Dampfzentrale Bern rents out its premises for commercial closed events, taking into account its own cultural program. The unique architecture and the special ambience of the rooms lend themselves to a wide variety of events.

Dampfzentrale Bern does not rent its premises to event organizers, political organizations and companies whose values are very different from those of Dampfzentrale. Our values are based on our self-commitment, which will soon be available online here.

As a curated house, we can only consider requests for public events in rare cases.
