What is the GüterHalle für Alle?

We are an initiative of Tübingen residents, including many immediate neighbors, who would like the currently vacant old freight station building in the Eisenbahnstraße to become a lively meeting place for people of all ages that welcomes people from near and far. We want to turn the existing hall and the surrounding building ensemble into a vibrant new cultural center for the Güterbahnhof district, the Südstadt, and the city of Tübingen. We want a place that attracts art, culture, and people – a “Hall for All,” a GüterHalle für Alle.

Why are we looking for your ideas?

It has not yet been decided what will happen to the building ensemble, including the hall. This large, vacant building ensemble is a huge opportunity! We have many ideas, but perhaps you also have visions of what the GüterHalle für Alle and the space in front of it (towards Eisenbahnstrasse) should look like. We are looking for YOUR ideas for the building in order to put together a colorful, multimedia exhibition. There are no limits to your imagination!

What can be part of the exhibition?

Quite simply: a DIN A4 (letter sized) sheet of paper or a series of several connected DIN A4 sheets, which may be filled with drawings, paintings, collages, or beautifully designed texts.

In addition, or alternatively, you may submit video clips, or audio recordings, or podcasts of a maximum length of 30 seconds with your ideas for the GüterHalle für Alle. The contributions may be spoken in your native language (please submit a translation into German) or be bilingual. We want to reach everyone!

What should the art objects, podcasts, and videos be about?

Ask yourselves: How do I imagine the GüterHalle für Alle in the Güterbahnhof area? What could happen here? Which events could take place inside the hall together with the adjacent open space towards Eisenbahnstrasse?

What would make you want to go and spend time here? Why and with whom would you want to get together here?

Think about what would inspire and attract you: What should the building complex look like outside and inside? What is your design for the GüterHalle für Alle?

Everyone can participate, old or young, with or without artistic ambitions, or previous knowledge.

We are looking for imaginative as well as concrete, realizable ideas.



We would like to present your ideas on the website of the Güterbahnhof neighborhood ( as quickly as possible and, hopefully, also in an exhibition in or around the Güterhalle. We will include your ideas in our application for a resident-friendly redesign of the currently vacant Güterbahnhofsensemble.
