Renting the Erholunghaus

Das Erholungshaus in Leverkusen aus der Vogelperspektive

Become your own host and rent the Erholungshaus for your events. Whether a cultural event or a business event, we can offer you the right space in a location with historical and architectural value.


The neo-baroque Erholungshaus was opened in 1908 as a Bayer AG cultural centre and is the oldest venue in Leverkusen. The name "Erholungshaus" reflects the entrepreneurial spirit of the early 20th century, as the building, with its gymnasium, restaurant and reading room, initially served primarily as a meeting, entertainment, educational and sports facility for employees, their families and the cultural works clubs. In the post-war years a lively guest performance business began to develop with renowned theatres such as the Burgtheater in Vienna, the Düsseldorf Schauspielhaus and many Cologne theatres. Badly damaged by fire in 1975, the Kulturhaus was reopened in 1977 after extensive building work. Since then, several renovation measures have followed. Throughout the year, the Erholungshaus hosts numerous cultural events, including the Leverkusen Jazztage, but the house can also be rented for corporate events, congresses and conferences.




The Erholungshaus has several rooms available for you as a host. The rooms can be combined variably. We would be pleased to offer you a solution that is tailored to your individual needs. Please contact us for a personal arrangement!
