Exhibitions and Galleries

Numerous events take place in the charming brick building. Whether concerts, readings or lectures in the historic rooms or open-air cinema and festivals in the enchanting garden. International and regional exhibitions can be seen in the gallery rooms. The listed remise houses a printing workshop. Open Tue - Sun 11 am - 6 pm.

The two-story brick building in Schelfstadt is part of one of Schwerin's most attractive historic districts. The name of this cultural institution goes back to a grant provided by the state of Schleswig-Holstein for the renovation of the building in accordance with its status as a historic monument. Its convenient central location makes the house a sought-after venue for cultural, political and social exchange.

It shows fine art in changing exhibitions. Numerous associations, institutions and committed organizers use the premises for discussion forums on current or historical topics from all areas of social life and as an artistic platform. The program is aimed at young and old. Recently, the historic remise in the atmospheric garden has been home to a printing workshop, where guided tours and workshops are held for those interested.

During the summer months, the charming garden is incorporated into the event program. Whether it's an atmospheric concert under the trees, the new summer film festival "Kino unterm Himmel" (Cinema under the Sky), for example, in a deck chair with a glass of wine, or relaxing after a tour of the exhibition, the green old town oasis offers a special atmosphere. Thus, the house is also a popular place for civil weddings.

Opening hours:
from Tuesday to Sunday 11.00 - 18.00 o'clock
