The fireworks planned for New Year ’s Day at 3am will mark the end of the Kultfabrik era behind the Ostbahnhof in Munich. The Kultfabrik ground was home to many events in its 13 years of existence. But there’s no reason to mourn it. At the Kultfabrik grounds and the surrounding area a whole new city district will be developed, and culture and clubbing will remain the focus of the area.
The new district will be named Werksvietel. The heart of the Werksviertel will be the WERK3, the first of the former industrial buildings that will be put to new use. It will be completely renovated and used as lofts, offices, artist studios, galleries and for flagship stores of renowned fashion brands. The WERK3 is expected to be completed by April 2016, works are in progress. There’s also going to be a roof garden and plenty of restaurants and cafes, clubs, an area for open air events and Munich’s new concert hall will also be built here.
