Klangraum Krems Minoritenkirche

The Minorite Church Stein from the 13th century is the oldest mendicant order church north of the Alps. Little is known about its foundation in 1224. In 1796, the convent was closed and the building taken over as a tobacco storage and factory. Since 1951, the restored church building has been a place for special exhibitions, hosting a number of significant art exhibitions like Romance Art in Austria, Gothic in Lower Austria, Franz von Assisi, etc. From 1992 to 2001 the Minorite Church was used as a location for exhibitions and concerts by the Kunstmeile Krems, the program primarily being dedicated to contemporary art, and especially dealing with the concept of “space” immanent to present day art.
At the beginning of 2002, the church was handed over to the NÖ-FestivalGes.m.b.H. which has introduced a comprehensive adaptation and restoration project of the whole building. In the future, the church will primarily serve as a centre for contemporary music—Klangraum Krems Minoritenkirche.
