The Venues

The venues of the Monheim Triennale this year are the festival ship "MS Rheingalaxie" at the Monheim jetty, the cultural centre "Sojus 7", the café "Goldener Hans", the picturesque "Deusser Garten" , the "Evangelische Altstadtkirche" and the most magical place in town - the Monheim Rhine bank.

Festival Boat "MS Rheingalaxie"

The MS Rheingalaxie of the "Köln-Düsseldorfer Rheinschiffahrt" is 85 meters long and 14 meters wide. It is the main venue of the the Monheim Triennale and offers with its interior and exterior deck good conditions for our concerts.

As a floating stage, the venue dissolves the visual boundary between water and land and includes the Rhine as part of the new and very special music festival of the Monheim Triennale.

Sojus 7

The socio-cultural centre Sojus 7 has existed in Monheim am Rhein since 1988. Now under municipal sponsorship, cultural events such as parties, concerts, cabaret, comedy, exhibitions and the children's creative week (VHS Monheim) as well as concerts of the MONHEIM TRIENNALE take place here.

Deusser Garden

The famous painter August Deusser once lived in the "Deusser House". He got his inspiration from the adjacent garden. Today the house documents the 1800-year history of Monheim am Rhein. Deusser's drawings of the „Marienkapelle“ and the former Gethmann cabbage factory (now Sojus 7) show how present these places were even then.

Music, dance, joy and togetherness. The grass tickles under your feet, the blue sky frames the surrounding trees. The garden is a place of art - and of making music together.

Zum goldenen Hans

"Zum goldenen Hans" is the temporary home of the volunteer-run socio-cultural center "Sojus 7" in Monheim, a partner of the Monheim Triennale. The home of "Sojus 7", a former turnip cabbage factory, is currently being completely renovated and expanded. The "golden Hans" is THE cultural meeting place in Monheim and pulsates as an interface of different music genres and events.

In order to bring culture closer to the people even during the Corona Pandemic, the Sojus 7 has launched the participatory radio station"Radio Rakete". Our Artist in Residence Achim Tang regularly hosts radio shows there and has regularly reported on the Monheim Triennial in the radio show „Festivalrakete“.

Also during "The Prequel" the café serves as a place for Triennale artists to meet Monheim artists.

Evangelische Alstadtkirche

The Protestant Old Town Church (Evangelische Altsdatkirche) in Monheim am Rhein, built in 1858, was renovated in 2017 and is open to Monheim citizens for cultural encounters. It was the exhibition site of the sound installation "continuum. From the inside of the stream" by Frank Schulte.

Monheim's Rhine promenade has changed its face in recent years: The jetty, the Rheinkiesel, the hotel, the sculpture "Leda" by Markus Lüpertz and the Monheim Geyser have already made it a special place. With the Kulturraffinerie K714, the redesign of the Rhine bank and the area around the Marienkapelle, the Rhine promenade will become a new cultural highlight in Monheim am Rhein.
