Cologne Culture Church
The Kulturkirche in Cologne Nippes has for many years stood for an innovative, varied and high-quality cultural programme. In recent years, the Protestant Cultural Church of Cologne has gained an excellent reputation far beyond the city limits of Cologne through numerous concerts, readings, cabaret events and many events in the fields of film and art. In addition, the Kulturkirche Köln organises workshops and serves as a meeting place for young and old.
History of the Kulturkirche Köln
The history of the Kulturkirche Köln began with its construction in 1889 in the Cologne district of Nippes. Since then, it has served as a contact point for the Protestant parishioners in Cologne and has one of the most beautiful interiors of all Protestant churches in the city. The construction of the Lutherkirche was financed at the time from a fund which promoted the building of other Lutheran churches and was additionally supported by the efforts of numerous people.
THE CONGREGATION OF THE KULTURKIRCHE COLOGNE
As the Protestant church of the Cologne Nippes congregation, the church services are still held every Sunday, and visitors appreciate the unique atmosphere and positive energy of the Lutherkirche. As a result, the church has become a favourite venue for many of the city’s believers. Some of the visitors have made the Lutherkirche an unusual venue for cultural events, which has opened up many new opportunities.
FROM THE LUTHERKIRCHE TO THE CULTURAL CHURCH
This was the birth of a new venue for events of all kinds, and through good management it was constantly evolving. Apart from religious events, which still form the heart of the church, concerts, cabaret, readings, theatre events and many other events with a high-quality programme and renowned artists have established themselves. The fine arts and other artistic branches have also earned a place in the programme of the Kulturkirche Köln.
The facilities of the Kulturkirche Köln
Just like the programme of the Kulturkirche Köln, the technical equipment has also developed. In the meantime, the event location in Cologne Nippes has technical equipment that leaves almost no wish unfulfilled. This enables the artists to perfectly stage their entire skills and has also greatly enhanced the reputation of the Kulturkirche Köln in the art scene. In addition to official events, the Kulturkirche Köln also serves as a backdrop for film and television productions, press conferences and as a venue for corporate events.
Since 2002, the Kulturkirche Köln has been used as a venue for concerts, cabaret evenings, readings and as a presentation venue for visual arts. In addition to renowned artists from the Cologne artist scene, top-class artists from the national and international music and artist scene have also performed here. As a cooperation partner of lit.Cologne, phil.Cologne, WDR and 1Live, the Kulturkirche Köln offers an important artistic centre of the cathedral city. The proceeds from the events are donated to the congregational work of the Protestant Church in Cologne.
Artists such as Brings, Franz Ferdinand, Ed Sheeran, Bob Geldorf, Ten Years After are just a few of the many artists who have given the Kulturkirche Köln unforgettable evenings. Gerd Köster and Frank Hocker, Kobe’s Underground and Morgan Hammond’s gospel courses are almost a must for Cologne residents and visitors from all over Germany.
