Kindl Centre for Contemporary Art


The rambling 1920s Expressionst-style Kindl brewery provides an atmospheric backdrop for changing international contemporary art exhibits, which are presented on three floors of the former powerhouse and in the boiler house, whose cathedral-like space is ideal for large-scale installations. Afterwards, chill over coffee, a plant-based Mediterranean meal or a craft beer from the on-site brewery in the adjacent König Otto restaurant.
