Malkasten

Event Location Contact

As an “Association for social artist life” the Malkasten artist association was founded in 1848. Since sociability and art have always been booming in Rhineland, the community grew rapidly and soon played a central role in the cultural life of the city. And that has been so until today: Concerts, readings and exhibitions take place in the rooms of the Jacobihaus and the Hentrich building, while the adjoining park extends invitations to summer festivities. And all in a relaxed atmosphere. In the meantime, the members are not just recruited from among artists, but generally from “friends of art”. In addition, the Malkasten now also opens its doors to corporate events and conferences. For example, there is the large theatre room, the beautiful terrace overlooking the park, but also different smaller rooms and the artists' cellar which are available.
