Tram *16* to Gasteig
'''Haidhausen''' is a district of [[MunichImage:Haidhausen.jpg|thumb|200px|Haidhausen]], where the Kultfabrik and Ostbahnhof can be found.
'''Haidhausen''' is a residential district just to the east of the [[Munich]] city center where the Kultfabrik and Ostbahnhof can be found.
The Kultfabrik claims to be the largest party zone in Europe as it has been developed into a maze of bars, clubs, skate parks, cinemas, games halls, climbing walls etc.
 
Haidhausen is also referred to as the "French Quarter", since most streets are named after French cities, and the streets and places are arranged in a pattern oftentimes found in France.
==Get in==
To get there, take any S-Bahn or the U5 and get off at the Ostbahnhof or Rosenheimer Platz train station. If you want to go to Kultfabrik/Optimolwerke , go to Ostbahnhof and either follow the signs, or the stream of teenagers. If you go by subway, Ostbahnhof or Max-Weber-Platz are the stations of your choice. Tram lines 15,18,19 and 25 are also going to or through the quarter. From the inner city, Bus lines 100 and 152 may be an option. Quite slower than the rail-based transport but good to get some impressions of the city.

=== Discos (Kultfabrik/Optimolwerke) ===
This place is a 60,000 square-metre entertainment mecca. After Europe's largest disco complex - located in the terminal buildings of the former munich Munich airport - had to close in 1996, the city had to find a replacement for the crowds of partygoers. It was called '''Kunstpark Ost (KPO)''' because of its location in a former industrial complex near the eastern railway station. Rumors about closing this area too started soon and according to the bills of its clubs and bars it should have been closed at least four times a year. In in 2003 , it looked as if the days of the KPO are really countedwere closing, so some of the clubs moved to an area 200m in the west called [http://www.optimolwerke.de/ , '''Optimolwerke''']. However , most clubs on in the original area (renamed to [http://www.kultfabrik.info/ '''Kultfabrik''']) remained remain open . Kultfabrik and Optimolwerke (and two more discos on the west end of the whole area) are one big complex and most people do not distinguish whether they go to Kultfabrik, Optimolwerke, Kunstpark Ost or the "KPO" (pronounced like the English letters). To have so many discos and clubs on a relatively small area is brilliant and efficient as there is something for (nearly) every taste. And if you don't get into one, there is always a few weeks another club to try. The crowds don't arrive until midnight or later noone talked about closing it any , but if you come earlier, you are morelikely to get cheaper/free entry.  * <drink name="Americanos City" alt="" address="Hochbrückenstr. 3 80331 München" directions="" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">Intimate space with a stylish decor, while the crowd can be quite young, the drinks pack a punch at a cheap price.</drink> * <drink name="Babylon 2" alt="" address="Georg-Elser-Hallen, Rosenheimerstr.143, Haidhausen" directions="" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">The biggest club in the Kultfabrik neighbourhood, with at least two separate rooms playing varying types of music such as German techno, house and soul.
