The Industrial Salon Schöneweide has set itself the task of making Schöneweide’s important industrial culture visible on site and thus strengthening the location in the long term. Technology, history, lectures, conversations, personal memories and music – the Industrial Salon is a place of encounter and communication. Until reunification, the approximately 400 square meter hall housed the preliminary workshop of the Oberschöneweide transformer factory (TRO). Now it offers space for exhibitions and functions as a show depot, salon and visitor center. The former factory museum of the “VEB Werk für Fernsehelektronik” (WF) can be discovered here. A permanent exhibition provides an overview of the development of the Schöneweide industrial estate – from the founding period to the companies active on site today. At the counter of the visitor center you can get information about tourist offers in Treptow-Köpenick and about Berlin’s industrial culture. District mayor Oliver Igel has taken over the patronage of the industrial salon Schöneweide.
We are happy to guide visitors through our exhibitions.
The entrance is free. We are looking forward to your visit!
