Banquet

19:30

TIPI Zelt am Kanzleramt (TIPI Tent at the Chancellors’ Office)
Where turn-of-the-century Berliners once enjoyed themselves “In the Tents“, in the middle of the leafy Tiergarten park, stands the TIPI. This sophisticated canvas theatre, right next to the Chancellors’ Office, is the ideal venue for this outstanding evening. The tent is an architectural joy and provides a unique view of the Reichstag.
This year’s Annual Meeting Banquet will take place in Berlin’s well known ‘TIPI Tent’ located in the middle of the Tiergarden park, a lush garden situated in the heart of the city. This unique ‘Tent’ is a chic canvas theatre, and was a centre for entertainment in turn-of-the-century Berlin.

While dining, you will enjoy an exceptional programme of entertainment appropriate to this tradition.

address: Grosse Querallee, 10557 Berlin
(Bus 100 or M85, S-Bahn: Hauptbahnhof or Brandenburger Tor, U-Bahn: U55 Bundestag)

Watch out for Blond Women

Berlin was famous for its Cabaret style entertainment during the 1920s, and Elke Kottmair will exilerate you back into this golden era with her high-energy musical cabaret Watch out for Blond Women.
Whether as a silly film star, a lascivious vamp, a cocky girl or a scolding cleaning lady, Elke Kottmair will quickly change costumes and roles, while at the same time demonstrating both vocally and dramatically that from a polished Belcanto Sopran performance to a suspiciously sounding comical routine, no limits are set.
She will be accompanied by the pianist Denette Whitter, a musician who will not only set criteria while at the piano.

Neurological Magician

For those who have their doubts, neurologists do perform magic. Proof of this statement lies in the sorcery of Reinhard Hohlfeld, Munich. He is one of the speakers of the Presidential Symposium, and will also entertain you during the Banquet with an exciting range of magical performances.

World-Famous Break Dance Group

During the Banquet you will also be entertained by the world champions in Break Dancing, Ersen Shaliani, Mentor Shalijani and their dancing group.
They will increase the action and excitement on the stage of the TIPI Tent.

€ 95.–
