Alte Kesselschmiede

The Kesselschmiede (Old boilermakers hall) welcomes you in a historic industrial ambience on the grounds of the old shipyard and inspires as a special event location with its industrial charm. With an area of 826 sqm, it is ideal for large events, concerts, exhibitions, markets, gala evenings, performances, conferences and rustic lunches or dinners. The gallery in the Kesselschmiede can also be used and has an area of 220 sqm. The room has direct daylight but cannot be darkened. The entire Kesselschmiede, except for the gallery, is barrier-free.

The hall owes its special flair to its history: the steam boilers for the ships of the Meyer shipyard were once manufactured here. Colloquially, the Kesselschmiede was called "The Tent of Stone", as it was once only built to provide protection from the weather. In this extraordinary and historic atmosphere, every event becomes an unforgettable experience.
