Nightlight-loving people and friends of cheerful parties won’t be disappointed by the choice of pubs and clubs in Kempten – be it the stylish cocktail bar, an iconic pub, the Irish pub or a classy wine bar. The centre of town offers the right location for all ages and preferences.

A trendy location such as the Künstlercafé, or “Künstler“ – as the locals like to refer to this place – is a place where, apart from drinks and food, the visitors are entertained regularly: Live music and improvised theatre on the stage are part of a fixed programme.
Or what about the Parktheater? An Art Déco building that used to be the Kempten cinema, with the largest cinema auditorium in Bavaria.
