The Kulturhaus "Alter Schlachthof" is one of the largest cultural providers in the region. Every year, about 200 live events take place on the premises of the "Alter Schlachthof".
In the field of cabaret and comedy NATIONAL KNOWN ARTISTS perform, as well as NEW DISCOVERIES that are still waiting to be known.
The area of music events is as broad as the scene itself: from CLASSIC TO PUNK, FROM FOLK TO ROCK AND BLUES: the "PUB-MUSIC-NIGHT" has a special place. In this framework different artists perform in the pub of the Kulturhaus. In summer, this series is complemented by the"CULTURE SUMMER", which takes place in the Biergarten, weather permitting.
In the KINO of the Kulturhaus there is an ADORABLE ENTERTAINMENT PROGRAM, which has been awarded with many prizes for an excellent program composition.
But the other cultural sectors are not neglected either: readings, theater performances, exhibitions, dance events and parties are also held here.
Legendary are the"GRÄFTE-TRÖDEL", where twice a year the biggest flea market of the region along the city wall of Soest invites to look and bargain.
The GASTSTÄTTE is open on event days from 6 p.m. and offers a variety of drinks as well as small snacks. The SEMINAR ROOMS OF THE CULTURAL HOUSE are used by many Soest associations for their meetings and by companies for conferences.
