The cultural center in the heart of Dresden

On April 28, 2017, the completely modernized Kulturpalast reopened at the Altmarkt in Dresden. Located in Saxony’s capital, the new cultural center enthuses its guests and matches the international standards of Dresden A house of arts and knowledge, a meeting place, a room for communication: the new Kulturpalast Dresden points to the future.

The newly designed concert hall is the heart of the building. With excellent acoustics and distinctive architecture, it forms the musical center of the city and is the "first address" for local and guest performances. The new city library surrounds this center. It combines knowledge, education and experience in a modern library environment and defines the new and welcoming character of the Kulturpalast. Yet another attraction, well known throughout Germany, is the Cabaret "Die Herkuleskeule", which creates entertaining contrasts. The spacious foyer connects all institutions and rooms with each other and invites you to stroll, linger, and savour the Kulturpalast experience.
