The Tirolean cultural centres offer a wide programme of cultural variety and invite visitors to engage in artistic exchange.
A cultural centre is both an event venue and meeting place for young and old. Concert hall, theatre stage, for established and yet to be discovered artists, cafés and bars, for discussions and philosophizing. A platform for artistic exchange. Space for creativity, inspiration and participation.
1 · Treibhaus
Although well hidden, Treibhaus ("greenhouse" in English), is located in the city centre. It is intended to be a stage for domestic and international artists, a place where creativity and imagination can run wild, and an open forum for all. The programme is eclectic and ranges from great concerts to brilliant stand-up comedy evenings.
2 · Bäckerei
The Bäckerei ("bakery") is a vibrant platform for cultural and social exchange. Housed in the former industrial bakery premises of Therese Mölk, it is a dynamic space that binds communication, production and presentation together. The Bäckerei sees itself as a mobile experimental platform, able to react flexibly to different requirements. Event planning, advice and support is a collaborative effort – so groups and individuals involved in the projects benefit not only from the exchange of information, but also from an extended network.
3 · Stromboli

With over 100 events per year based on a variety of themes ranging from music, theatre, media art and children’s culture, it provides a boost to the cultural scene of Hall and the region. The café is also very popular.
