Amerikahaus Munich: What's new after the renovation?

Der Karolinensaal im Amerikahaus
Herbert Stolz

Since 2016, the Amerikahaus underwent extensive renovation. The interior, especially, has changed a lot. The former theater hall is now a highly modern multifunctional hall, which can also be used for concerts and cinema screenings.

On the first floor, there is now the Karolinensaal with a fantastic view of the Karolinenplatz - as the name suggests.

What's the history behind the house?

The Amerikahaus was founded after the Second World War in 1946 - at that time with the aim of promoting the democratization of the German society after the Nazi dictatorship. In 1957, it moved to its premises at Karolinenplatz. The institution's current focus is on promoting transatlantic relations.
