This is an old theatre that has been occupied as a squat for years. It is right in the heart of St Pauli. It has been the site of an almost constant battle between the inhabitants and the local council. However, recently a private philanthropist resolved the argument by buying the building from the council and giving it to the squatters. The squatters have now turned it into a public space that gets used for parties, public meetings and activist get togethers.
