“Brought a 400 pages monster. All the eyes were needed to make a novel out of it. Villa Waldberta gave me the amazing privilege of time and quiet to work on it, I hope, one day I can give something back.”

(Manuel Jorge Marmelo, Portugal)

We offer the time and space for open-ended, creative processes. These are more important to us than a perfect final product.

Space for
Exchange

We create encounters, exchanges, and networks in the Munich scene as well as in the “Five Lakes Region” with different event formats.

„It was a great stay in Munich, filled with warm memories, good conversations and interesting encounters.“

(Jakob Kukula, Germany)
