The first Beethovenhalle was a temporary structure built in 1845 during the inauguration of the Beethoven Monument, located in the M├╝nsterplatz. The second hall was built in 1870 for centennial celebration of Beethoven's birth. It was also wood with a stucco Neoclassical fa├žade and a rectangular auditorium. The interior contained galleries along the side walls and could accommodate 1,500 people. During the next several years, the hall not only hosted concerts, but also poetry readings, boxing matches, charity bazaars, the Oberammergau Passion Play and gatherings for the Nazi Party. The hall was destroyed on October 18, 1944, during a World War II bombing raid. (Wikipedia)
