Soak into Chinese contemporary art
798 Art District

If you would like to learn more about Chinese contemporary art, the 798 Art District should be your first place to visit. Here, you will discover a new wave of modern art, and might even bump into some of the artists that are making this creative movement happen.

In Beijing, 798 Art District embodies the country’s cutting-edge art movement led by enthusiastic and innovative pioneering artists. Evolved from a German-designed abandoned factory, the building that houses the 798 Art District has developed an interesting culture from the mix of Chinese and Bauhaus-influenced styles. Nowadays, as more and more artists assemble there, many brilliant artworks are produced and displayed in this district. It has become a unique cultural concept and a new modern landmark of Beijing.

The 798 Art District is located in the Dashanzi Area, northeast of central Beijing, and a 15-minute drive from Kempinski Hotel Beijing Lufthansa Center. The opening hours are 10 am to 6 pm, Tuesday to Sunday. We suggest visitors allow one to two hours as a minimum to fully explore the area. It is free to enter.
