The Rathenauhallen are the vision of a famous Berlin engineer, named Emil Rathenau. Having seen the lightbulbs of Thomas Edison at the Electricity Fair in Paris, he secured the rights and introduced the bulbs to Germany, which proved to be a great success!
In order to use the modern lights, people needed electricity which Emil delivered. He founded Berlin's first Startup, the AEG, right here, in these halls and grew it to world-wide success.
The former transformer factory started as the birthplace of electricity for Berlin. Today, these halls continue to be a hub for progress, as home to large scale events, like yours.
