The building itself is a closed down heat plant that was bought by private investors over 15 years ago to be repurposed as a high quality venue that brings arts, music, events, cuisine and stunning architecture together. BERGSON is home to the largest gallery of visual arts in Germany and has several rooms and spaces to present and create music in. With a daily changing schedule, culture lovers of all ages can enjoy loads of music, extraordinary artists and new formats.
