Food and drinks

Against the backdrop of an empty industrial factory and large vacant lots in the district of Bettenhausen, the Sandershaus opened in 2017 as the city’s first hostel. The Sandershaus is, however, more than that: it is a place for culture and the art of sustainable handiwork such as repair cafés, and the upcycling movement. The team shows its hospitality by operating not only a bar, a restaurant, and a hostel but also the Amal, a housing for refugees.

Serigrafistas queer have set up a rural meeting place outside of the Haferkakaofabrik that they use as a gathering space: in Argentina they make prints for LGBTTTIQ+. Also present are Sa Sa Art Projects, and Trampoline House, which furthers its ongoing work supporting refugees.
