Classical theatre in the Schauspielhaus

Among the smaller theatres, the Theater an der Luegallee in Oberkassel has made a name for itself. The Forum Freies Theater independent theatre presents extremely varied and unconventional material in both of its facilities on Jahnstraße and Kasernenstraße. In the middle of the city centre in an old, renovated cinema, the Savoy Theater regular welcomes greats from cabaret and chanson.
