  Concert House in Karlsruhe
by Nemorino
 
 

While I was riding around Karlsruhe late at night on a CallBike I came across this attractive classical Concert House, which I had somehow overlooked on previous visits.

It turns out to be part of the Karlsruhe Convention and Exhibition Center (KKA), where it is used for concerts, lectures and conferences, as well as theater, ballet and musical performances.

The Concert House was originally built from 1913 to 1915, but soon after completion it was taken over for use as a military hospital during the First World War. Later it was used for a while as a movie theater, among other things. It was damaged by bombs during the Second World War.

After many years of makeshift repairs, the Concert House was finally closed for two years starting in 1992 for a total refurbishment and modernization.
