The hall without barriers has a height of eleven meters and two entrances as well as six emergency exits. Due to the generous window surfaces a lot of daylight brightens the rooms. The floor is equipped with tiles and screed, an external heating installation can be used with pleasure. Next rooms as cloakroom and for the catering are available.
