbishment work carried out from 1999 - 2001 succeeded in significantly restoring the original image of the Large and Small Halls. This went a long way to re-capturing the air of splendour and quality once secured through the work of art now lost.
The old stage machinery underwent rareplacement and the stage area and foyer were rearranged and extended. The Large Hall received movable platforms to accommodate multi-level seating.
