The programme of the WABE has a musical focus that ranges from rock music to jazz to classical music, from children's to senior citizens' events, from concert readings to radio plays to theatre productions and from dance events to dance performances. In addition, the WABE is increasingly available during the day as a conference venue or rehearsal room. The WABE is located in the cultural area of the Ernst-Thälmann-Park. With its a capacity of up to 400 visitors it is the largest municipal event hall in the Pankow district. The multi-functionality of the hall and the octagonal recess in the middle make WABE surprising with a wide variety of artistic projects and activities; about 170 varied events attract an audience far beyond the district every year.
