Backstage Tour

During this tour, visitors may be lucky enough to get a glimpse behind the studio doors of the guest artists, and the initiatives based at Q21 talk about their work. The tour also includes a guided visit to the current exhibition at the frei_raum Q21 exhibition space (Exhibitions April-November).

The guided tours will start again on July 2.

Due to the current situation there will be no guided tours until further notice.
