Since the WerkStadt was founded in an abandoned pharmacy in the summer of 2008 we have had events of all kind including concerts, theater, poetry slams, silent disco, lectures, meetings, and of course wild parties.
During the Covid-19 lockdowns we were busy renovating that abandoned pharmacy for the umpteenth time... this time with a small stage. We are always looking for new event formats so please contact us if you are looking for somewhere to experiment and find an audience.
