"Theaterklause" (Theatre Retreat) Zimmerstrasse
Address: Zimmerstraße 10-11, 14471 Potsdam
The "Theaterklause" was something of an institution for staff members and guests of the Hans-Otto-Theatre alike. All that remains in the bright, airy café, which opened in 2017 are the folding doors of the parlour that were built into the bar. The theatre has moved on. In its place there's a newly created, bright clinker-built architectural complex bringing together for the first times the various workshops and archives of the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation such as the painting and textile restoration, the photo workshop, the scientific laboratory and various collections. About 10,000 sq m of floor space are now available to all departments, which had previously been scattered over a great number of different locations.
