Why buy when you can borrow?

In the Erfindergarden tool library (Werkzeugbibliothek), you can borrow good tools, ladders, trailers and beer garden bench-and-table sets for a small rental fee. Simply reserve the tool you need, or even a 3D printer, on the Erfindergarden website and collect or return it on a Tuesday at the PIXEL. The Munich City Library also has a range of DIY books and media for loan. A selection of these is available in the tool library.

Three good reasons for using the tool library

Save money

In the Erfindergarden tool library, you can borrow tools and other items for only 1 to 3 euros a day, exactly when you need them. You can keep the items for up to one week, letting you complete your work without having to buy a new tool for just the one project.

Save resources

Sharing means less mining of precious raw materials, less production, transport, packaging and scrap.

Save space

There are only few tools and other items in our homes that we actually need on a daily basis. So why not get rid of those rarely used items and just borrow what we need.

Important: Before your visit, please find out about the currently applicable hygiene regulations for visitors of the PIXEL and observe them during your visit.
