The Tschaikowsky-Saal is the central hall in the building of the same name, located near the trade fair and opened in December 2014. The name of the great Russian composer reflects the centre’s purpose and commitment: it is a meeting place in which living culture can be nurtured and a dialogue conducted between German and Russian culture. The hall is suitable for instrumental and vocal concerts by small ensembles, as well as for seminars and exhibitions.
