FAQ on the Gasteig Move

Answers to Important Questions About the Move

Did you know?

Gasteig is moving to Sendling!

Since October 2021, the largest art centre in Europe will be based at Hans-Preißinger-Straße 8 in Sendling as Gasteig HP8. The Gasteig will spend the next few years at its interim premises until the renovation of Rosenheimer Str. 5 is finished.

How will the Gasteig move affect you?
Read on for answers to important questions.

After being in operation for more than 30 years, much of the technical equipment in the Gasteig has reached the end of its average service life. Replacing it is essential if we are to continue to operate safely. The renovation is also an opportunity to make sure that the largest arts centre in Europe is ready for the future. As the building has to be completely empty to complete the work as quickly as possible and to minimise its impact on local residents, the Gasteig will move into interim premises in Sendling for the duration under the name Gasteig HP8.

Since the opening of the new Isar Philharmonic Hall in October 2021 and the associated Hall E and the event rooms Projektor and Hall X, many areas of the Gasteig have already moved to their new interim home, including the Munich City Library. By autumn 2022, the entire Gasteig, including the Munich Adult Education Centre, will have moved out of the main building. Then the entire Gasteig programme will be presented at the interim premises in Sendling, where it will be as broad and diverse as ever.

All the Gasteig partner organisations – the Munich Philharmonic, the Munich City Library, the Münchner Volkshochschule (Munich Community College), the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich and the Gasteig München GmbH – will move to Sendling at various points between now and the end of March 2022. The Munich Chamber Orchestra will also join Gasteig HP8 as a new partner organisation.

The final events at the Gasteig Philharmonic Hall in Munich have been held in July 2021. Some of the programme is still taking place on other Gasteig stages eg the Carl Orff Hall and the Small Concert Hall. Up-to-date programme information on all Gasteig events – in Haidhausen as well as in Gasteig HP8 – is available here.

The Munich Philharmonic marked the opening of the new Isarphilharmonie with a celebratory concert on 8 October 2021 and since provides surprising moments with new concert formats in the Gasteig HP8. For further information, visit the website of the Munich Philharmonic.

The City Library opened its doors at Gasteig HP8 in October, focusing on music, lifelong learning and languages. The second location at Gasteig Motorama (on the other side of Rosenheimer Straße, directly opposite the Gasteig) opened on 26 November as a family library with a games area. Both library locations will be open to users from 7 AM to 11 PM daily, including at weekends. For comprehensive information and answers to a wide range of questions on how the move will affect library users, visit the website of the Munich City Library in the Gasteig (in German language).

The Münchner Volkshochschule (MVHS) will move to Gasteig HP8 in autumn 2022, so its wide range of courses will continue in the usual Gasteig areas until then. To give you something to look forward to, the MVHS will have several new facilities at Gasteig HP8, including a goldsmith’s workshop. All the information on the courses available can be found in one place at www.mvhs.de.

Since March 1, 2022 the ticket office in the Gasteig Haidhausen is closed. From now on, you will find the central ticket office on the ground floor of the Hall E in Gasteig HP8. Opening hours: Monday to Sunday from 10:00 to 20:00. For details of other advance booking offices and opening hours, visit www.muenchenticket.de.

How much longer will catering be open at Gasteig Haidhausen?

You can still visit »Babà« in the Glass Hall until spring 2022.

The underground car park will remain open until further noctice. It may also close if necessary for the renovation work. We will give you plenty of notice if this happens.

Once the Münchner Volkshochschule moves out in autumn 2022, the Gasteig in Haidhausen will close its doors until the renovation is finished. For all the information and visions for the New Gasteig, visit this website (German). During the renovation, you can get your culture fix from A to Z at Gasteig HP8. Interesting and useful information about the interim premises in Sendling is available here.

By public transport
From Marienplatz to the Brudermühlstraße underground station (U3) is only around seven minutes and the Isarphilharmonie is then just under a six-minute walk (400 metres). The 54 and X 30 buses have a direct connection with the underground system at Brudermühlstraße (U3) and Candidplatz (U1).

By bike
Gasteig HP8 is around 15 minutes on average by bike from the city centre and we heartily recommend the nearby Isarradweg cycle path. Gasteig HP8 has plenty of bike parking.

By car
Concert shuttles will run between the car park and the Isarphilharmonie for visitors who arrive by car. The Blumengroßmarkt (flower wholesale market, around 1.1 km from Gasteig HP8) has a car park with around 190 spaces.
