Although most events taking place at the Gasteig are external productions, there are some programme highlights throughout the year that we put on ourselves. Our aim is to open our doors wide and invite people of all ages and backgrounds to visit the Gasteig and enjoy what we have in store. Our wide range of events offer a great deal of fun and entertainment and are usually free to attend.
