The Venue

The Alte Kongresshalle (Old Congress Hall) has been a center for public and private events since it was built in 1952/53. The venue is located near Theresienwiese in the heart of Munich. Edith-Haberland-Wagner Stiftung renovated the imposing building and modernized its technical setting. The Alte Kongresshalle is now an ideal setting for various kinds of events – and the perfect stage for JS Kongress.
