The Alte Kelter, or Old Winepress, built in 1906 and dedicated in 1907, was at the time the largest of its type in Württemberg. Unused for a long time, in September 2000 after meticulous renovation it was re-opened as a multifunctional house of culture. With about 2500 square metres of exhibition floor space, the Alte Kelter has one of the largest exhibition areas in south Germany. The building combines the functionality and sobriety of purpose-built industrial architecture with the craftsmanship of timber frameworking. The vast roof structure is open to view and particularly impressive as it spans the entire area of 3000 square meters. The Japanese artist Kazuhito Nishikawa created twenty-four partition walls especially for the Alte Kelter, which – depending on the nature of the event and the requirements – allow the interior to be varied at will.
