The Oldest Jazz Club in Eastern Germany

In the “Kulturfabrik Alte Mälzerei”, where beginning in 1873 coffee was once roasted, you can still almost smell the aroma of fresh malt coffee. Today, the oldest jazz club in eastern Germany is located here as well as the jazz archives of the Lippmann+Rau Foundation which is dedicated to the exciting (world) history of jazz.

In the Gründerzeit’s Alte Mälzerei with its intact machinery, malt for beer breweries was initially produced as of 1873. Later, malt coffee was produced. After a long period of vacancy, the industrial monument was sold to the city of Eisenach in the 1980s.  In addition to the jazz, blues, folk and rock concerts in the jazz cellar, the Lippmann-Rau Music Archive with its extensive scientific media collection is one with international recognition.
