The Mayors residence in Werden is a theatre with a very personal touch. The classical villa was constructed by the industrialist Friedrich Vogelsang in 1833 and was given his name as the home of the last mayor of Werden. This building has become a cultural meeting point for the town since 1985 and is now a listed building.

Known jazz musicians and new classical talent now perform in the surroundings of baroque style covered walls and noble style. Elegant chamber music evenings, readings and exhibitions fill the residence with life. The audience have the opportunity to meet the artists following the performances.
