The centre of learning in the Gasteig

The Münchner Volkshochschule adult education centre (MVHS) has always been part of the Gasteig family. As Munich’s further education establishment and Germany’s largest adult education centre, it provides unique cultural and educational offerings that allow people in Munich to participate in and shape culture. It also strengthens social cohesion through educational programmes aimed specifically at older people, through its “Junge Volkshochschule” young adult education centre and through its “Barrierefrei lernen” accessible learning programme for people with disabilities. In addition to its extensive range of courses, the MVHS runs the “Open Academy” – a forum for public discourse.

The MVHS at the Gasteig HP8

The MVHS will open its doors in the Gasteig HP8 from October 2022 and its full range of courses and events will be available in our interim premises. Its classrooms on the upper floors of Building K include a music rehearsal room, a photo studio and darkroom, as well as a dance, relaxation and fitness studio. It also houses the Youth and Education programme, which offers youth projects and courses for catching up on school-leaving qualifications. In the evenings, the MVHS offers a variety of lectures and workshops.

The Aspekte Galerie in the Gasteig HP8

The Aspekte Galerie of the MVHS adult education centre in Hall E regularly presents contemporary art as well as exhibitions that provide insights into artistic design practice.

“I’m blown away by the Gasteig HP8 and the possibilities it offers. We are moving in with tons of ideas and I am sure that we’ll come up with many more once we’ve settled in. This gem of old and new architecture is such a fertile hotbed for discourse, collaboration and inspiration.”
