“The Globe” Theatre – Shakespeare in German

One of the most unexpected attractions of Neuss is situated on the territory of the local hippodrome. This unusual building from wood and steel with 12 angles – black and white blinders – is the exact replica of the old British theatre “The Globe”. The original was built on the bank of the Thames in 1599 and earned its fame for the first shows of Shakespeare’s plays, who was the co-owner of the theatre and also played on stage. A copy of the theatre appeared in Neuss in 1991. The building seats over 500 spectators.

Seats are located in three semi-circles so that nobody sits farther than 10 m from the stage. Each summer the theatre hosts the Shakespeare Festival. During June and July theatre companies from different countries come to Neuss to show their versions of legendary Shakespeare plays.
