ufaFabrik

The ufaFabrik is a well-known culture and social centre beside the Teltow Canal in Tempelhof. The former film copying works belonged to a subsidiary of UFA (Universum Film AG). After production ceased in 1956 the site stood empty for many years, until it was squatted in 1979 by a commune from Sch├Âneberg and opened up for all kinds of cultural and social activity.

About 40 people lease the complex from the city and live there. Alongside the diverse cultural programme, the use of alternative energy and ecological materials is another speciality. Interested visitors may inform themselves on site about questions of energy supply and many others.
