Peter Ahrweiler (born January 6, 1915 in Krefeld ; † September 3, 2004 in Hamburg ) was a German actor and theater director.


After the war, Ahrweiler began as a cabaret artist , took over the management of the small private theater Kleine Komödie in Hamburg in 1953 and thus remained a permanent fixture in the Hamburg theater landscape. Appearances in film (including 1956 in Der Hauptmann von Köpenick with Heinz Rühmann , 1956 in Drei Birken auf der Heide or 1980 in Udo Lindenberg's Panische Zeiten ) and television made him known to a nationwide audience. In 1994 he had to close his non-subsidized stage and then played for a few years at the Schleswig-Holstein State Theater . He probably had his last TV appearance in 1996 in an episode of Evelyn Hamann's Adelheid and their murderers . He died on September 3, 2004 after a long and serious illness. He found his final resting place in the Ohlsdorf cemetery in Hamburg.
