Kammer 1 (Schauspielhaus)
Formerly known as "the fairy palace", the Deutsches Museum in Munich is an epitome of musical and artistic displays. The magnificent spectacle was built in the late 18th century and has played host to some of the world's greatest performers. The likes of Erni Singerl, Beppo Brem, Karl Valentine and the Tiller Girls have all made appearances at the theater. Classical showcases like "West side story" and even some major Broadway hits have made their way to the Deutsches theater at some point. They have lots of shows in English, so you have nothing to worry about. The theater hosts about 300,000 visitors annually and its shows are a must-see for residents and those visiting Munich for the first time! See more information on Deutsches Theater programmes here!

Just have a look regularly at the schedule of Pasinger Fabrik and you might end up enjoying a most hilarious evening.
