The Forum für Fotografie is located just steps from the Rhine riverfront in the Cologne Südstadt neighborhood. Its generous architecture and exceptional atmosphere will lend your event a stylish background. Whether you are planning a company party, a conference, a performance event, a book reading, or a private celebration, we can offer you the accommodation and services you are looking for.


The ample 140 m2 exhibition space is appropriate for a wide variety of events, from meetings to parties, seminars to social functions. Sit-down dinner for up to 46 guests is also possible. The space is excellent for cabaret events, chamber music, recitals, or one-person theater pieces as well, and permits seating for an audience of up to 180.


The open 50 m2 atrium with seating for around 40, is well-suited for presentations, slideshows and film screenings, seminars, and discussion forums. For meetings with smaller groups you might like to use our cozy 32 m2 cafeteria; the five tables with space for 12 guests make an inviting place to linger over a coffee or a chat. When the weather is pleasant our courtyard is a superb spot to celebrate; this is also where smokers may gather.
