Volkshaus Pegau

Short facts

Since 2004, fairs, concerts and numerous other events have been taking place in the Pegau Volkshaus.

Since 2004, the completely renovated Volkshaus has been used as a community centre for a variety of events. Meetings of the Pegau carneval club, fairs, music and bigger events by all the local nurseries take place there. In addition to the West Saxon Symphony Orchestra, symphonic orchestras and choirs from England, the US and Japan rehearse there before performing at the Leipzig Gewandhaus. Whether for women's day, travesty shows or Oktoberfest, the 350 seats in the foyer, parquet or the gallery are quickly fully booked. Also found here are the Saxon cabaret elites including the Academixer, Pfeffermühle, Sanftwut etc.
Constructed in 1553/54, the building housed the Pegau boys 'school until 1835 and then the girls' school until 1869. This was followed by a conversion to a restaurant with a newly built hall. As a public exchange hall, the Deutsches Haus and the Volkshaus, the traditional building lived through varied times.

Both the foyer and the Great Hall of the Volkshaus Pegau are disability accessible.
For your private event, you can rent the entire house or just the foyer or the small hall. For events in the large hall, a professional sound and lighting system is available.
