HKW is closed until the end of 2016 and is now Out and About with projects in Berlin, Hamburg and Munich. Following our reopening in January 2017, collaborative projects will also take us to New York, Düsseldorf, Dresden, Zürich and other cities.
Initial modernization work commenced in May 2016. Wassermusik will be held on the roof terrace and in the restaurant. The building will remain closed on days when no events are scheduled. The Auster restaurant will remain open throughout.
