Richard Riemerschmid |main architect


This building, imagined by the son of a spirits producer and planned by architect Max Littmann, has been home to the Intimate Theatre since 1926. Its façade in a neo-Gothic style contrasts with the discreet interior and floral motifs designed by Richard Riemerschmid, which constitutes a spatial work of art of the Jugendstil. The layout as a studio theatre is perfectly suited for intimate plays. If you wonder what a festival hall designed by the same architect might look like, you can find the answer just a few streets away in the Prince Regent theatre (Prinzregententheater).
