Freiheitshalle Hof

The fair and event center of High Franconia (northeastern part of Upper Franconia)

The Hofer Freiheitshalle and its TV shows: probably every important host of a TV show – from Thomas Gottschalk to Harald Schmidt, from Hans Rosenthal to Peter Frankenfeld and Joachim Kuhlenkampff to Carolin Reiber and Carmen Nebel – has invited their huge fan base in front of their screens to Hof.

An extraordinary appearance, an elaborate and generous space concept, modern and versatile functionality, a high and sustainable quality standard – are complemented by a growing tradition and experience of many years. Organizers and guests profit likewise from the Freiheitshalle. A professional and efficient hall management, first class service as well as reliable and flexible partners for catering and in the hotel industry add to the success of every event.

Having become famous primarily due to regular TV productions of big broadcasting stations, the Freiheitshalle Hof has so far lured ca. 250 events and about 300 visitors to Hof every year. Numerous big events, concerts and TV productions like “Wetten, dass..?” or “Verstehen Sie Spaß?” – spread the name of the hall within Germany and carried it outside of national borders. The Freiheitshalle was closed in 2009, after more than 35 years of operation time, renovated on a large scale and expanded by a new building. The Freiheitshalle was reopened in the fall of 2012.

Situated where Thuringia, Saxony, Bohemia and Bavaria meet, Hof is easily reachable by train and by car from all directions due to its connection to the Autobahn A9, A93 and A72. Numerous sights and leisure time activities create a proper supporting program and round off the event in the Freiheitshalle. The Freiheitshalle, with a capacity of up to 6.100 persons, is the biggest venue of the region and an ideal place for events in Bavaria.

The space allows individual use as a modern and vivid event center for different types of events and stands out due to the possibility that there could be more events at once or a single event in both halls. The directly adjoining hotel Central adds an important aspect thus covering all the important areas of the event business; they can all be reached via short ways. Ca 500 parking spaces are available on site.
