Forum Velbert


Cultural center and theaters
The origins of today's Forum Velbert date back to 1972, when it appeared as Forum Niederberg. In 1976, the construction was finalized on the basis of an architectural competition, and the groundbreaking ceremony took place at Europaplatz in 1979.

After 35 years of use, the content of the Forum Niederberg no longer matched the social requirements of the city of Velbert. The conversion into a meeting place for society as a whole, in which people from different cultures and social backgrounds of all ages have a place to meet and experience, was implemented between 2019 and 2023.

The completed Forum Velbert celebrated its official opening in September 2023.

The Forum Velbert offers space for events and meetings. Film screenings are offered in cooperation with the Weltspiegel Kino Mettmann, and the Velbert Library invites visitors young and old to read and linger in a modern atmosphere. The family meeting point and a cafe on the ground floor serve as central contact and meeting points in Velbert-Mitte.
The vhs Velbert/Heiligenhaus as well as the Velbert Music and Art School also use rooms in the Forum Velbert for their courses and offerings.
