Haus der Jugend Barmen is a thriving community venue in the heart of Wuppertal. Famous as a popular city youth center, it offers a varied program of cabaret acts, literature readings, theatricals, and well-curated concerts, among other events. The cultural house occupies a 19th-century Hall of Fame and the building serves as a fine example of the Neo-Renaissance architectural style. Dance galas and children's theater festivals are also organized at Barmen's Haus der Jugend. In the past, several noted musicians and theater artists like Kris Pohlmann, Joscho Stephan, and Joachim Witt have graced the stage at Jugend.
