The WESTWERK is an art quarter and off space located in the creative neighbourhood of Plagwitz in Leipzig (Germany), between the Karl-Heine-Straße and the Weißenfelser Straße directly at the King Albert Bridge on the Karl-Heine-Canal.
The Westwerk is an important place for many people in the West of Leipzig. It is a symbolic place for an uncommercial, creative and also subversive character, which Leipzig increasingly loses.
The origins of the former industrial site date back to the 19th century. The WESTWERK is a starting point for everyone and diversity is one of its core values. There are a variety of offers like gastronomy, exhibitions, markets, music events, theater, training and more. Artisans, artists, traders and professionals, freelancers, clubs, and musicians find in WESTWERK a place of collective and progressive work, a place to be in order to realize goals, desires, plans and projects.
