The Reinbeckhallen are part of a listed building complex built over a century ago. For decades, their historical halls served as a production site for transformers and high-voltage systems, initially for Allgemeine Elektricitäts-Gesellschaft (AEG) and later for Transformatorenwerk Oberschöneweide (TRO). Shortly following the turn of the 21st century, an art and cultural centre was envisioned on its premises and a new chapter in the Reinbeckhallen’s history began.
The Reinbeckhallen have now been renovated, an endeavour that carefully preserved its industrial past, and house the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen and its exhibition spaces, the Exhibition Hall and the Project Room.
Next to the Stiftung Reinbeckhallen, in the former gatehouse of the TRO, is Café Schöneweile. Whether sitting inside or on its large, sunny terrace, one can leave all stresses behind and enjoy excellent coffee, homemade cakes, and seasonal food here. Its opening hours are the following:
Monday–Friday | 10 AM–6 PM
Saturday–Sunday & Holidays | 1–6 PM
