I had a very prompt response from Thomas and overall a great experience. The space is pretty decent and had good arrangements for the photoshoot as was needed in my case. Will definitely recommend.
Great facilities for a private party where music and good sound and a warm ambience is important. Everything I needed Thomas had tucked away. Will definitely use Kunstraum again.
If self-catering note you’ll need to bring plates, glasses etc. We did and it was fine.
Excellent space, very well-equipped! Thomas was incredibly friendly and helpful with set-up, will absolutely come here and use this space again.
The location is perfect, Thomas is very helpful and friendly. Our event had held successfully and the guests are very pleased.
