Theater am Kornmarkt
The State Theatre in Bregenz plays a significant role in the cultural happenings of Vorarlberg’s state capital. The repertoire ranges from classics to debut performances. The theatre, as a place of imagination, stories and emotions, focuses consciously on traditional and contemporary theatre art, thus finding its recognition in the cultural landscape of the Lake Constance region.
The Art House stands in the light of Lake Constance. Its structure is built from glass plates, steel and a stone mass of cast concrete that forms structure and space in the interior of the building. Viewed from outside, the building gives the impression of an illuminant.
In Bregenz, locals and visitors alike enjoy the interplay of contrasts:

It offers its guests the best views – not just at the lake stage – and a setting that leaves one wanting more: cycling, hiking, bathing, a boat trip, a shopping stroll, concerts, museums, galleries, etc. – simply put, the plus by the lake.
