Banquet: Clärchen's Ballhaus
TL;DR: Clärchen’s Ballhaus (Auguststraße 24/25, 10117 Berlin) at 6pm on June 8th
The banquet at ECOOP 2022 will take us back into the heart of Berlin’s history. We will dine at Clärchen’s Ballhaus which was founded in 1913 as a “Ballhaus” - a dancing establishment for the common people. It is one of the last remaining ballhouses from the era and if the walls could talk… The ball house remained open as a private establishment during the division of Berlin. This was unusual as it is located in the eastern part of Berlin where establishments were usually state run. After a short slumber following reunification it was reopened and to this day its schedule features dancing lessons and balls.
We will dine in the historic Spiegelsaal (The Hall of Mirrors) on the evening of Wednesday, June 8th 2022. Its historic charm is actually protected by German law (“Denkmalschutz” - Cultural Heritage Protections).
Doors will open at 6pm. Served dinner will start at 7pm.

Walking: It’s a beautiful 45 - 60min walks along many of Berlin’s historical sites like the Brandenburg Gate, The Reichstag (parliament building), the Spree river, and/or Unter den Linden (with the Adlon Hotel).
Public transport: It’s a 5 minute ride plus 8-10 min to and from the stations, 15-20 min in total. From Potsdamer Platz S-Bahn Station (S+U Potsdamer Platz Bhf) take the S1 (direction Frohnau), S2 (direction Bernau), or S26 (direction Waidmanslust) train to Oranienburger Straße (S Oranienburger Str.). From there it’s a 4 minute walk just around the corner.
Cab/Uber: It should take approx. 15 mins. All the drivers know this location… It’s been around longer than they are. :) In case just give them the address from above an in doubt say it’s in “Mitte”.
