【DE】Modernization of the Karlsruhe Stadthalle on course

Finish start and start of trial operation at the beginning of 2025


Karlsruhe, 11/18/2022 – “There are no deviations in the construction schedule and we are within the agreed budget,” First Mayor Gabriele Luczak-Schwarz informed the members of the accompanying committee Stadthalle on 11.11. 2022. All major trades are also expected to be awarded by the end of 2022.


“The modernization of the Stadthalle, which is the heart of the Karlsruhe Congress Center, is going according to plan again,” says Britta Wirtz, Managing Director of Messe Karlsruhe. After the partial dismantling of the construction site to make room for the meeting of the World Council of Churches and the reorientation of the planning under the leadership of the overall planner SSP AG, the modernization of the hall can now pick up speed again – with the planned finish at the end of 2024.


The handover to Messe Karlsruhe is then planned seamlessly. Holger Klanfer, Head of Division Congress & Cultural Events at Messe Karlsruhe, sees a transitional period: “We will initially have a kind of “test run” with non-public and also smaller public formats until the summer of 2025. For this start-up phase, we will work with redundancies to guarantee the implementation of planned events. My team and I are very happy to be able to market the hall again and are well prepared for it.”


The city of Karlsruhe and Karlsruher Messe- und Kongress GmbH are confident that the Stadthallen director has settled after the first few months and that the congress, conference and event hall will then be fit for regular operation. The Stadthalle can then position itself again with all its possibilities as an inner-city location on the congress market and in the city.


In December 2021, the municipal council approved this reorientation of the planning with a focus on sustainability and a total expenditure of 135.42 million euros as part of the budget consultation 2022/2023.


Sustainability in planning and construction in the context of renovation is an integral part of this: For example, the use of geothermal energy for cooling and heating as a hybrid concept, the occupancy of the two roof levels with photovoltaics and the installation of highly efficient technical systems. This leads to significant energy savings on the one hand and a significant CO2 reduction on the other.
