Concert and sport venue - slightly aged
May 2019
The Max Schmeling Halle is well connected to the public transportation system so you don't need your car. There are no parking lots avaiabe anyway so save your time and nerves. Inside the venue the grandstands are very steep the higher you get. This enables a good view but this can be scary for some people. Prices and quality of food and drinks offered (you can not bring your own stuff of course) are as you may expect. High and low. You can smell the food all over the place because the stalls are inside the arena. What are the athletes thinking if the smell French fries and Currywurst during warm up...? In my opinion there are not enough toilets so you need to walk quite a while. The ladies rooms are extra-extra large which is an asset but they are also a long way to go to. The plain interior looks a bit worn out so I guess there was little refurbishment during the last 23 years. Everything is a bit bearish. Seats are quite uncomfortable. For a concert standing is the much better option anyway... There are personal lockers available near the entrances where you can store your stuff savely. Very good! However they cost you 2€ every time you open it up. So think carefully before closing or have enough 2€ coins. The sound during the concert was perfect for support and mai and act. Evacuation after the concert was very easy and fast. However he there were no sings leading you to the public transport so make sure you know where you are heading to. In my opinion the illumination around the arena is too less.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.

Absolute fantastic venue for a concert
Nov 2018 • Solo
This place has the right size, a civilised entry procedure, food and drinks everywhere - and still holds a lot of people. Is not as huge as the O2 Arena but still big enough for A1 bands that attract a lot of people. The Black Eyed Peas concert was just extraordinary, with all the songs from "Where is the love" to "I gotta feeling"...Only gripes: No Fergie (but at least a good surrogate) and the loudspeakers are really really loud if you are in the front (but who cares if you have such a view?). Getting to the venue is civilised too, without any traffic jams taking hours.

I was here for a gig, simple review.

Easy to find, close to U-Bahn, friendly & efficient staff, great view, great acoustics.

Lots of local bars for pre/post-gig.

Fantastic venue except for one thing.

Went to Berlin recycling volleys match. The stadium is very clean and modern. The only downside is that you cannot bring a big backpack inside for security reasons. Instead you have to leave it at a garderobe for 2 euros. Its not a lot, but it's definitely not the most ideal way of spending your 2 euros. You can't avoid the thought of the arena management trying to squeeze few more coins out of the customers. Otherwise its a superb venue all around.

If you are planning to visit Max-Schehling-Halle do that during a game of Füchsen Berlin! The games are really interestaing, with special sounds and lights! Even if you don't like handball so much you will enjoy! Ask for a sit when you buy the tickets, the cheaper one is to see the game standing in the corredors.
