Carmen Würth Forum
The expansion work on the Carmen Würth Forum cultural and convention center in Künzelsau, which opened its doors in 2017, is making rapid progress. The second phase of construction, once again based on plans masterminded by David Chipperfield Architects, will add a conference center and another exhibition space for the Würth Collection’s permanent exhibition—Museum Würth 2. Würth is investing around EUR 39 million into the expansion project. From the summer of 2020 onwards, there will be eleven conference rooms that can be combined to create a larger space able to accommodate up to 700 people. Thanks to a second entrance, an inner courtyard and a café, the venue will be able to host various events in parallel in the future.
The exclusively appointed Carmen Würth Forum currently houses a multifunctional event hall with around 2,500 seats and a chamber music hall with approximately 580 seats. The open-air grounds and the Würth Sculpture Garden also allow all kinds of open-air events to be organized, with space for up to 10,000 visitors. In 2019, the Carmen Würth Forum hosted corporate and cultural events drawing a crowd of more than 60,000 guests in total.
