We are located at the extraordinary and internationally unique Funkhaus complex, adjacent to the Spree and overlooking the Planterwald. The Funkhaus exudes a creative magic which puts a smile on the face of every musician, DJ, sound engineer, producer, filmmaker, artist, actor, performer or creative media maker who walks through the door. 

Our facilities are built with one thing in mind. Maximising ‘hands on’ access to DOING what you love. That means more studios, equipment and facility than all of our Berlin competitors put together!

The Funkhaus complex houses a wide range of creative industry spaces and practitioners including two world class recording halls, large scale live venues, clubs, recording studios, visual artists, regular TV and film location shooting, music festivals and our own internationally unique education and training facility. Recent acts involved at the Funkhaus include Nils Frahm, Aphex Twin, Alt J, Depeche Mode, Kendrick Lamar, Bon Iver, LCD Sound System and many more.
