For several years now I've been going to Tigerpalast about once a year (which means I don't get to see all shows, since the performers change twice a year). It's enjoyable every time. The programme is very diverse, in the best sense of the word "variety": They do a very good job at putting together diverse acts such as acrobatics... More

This is not a cheap night out but a very enjoyable one. We were taken by friends & it was a very entertaining night. The food was fantastic. The staff were all very good & very friendly.

Brilliant spectacular entertainment, A Variety of acts that amaze and entertain from the first minute. We could not decide which we liked best; trapeze for the energy and skill, or the clown or the strong duo. All were outstanding. Would love to return as I hear they change the acts frequently

Tigerpalast has been in Frankfurt for decades. It is unusually expensive (about €75, depending on whether you go on a weekend or weekday) per person, and anything you order to eat or drink is unusually expensive for the area. An example is a 0.75 liter carafe of wine is over €40 (for one of the cheapies). Main Courses are over... More

After having dinner in the catacombs of Tigerpalast, we attended the show. What a deception! Even though the band was quite good, this couldn't save the appalling performances of which the magicien was the most disturbing one. I am somebody who laughs easily but this show was a joke. Many of the other performances were mediocre at best. Palazzo has... More

I am not a fan of such shows but I must say that I enjoyed most of the acts on that evening. the only thing that bothered me were the lousy seating conditions. we booked way in advance, the fancy package with dinner, but at the end we got the seats just below the stage with no leg room. at...

Aside from the emcee, the acts don't rely on language, so non-German speakers are encouraged to attend. Also, when you get tickets online, look for a discount. I got discounted tickets and sat closest to the stage! Lots of fun.

An evening I thoroughly enjoyed. This is a variety act of over 10 acts from all over the world and it last over 2 hrs. The theater is easy to find and it has a small capacity. Seating is very cosy. Overpriced drinks and food are served before and during the show. I don't speak any German and there was... More

Actual current show with some excellent performers as the trapeze duo plus a brilliant English speaking MC, some others though were average or below average. Programm though changes a few times a year, even if you watch the show twice with the same title you may not get the same artists. Actual location is nice in size, rather small, max... More
