The rusting steel dinosaur towers high above Odonien as if to guard it. Yet it only shows you the way to a truly special experience. Whether art in the open-air studio, legendary festival, experimental music, theatre, comedy, open-air cinema, sculpture park, flea market or party location: Odonien is all that. Enter!
Around the corner from the brothel and open for (almost) everything: Odonien as a location At first glance a junkyard, Odonien turns out to be an adventurous location on second glance. In the shadow of Europe's largest erotic centre, you are immersed in a bizarre industrial landscape. With sculptures made of scrap metal, found objects or industrial leftovers, with metal-hammered mannequins, warehouse-like rooms, small industrial halls or discarded buses. This ambience alone is worth the visit.
Unique and typically Cologne, worlds and people of all colours come together here. Because every Jeck is different. That's what makes it so relaxed - and exciting anyway. On this occasion: Have you ever gone to the toilet in a tiger cage?
Experimental, legendary, wacky
If you ask Odonians and their visitors: "What's special about Odonien?", they'll tell you: The bizarre aesthetics of the location - the variety of events and activities. Because according to Odo Rumpf, "everything is welcome that fits the concept and the environment." Accordingly, things can get wild, artistic and experimental. Legendary - and known beyond Cologne's city limits - is Robodonien: the creative robot art music festival.
Little Burning Man op Kölsch: Robodonien, da simma dabei So get ready ... When it's time for Robodonien, elaborately constructed automata, androids and machine creatures come to life on the grounds - and accompany you into a world full of creative electronics, cybernetics,
pyrotechnics, performances and multimedia shows, street theatre and experimental music by artists from all over the world.
Our tip: The fire-breathing dragons, robot horses, monstrous steel creatures and flame throwers are of course particularly imaginative at night. You have to experience it - whether you're from Cologne or not.
