Volunteering in Munich – how can I help?

Would you like to convey culture on a voluntary basis in Munich? Are you interested in art and culture and would you like to get involved in social projects?

With our volunteer mediators, we reach our cultural guests in personal conversations. We provide free cultural offerings by telephone or on site at food distribution points and lunch tables.

The large group of volunteers who volunteer with us are the backbone of the organization. There is also a full-time team that forms the organizational basis.

Citizens from all areas of our society and all age groups form a heterogeneous, collegial one Team.

That's what our volunteers say

"I really enjoyed working with you and I'm glad to have met such nice and interesting people and also such a great project. Thank you also for the beautiful guided tours and events that I was allowed to participate in! That is really something special at the Kulturraum and shows the appreciation you have for the volunteers.”

“The contact with the guests allows us to hear and see what expectations the guests have of an event. Very often they say “thank you” because it allows them to participate in social life.”
