    Nike rockets were held at the NATO rocket station. Before the plant, there were demonstrations and sit-ins in the 1980s by supporters of the peace movement, including in January 1984. The rockets were disassembled under the INF Treaty in 1988 and removed, the base closed in 1990.

    Karl-Heinrich Müller acquired the area in 1994 and had the existing buildings rebuilt. The designs for the further design of the rocket station (buildings and sculptures) were presented in 1996 at the 6th Architecture Biennale in Venice. Today, a large number of artists, poets, composers and scientists work on the site.
    Since September 2004, the Langen Foundation's art and exhibition center has been on the grounds of the rocket station, designed by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando.
    In the area, the foundation plans to use the building and nature, the project "Raumortlabor". The historic Strategic Railway Dam touches the museum grounds.
    After the death of Karl-Heinrich Müller in 2007, the completion of various buildings on the grounds of the foundation was uncertain. The "House for Musicians" according to plans by the architect Raimund Abraham was completed in 2014. [1] It has four practice rooms that span two floors, large common areas, a studio space, four apartments and a library. The inner courtyard and the underground arena can also be used.

  • The rocket station as a collection of exhibition houses of modern art is worth seeing for its architecture alone.

  • The rocket station is a museum site near Holzheim. From 1962 to 1988, NATO missiles were kept ready.
    The museum buildings are currently (July 2020) closed, but the outside area is also very interesting and worth seeing. Benches invite you to take a break.

  • We were on the outside area, which is very spacious and also worth seeing. Some artists have settled here. A cafe can also be visited.
