Without a doubt, the city’s most dynamic and cheerful area is the Kultfabrik, a true Mecca for those who love dancing, listening to live music, enjoying a beer and having fun. Once a key industrial area, today it is a major manufacturer of entertainment and culture. Over a surface of 60,000 sqm, there is a succession of discos, private clubs, bars, restaurants, cinemas, concert halls, recording studios and exposition spaces for young artists. Every month, these venues welcome around 300,000 people and the energy they generate has changed the face of these cold and Spartan buildings, turning them into a multipurpose complex, a true highlight of the city.
