The former barracks is now the number one place for cultural events in Basel. A gaggle of buildings surrounding a meadow hosts diverse exhibitions and all manner of cultural happenings. The complex includes a bar, a restaurant, and a theater/concert space, designed in a lively combination. The meadow is the only real green space in this part of Basel. It is often used as a sports pitch, and on warm summer nights serves the visitors to the events as a relaxing space. And while the theater management constantly succeeds in attracting sought after international companies to Basel, the concert organizers keep a firm eye on the newest trends and alternative groups.
