Hello Café Exchange!

With Café Exchange (former Kassenhalle) we present an extended program and a new spot, run and created by Alexander Afrough, to have your daily dose of exquisite caffeine, topped with inspiration. We think these times call for a space which encourages to look beyond your own nose – a space to get together, mix up ideas, put heads together, get in contact and exchange thoughts, knowledge, visions and utopias!

Opening Hours:
Mon–Fri 13:00–18:00
