As the power station of the Essen branch of the Krupp group, the Kesselhaus was the starting point of a swift industrial and urban development in Munich-Freimann. Designed by some of the most influential planners of the time (Theodor Fischer and Otto Ernst Schweizer), the Kesselhaus exemplifies the skill and craftsmanship of the master builders of the age. Its heavy steel-frame structure was designed to carry enormous payloads and still impresses visitors today. The crane construction in the inside is still in good condition as are parts of the boiler system and the old chimney.
After having stood empty for more than ten years, the Kesselhaus`s new owner Wolfgang Nöth has restored it to a high standard and large scale and subsequently converted it into an event hall. The first event took place in February 2007. Since then, the Kesselhaus has been highly popular with many well-known companies (e.g. BMW) and welcomes national and international artists (e.g. Pink) onto its stage.
