The ziegelei101 in Munich is the ideal setting for events of a special kind. Situated within a media hub in northern Munich, this former film production studio hosts events of all shapes and sizes. Its impressive exterior and charming interior guarantee a unique conference experience.
Upon entering the site of the ziegelei101 – located in close proximity to Munich’s famous English Garden and the pretty river Isar – one is struck by its extraordinary architecture. The huge 1940s building is made of bright red bricks, which still ooze the charm of a vanished industrial era. The contrast with the interior couldn’t be more striking. Within this great building, the different sections (the main two sized 980 m2 and 240m2 opportunities. The space is both modern and simple at the same time, yet always impressive. The ceiling is 7m high with windows almost filling the entire walls; this makes the location feel truly vast and full of light. Due to the special construction of the roof, the space can be divided up in many possible ways. And if the warm Munich weather allows, there is a roofed patio that can be used for breaks and receptions.
Kai Dette, director of the agency that represents ziegelei101, summarises the appeal of the space as follows: “Customers appreciate the infinite possibilities of the ziegelei101. The high ceilings, the presence of light and the flexible construction of the roof allow for a plethora of different uses. The variability of the two big lofts and the smaller eventbox make the ziegelei101 a location with an ever changing character.” One of the place’s highlights can be witnessed in the dark only: a spectacular lighting system can illuminate the outside of the building in any colour desired.
Recently, the ziegelei101 has come up with a new idea: clients are now offered assistance in the planning and implementation of the perfect event, should they be in need of creative suggestions. With all these innovative forces at play, it is perhaps no surprise that the ziegelei101 won the second prize of the Location Award 2013 for the category of ‘newcomer’. Crucial for the jury was the location’s juxtaposition of old and new and its prevailing elegance. And certainly, events held here are not just ordinary events; thanks to the very special atmosphere they become highly memorable experiences in their own right.
