Kulturzentrum Tollhaus


TOLLHAUS is a sociocultural centre in Karlsruhe, Germany staging 250 - 300 events per year. Its two halls have capacities of 450 (seated) or 700 (standing) in the smaller hall and 850 (seated) or 1,300 (standing) in the larger hall. During summer TOLLHAUS organizes a series called ZELTIVAL with approximately 30 concerts.

In 2016 we also founded the ATOLL festival for contemporary circus which takes place during five days in September each year at and around the centre.

Our program offers a wide range of events ranging from pop and rock concerts to dance theatre and comedy.

TOLLHAUS is located at the „Alter Schlachthof“ and old slaughterhouse area that is being developed into a cultural and creative precinct by the city council of Karlsruhe and currently is home to many start-ups, designers, music venues and other companies from the creative industries.
