From May 15th the Café will be open during the museum opening times.

With the K+ Café at KWM, a new place for culture, exchange and culinary delights will open in Krefeld on April 2 and 3, 2022. The new museum café was designed by the internationally renowned designer Robert Stadler as a total work of art, combining a high quality of stay with contemporary design and fascinating references to the textile history of the city and its art museums. In addition to the restaurant as its core element, the café fulfills numerous functions as an event location and meeting place formembers of the public with a video lounge, bar area, reading corners, sun terrace and more. A large number of businesses and sponsors from Krefeld were actively involved in the realization of the café. More on the subject of café partners at: engagement.

the new name for our café!

The name has been found: K + Café im KWM

The new café in the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum will be called “K + Café im KWM”, or simply “K +”. Over 400 suggestions were received after our call. We would like to thank all senders for their creative ideas!

The jury finally combined two suggestions for a unique name: The letter “K” together with “Café Plus” resulted in the formula: K +. The plus, graphically simply as a sign “+”, emphasizes the open concept as a characteristic of the place that goes beyond a simple café: it is an exhibition in itself, the great flexibility of the room design and the variety of future users.

It is named after suggestions by three women living Krefeld: Barbara Beier, Susanne Till and Sylvia Weißenborn. Barbara Beier created the name “Café Plus”. Susanne Till suggested "K3: Kunst-Kaffee-Krefeld". Sylvia Weißenborn found the title “K im KWM”; for them the "K" stands for the words "Krefeld, art, culture, conference, creativity and Kaffee / café".

We are looking forward to the new "K+ Café im KWM" with everyone in Krefeld.
