The Fraunhofer Center Benediktbeuern wants to engage in an active exchange with the present and its regional environment. Now that the renovation work has been completed, the building is available for events on the topics of heritage conservation, building physics and the energy-efficient renovation of old buildings, as well as for other research projects, and can be used accordingly in this regard. Guided tours and exhibitions are also offered to demonstrate directly on the building diverse solutions for renovating old buildings and preserving historical monuments. The current exhibition uses information boards, exhibits and building physics experiments to explain the renovation work carried out on the building and current research projects. The building physics laboratory ( measuring facilities) can also be visited. A traveling exhibition organized by the Cultural Heritage Research Alliance is also planned.
The Alte Schäfflerei offers rooms of various sizes for meetings, seminars, conferences and networking events in a historic building with a unique atmosphere. Renovated as a model, the building can be used as a demonstration object for events relating to the energy-efficient renovation of old buildings.
