Kunstraum is located in a residential area so we have strict curfew hours (Monday-Thursay 10pm; Friday-Saturday 11pm; Sunday 8pm) and we ask event organisers to make sure their guests vacate the surrounding area after this time to prevent disturbance to our neighbours. For film and photo shoots you can continue working until midnight.

In order to ensure Kunstraum is a safe space for the public, for all events we ask that hosts have a designated person in charge of the the door and a plan in place to deal with any security situations in case they arise.

Community Contract:
We ask everyone who uses Kunstraum to agree to our community contract which holds that: To join Kunstraum’s community you must respect all of its members; this community rejects all forms of discrimination, including racism, sexism/ misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and discrimination of class, religion, belief or age.

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.
