The Gasteig is a cultural center in Munich and is home to the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra. The cultural center was built on the area on which the Bürgerbräukeller, the famous brewery was founded, where on November 8, 1939, Georg Elser was tempted to attack Adolf Hitler. The brewery was demolished in the seventies and space was used for the construction of the new building. The construction of the cultural center lasted from 1978 to 1985, commissioned by the municipality of Munich. The inauguration took place in 1985 with a concert directed by Sergiu Celibidache. It houses the Volkshochschule (Adult Education Center), the Municipal Library and the Richard Strauss Conservatorium. In addition to these major institutions, she also hosts many of the events of Filmfest München. Gasteig is located on the right bank of the Isar in the Haidhausen district and overlooks the surrounding landscape as a fortress. In 1971 and 1972 the municipality of Monaco presented a contest for the creation of the cultural center, which was won by the Rohe, Rollenhagen and Lindemann, who had been associated for the occasion. In 1978, the bourgeois Georg Kronawitter posed the first stone of the structure. The building is completely made of brick, glass and steel and covers an area of 23,000 square meters. The center has many concert halls of various sizes. The largest hall is the Philharmonie, with about 2500 seats and wood finish to enhance acoustics. Then there is the Carl Orff Saal from about 600 places; the Black Box from about 70 seats; the Kleiner Konzertsaal has about 200 seats. There are then a number of auditoriums where seminars and lessons are held.
