WESTWERK is on the buzzing Karl-Heine-Street in the west of Leipzig. The former industrial area, located directly at the König-Albert-Brücke on the Karl Heine Canal, dates back to the 19th century. The current offers are varied, with exhibitions, markets and music and gastronomic events. Theatre, continuing education and other events are held here and artists, retailers, clubs and musicians find their way here. Collective work is at the heart of the activities at WESTWERK.
