Welcome to the Hansa Studios
The legendary Hansa Studio is located in the heart of Berlin, directly on Potsdamer Platz. In a Berlin office building, built in 1912, brilliant recordings have been made since the early sixties from countless artists like David Bowie, Depeche Mode, U2, R.E.M., Peter Maffay, Nina Hagen and Udo Jürgens. As times changed, so did the Hansa Studio and in the nineties the decision was made to reduce the number of studios. Today, one can produce music in the active Studio 1 with recording studio space of ca. 200 sq m. that is flooded with daylight and equipped with classic analogue and digital equipment. Surrounded by singular music history, the spirit of hits from past decades and the typical recording studio charm of the seventies.
A team of first-class engineers and assistants will accompany you.
Because of the connection to the famous Meistersaal, the former Hansa Studio 2, (Hall by the Wall), it is still possible to use its exceptional acoustics for recordings today.
