Historic Baths turned into a boutique hotel

Historic Baths

Under monument protection

The historic baths - now converted into a boutique hotel - are the most spectacular buildings on the GLS campus: a Berlin landmark under monument protection.

This landmark building of historic significance offers a gorgeous setting for your event.

The historic Pool-hall

Especially the cathedral-like pool hall is an absolutely spectacular event location for galas, concerts, parties, photo sessions, weddings and press conferences.

A hydraulic lifting platform will make you walk on water, you can meet, dance, celebrate on water ...

The technical equipment is excellent, with WiFi and audio-visual systems.

Hotel Oderberger

The wings flanking the historic pool hall accommodate Hotel Oderberger, one of the finest boutique hotels in Berlin.
