Year-on-year, the top-class calendar of events, made up of concerts, readings, special exhibitions and lectures, underpins Villa Esche's claims to be a national platform for culture.
It also offers a comprehensive service of professional event management: organisation, project management, decoration, event technology, catering, supporting programme, artistic engagement, guided tours of the villa as well as individual support for each event, etc.
In establishing conceptions for their events, companies continue to appreciate the authentic connection of the premises and the Esche family to the economic history (of Saxony) and successful entrepreneurship.
By providing the history of Esche's stocking manufacturing company, our tours also convey a piece of the industrial history of Saxony, offer an insight into the works of van de Velde and illustrate the significance of Chemnitz as a milestone on the European Henry van de Velde Route.
On the ground floor, the former dining room and music salon, which largely retain their original furnishings, give an impression of the authentic ambiance of the "living space" designed by van de Velde. Upstairs, a permanent exhibition in the former bedroom, children's room and bathroom provides an insight into the complete works of the versatile artist.
Clear documentation of the elaborate restoration works as well as a showcase exhibition of Esche's company and family complete the offering.
With a seating capacity of 70 in a stylish atmosphere with a view of the van de Velde building, a young, creative catering team and an exceptional wine list, the restaurant guarantees to delight the senses of its guests.
